Jennifer Hudson is set to play Aretha Franklin in a music biopic, but the Queen of Soul also showed interest in Fantasia Barrino. Hudson and Barrino both came from humble beginnings on "American Idol." Hudson accepted the role and reportedly spoke with Franklin on the phone for hours as preparation. But Barrino is no stranger to the Queen's music. She sang a tribute to Franklin and took the house down. Which singer should play Franklin?

Fantasia sang a tribute to Ms. Franklin and the Queen of Soul seemed pleased with the performance. Franklin is known for throwing off her wig at concerts and Fantasia is known for throwing off her shoes. So Fantasia may, in fact, be the best woman for the job.
