"Respect," the highly-anticipated feature film that chronicles Aretha Franklin's rise to fame, is now in theaters.

To celebrate the movie's release, actress and singer Jennifer Hudson, who stars as Franklin in the film, joined director Liesl Tommy on a promotional swing that took them to several big citires across the U.S.  When the two stopped in Detroit, our founder Terri Lee Chandler had the opportunity to sit down with them for an interview.  Check it out below!
