Dubbed "The Queen of Soul," Aretha Franklin began her recording career steeped in Gospel anthems. The two worlds could be polarizing, but Franklin easily moved between the two as she walked through a a sometimes difficult path throughout life. Her father has been quoted as saying about her music, “If you want to know the truth, Aretha has never left the church.

Set to premiere in August 2021, the upcoming biopic Respect starring Jennifer Hudson promises to delve into the legendary singer's life and career. Take a look at this special behind-the-scenes featurette showcasing Hudson's transformation into the Queen of Soul.
