Cynthia Erivo demands respect as she transforms into Aretha Franklin in ‘Genius: Aretha’ trailer

The Emmy acclaimed series is set to return March 21 with a brand-new installation that concentrates on the life of Aretha Franklin. A brand-new trailer for the current edition, the series 3rd, was launched Tuesday.

The network stated in a news release that the season will “explore Aretha Franklin’s musical genius and incomparable career, as well as the immeasurable impact and lasting influence she has had on music and culture around the world.”

In addition to Erivo, who is best understood for her functions in “Harriet” and “The Color Purple” on Broadway, the program stars Courtney B. Vance, Malcolm Barrett and David Cross, in addition to others.

Franklin, among the best and most popular artists of our time, passed away in 2018 at age 76.

All episodes of the series will be readily available for streaming on Hulu on March 25, which would have been Franklin’s 79th birthday.
