The upcoming film will follow the life of the singer Aretha Franklin.
Jennifer Hudson has released a new song called "Here I Am" for the upcoming film Respect. Listen to it here!
The Oscar-winner wrote the song alongside Carole King, and co-written by Jamie Hartman and produced by will.i.am. Respect will be in theaters on August 13.
“Music is such a living and breathing character in this film, as it was in Ms. Franklin’s life. The process of creating this song was like constructing the greatest tribute I could possibly offer to her spirit. It was the final exhale of this extraordinary project and one that I let out with complete fulfillment. Being able to do so with Carole and Jamie was an incredible privilege,” Jennifer said about the new song.
“Carole is one of the greatest songwriters of all time and, whether we were trading stories, playing piano together over video conference, or working through lyrics, it was always a masterclass – both in life and music," she added.
