BWW Album Review: Jennifer Hudson's RESPECT Soundtrack Exquisitely Honors the 'Queen of Soul' and Celebrates Strength in Sisterhood

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but truly getting to know the heart, soul, and essence of a music legend is the ultimate honor. For Oscar-and Grammy-winning actress, Jennifer Hudson, portraying the one and only Aretha Franklin was a serious and cherished commitment. In her soundtrack to the film, Respect, Hudson not only resurrects some of “The Queen of Soul’s” greatest hits but connects deeply to the raw emotions behind them.
