JENNIFER HUDSON WILL PLAY ARETHA FRANKLIN IN HER BIOPIC
Tuesday, Jan 30, 2018

The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin has chosen Jennifer Hudson to portray her in her biopic!


Clive Davis made the announcement at his annual pre-Grammys party when introducing Jennifer Hudson’s performance. He said she was “anointed by Aretha herself.”

Jennifer Hudson took to Instagram to confirm the news with a picture of Rolling Stone’s announcement with the caption, “I don’t even know what to say …. look at God ! #Arethafranklin u have no idea how humbled, I am!”

Aretha Franklin told Wendy Williams a couple years ago that she wanted Halle Berry to portray her, but Halle Berry expressed her concern over her inability to sing, fearing she couldn’t do the legend justice. We can put our fears to rest because we know J-Hud has the pipes and acting skills!

ARETHA FRANKLIN CLAPS BACK AT DIONNE WARWICK… FIVE YEARS LATER
