Detroit — Maybe if she sings her a song?

When Aretha Franklin announced earlier in January that a film about her life was finally geting made, she asserted that Halle Berry would be playing lead. On Golden Globes Sunday, Berry said she didn’t have the vocal chops to do the role justice — but that’s not stopping Franklin from wanting her for the role.

Franklin wrote in to the Wendy Williams Show on Monday, the site of her original announcement, to appeal to Berry to reconsider. Williams read the note aloud, which said, “Many actors have portrayed vocalists by lip-synching to the artist’s original recordings,” Franklin wrote.

Berry has yet to respond, though HuffPost Blogger Morris O’Kelly thinks that she is, in fact, perfect for the part.
