MGM has released a behind the scenes look at the highly anticipated RESPECT movie starring J-Hud as Aretha Franklin.
The 3 minute clip features stars Mary J. Blige, Marlon Wayans and Forest Whitaker discussing Jennifer’s transformation into the Queen of Soul.
This is a heavy life to portray and I wanted to honor that.- Jennifer Hudson
For the film, Jennifer learned how to play the piano and she sings all the songs live. She will be singing several classics from the Queen of Soul, including; “Think,” “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” and “Respect.”
I have been waiting all year for this movie to see what J-Hud does with Aretha. If her new single “Here I Am,” is any inclination we are in for a treat!
Make sure ya’ll go see RESPECT when the Queen arrives in theaters August 13th.
