Aretha Franklin: Halle Berry Can Lip-Sync in My Biopic


A fan of Halle Berry, Aretha Franklin insists the Oscar-winning actress can lip-sync if she doesn't want to sing in her biopic.

Aretha Franklin is refusing to give up on her dream of seeing Halle Berry tell her life story on the big screen - the legendary performer insists the actress can lip-sync if she doesn't want to sing in the biopic. The soul star is working with movie bosses to adapt her autobiography "Aretha: From These Roots" into a film, and she's named Berry as her favorite to star.

The Oscar-winner recently admitted she wouldn't feel comfortable taking on a role in a musical picture, saying, "If I could carry a tune, I'd consider it. Someone should tell Aretha that I can't do her justice." But Franklin is determined to get Berry to sign up and she is urging the actress not to dismiss the part.

In a statement read out on the Wendy Williams Show, Franklin says, "She shouldn't underestimate her own talent... I never expected Halle to sing. She's an actress, not a singer. Many actors have portrayed vocalists by lip-syncing to the artist's original recordings."
