Dropping at midnight: Jennifer Hudson sings “Here I Am (Singing My Way Home)” written by her with Carole King for the movie “Respect.”
Carole, of course, wrote Aretha Franklin’s famous “You Make Me Feel Like a Natural Woman.”
“Here I Am” will be up as a possible Best Song nominee for the Oscars next March. Even though Atlantic Records has the “Respect” soundtrack, Epic Records gets the single. But the song will be included on the movie’s soundtrack along with Jennifer’s other Aretha reimaginings.
