Jennifer Hudson was hand picked by Aretha Franklin herself, to portray her in a biopic about her life after she passed. Obviously, there is a lot of pressure to be “The Queen of Soul.”
The movie began production, and some of the first photos of Jennifer Hudson as Aretha have surfaced from set, and I think we can all agree that Aretha made the right choice.
