The biopic has been in the works for many years. Aretha was reportedly involved in the production until her death in 2018. Aretha personally chose Jennifer to play her in the film. After the teaser trailer was released, Jennifer performed the song “Young, Gifted & Black” by Aretha at the 2020 BET Awards. The song originally came out in 1972.
