Jennifer Hudson talks channeling Aretha Franklin's talent, grace, and endurance in the 'Respect' biopic, for the latest issue of InStyle Magazine.

Jennifer Hudson took a minute to stop by 'Entertainment Tonight' while on the carpet for interviews, and she made sure to not only pay her r-e-s-p-e-c-t to Aretha Franklin, but also give props to the late legend's Gospel music roots as well.

Jennifer Hudson teamed up with Carole King and Jamie Hartman to pen an original song from the upcoming Aretha Franklin biopic (RESPECT) soundtrack and by the way this track sounds, we can already tell the entire body of work is going to be fire!

The film based on the life of the Queen of Soul features Forest Whitaker, Mary J. Blige, Marlon Wayans and Marc Maron and arrives in theaters on August 13.

The star-studded Aretha Franklin biopic, Respect, is set for a December release date!

Apparently, the Queen of Soul hand-picked the Oscar winner herself.
