    We’ve seen Jennifer Hudson sing every Aretha Franklin song in the book. I’ll pass.

    I don’t understand this casting decision at all. That was just Jennifer Hudson singing Respect. Nothing else. We’ll see…

    She was Aretha’s personal choice.

    I hope it goes well for JHud.

    I would have preferred a mini series because Aretha’s career expanded from the 50s to the 90s with hit songs.

    I believe this is in the works too. NatGeo starring Cynthia Erivo, though it’s been pushed back. I actually think this is a better casting decision, regardless of JHud being chosen by Aretha.

    I have a suspicion the Cynthia Erivo miniseries will receive backlash. I don’t think Aretha would’ve approved that casting.

    Many of you may not remember but Aretha originally wanted Halle Berry to portray her. Halle turned it down because she “can’t sing”…..*cut to her lip syncing in “Introducing Dorothy Dandridge”**

    Aretha shaded Halle on Wendy Williams LOL!
