Published: Saturday 14th Aug 2021 by Rashad

Thanks to the long-awaited release of the big screen Aretha Franklin biopic, ‘Respect’ (in theaters now), all eyes are on its star Academy and GRAMMY-winning Jennifer Hudson.

Rightfully so, as she’s not only been garnering acclaim from the industry’s top critics for her portrayal of the Queen of Soul but she’s also hit the promo trail something serious in its support.

Her latest promotional pit stop came Thursday (August 12) via a visit to ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.’  While there, J.Hud stunned the audience with a live rendition of Franklin signature classic, ‘Respect,’ as well as an entertaining conversation about her last moments with the music royal and so much more.

Did you miss the action when it first aired? No worries; we’ve got you covered inside.
