See Jennifer Hudson as Aretha Franklin in new Respect photos

In this exclusive still, Jennifer Hudson‘s Aretha Franklin — a daughter of C.L. Franklin, one of the most famed Black ministers of the mid-20th century — returns to her musical source in a Los Angeles church. “That’s one thing I always wanted to remind everyone, no matter how we approach the music in the film,” Hudson tells EW. “Whether it’s a secular song or a gospel song, you cannot forget her roots… everything from ‘Respect’ to ‘Natural Woman’ to ‘Never Loved a Man,’ it always had that soul, that church, that gospel in it.”
