Jennifer Hudson or Amber Riley as Aretha Franklin

Portraying the Queen of Soul will take a mixture of acting range, attitude and powerhouse vocals. Whether Franklin's classic hits are re-recorded or lipsynched, we think Jennifer Hudson — an early Aretha contender in her planned biopic — or Glee's Amber Riley perfectly captures Franklin's essence at any age.
