‘Respect’ follows the rise of Aretha Franklin’s (Jennifer Hudson) career from a child singing in her father’s church’s choir to her international superstardom, the remarkable true story of the music icon’s journey to find her voice.
The film charts Franklin’s success and hardship, working through personal loss at a young age and releasing her first song while on a gospel tour with her father in her early teens. As time goes on Aretha chooses her own path, moving from gospel to pop on her way to super stardom in the late 1960s to late 1970s experiencing more than her fair share of personal drama along the way.
