Following the rise of Aretha Franklin’s career from a child singing in her father’s church’s choir to her international superstardom, RESPECT is the remarkable true story of the music icon’s journey to find her voice.

Academy Award®-winner Jennifer Hudson (2007, Best Supporting Actress, “Dreamgirls”) — handpicked by Franklin — headlines an all-star cast that includes Oscar®-winner Forest Whitaker (2007, Best Actor, “The Last King of Scotland”), Mary J. Blige, Marlon Wayans and four-time Emmy®-nominee Tituss Burgess.
