Aretha Franklin’s gripping journey to not only find her voice, but also the acclaim she so rightfully deserved as a musical icon, is powerfully chronicled in this year’s biopic about her life, ‘Respect.’ Academy and Grammy Award-winning entertainer, Jennifer Hudson stunningly portrayed her fellow soul singer’s at-times turbulent, but ultimately successful, trek to garner the respect of not only the music industry, but also audiences around the world, in the movie.
