Singer Jennifer Hudson shares a very beautiful song she titles (You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman.
Speaking about the song, the songstress who would be qcting as Aretha Franklin in the new biopic titled ‘Respect’ had this to say:
“Music is such a living and breathing character in this film, as it was in Ms. Franklin’s life,” Hudson said in a statement. “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… Our goal was to show that music was always the anchor for Ms. Franklin, in all that she did, and I hope this song illustrates the strength of her voice – both literally and figuratively – which always brought her home.”
Respect is set to arrive in theaters August 13th, and the soundtrack will be released the same day. Along with Hudson, the cast includes Forest Whitaker, Marlon Wayans, Audra McDonald, Marc Maron, Tituss Burgess and Mary J. Blige.
Looking out on the morning rain
I used to feel so uninspired
And when I knew I had to face another day
Lord, it made me feel so tired
Before the day I met you
Life was so unkind
And you’re the key to my peace of mind
‘Cause you make me feel
You make me feel
You make me feel like a natural woman (Woman)
And when my soul was in the lost and found
You came along to claim it
I didn’t know just what was wrong with me
Till your kiss helped me name it
Now I’m no longer doubtful of what I’m living for
But if I make you happy, I don’t need to do more
