Aretha Franklin Begs Halle Berry To Play Her
It may be the first time an artist has ever advocated for lip-synching.
Aretha Franklin begged Halle Berry to play her in a forthcoming biopic on the Queen of Soul, writing into The Wendy Williams Show earlier this week to persuade Berry to change her mind. As read aloud by Wendy Williams, Franklin wrote, "Many actors have portrayed vocalists by lip-synching to the artist's original recordings."
The note was in response to Berry's hesitations regarding her vocal ability. At the Golden Globes, Berry told Ryan Seacrest, "If I could carry a tune, I'd consider it. Someone should tell Aretha that I can't do her justice." She later told CNN via email, "I adore Aretha...ADORE her,” Berry said, “but I'm sure she would want the actress to sing."
The Oscar-winning actress has yet to respond to Franklin's latest appeal. —ISHITA SINGH
