Aretha Franklin Handpicks Jennifer Hudson To Star In Her Biopic
The Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin has chosen Jennifer Hudson to play her in her upcoming biopic. This news was announced at Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party. Davis is known as ‘the diva whisperer’ so we believe he knows what he’s talking about.
We all have heard Hudson slayyy an Aretha song on occasion and are super hype to see her play this role.
Aretha Franklin’s legacy stretches across six decades. She has countless Hall of Fame honors and is one of the most honored artists in Grammy history. Not many singers can reach the range and soul in the Queen’s voice but Hudson is sure to come close. Jennifer Hudson became a star from the day she sang on American Idol. She (Hudson) is already known for her role in Dreamgirls, which got her an Academy Award. In addition, Hudson has released multiple studio albums, from here she can only go up.
Straight Outta Compton’s Scott Bernstein will be producing the film.
