Talk about R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

The undeniable Queen of Soul, Ms. Aretha Franklin, has actually handpicked Jennifer Hudson to play her in an approaching biopic on her life.

Music magnate Clive Davis made the statement at his yearly pre-Grammy celebration, the most popular ticket in these Grammy Streets, making the statement after Davis brought her onstage to sing a couple of tunes, reports Deadline.

We have the tendency to think Davis when it concerns these things due to the fact that he is referred to as the queen whisperer, working carefully with Franklin, Whitney Houston, Alicia Keys and others.

Hudson apparently sang Franklin classics like Think, and Respect as part of her efficiency (I hope someone got that on video).


She got the chops, she got the chops …
