Raised by her strict Baptist minister father C.L. Franklin (Whitaker), Aretha Franklin (Hudson) had always possessed an incredible singing voice. When she was eventually signed by a recording company, success was elusive. Struggling to find her voice, romance with eventual husband and manager Ted White (Marlon Wayans) and collaboration with a new producer (Marc Maron) would eventually lead to breakout success before the trappings of fame intervened.
Co-starring Audra McDonald, Titus Burgess and Mary J. Blige, Liesl Tommy's drama reveals the incredible life lived by a woman who was a force for change as African Americans sought equality and RESPECT.
