Jennifer was handpicked by the 18-time Grammy winner, who died age 76 last year at her Detroit home from a pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor.

'It's a huge job, I'm terrified to be honest. But I'm excited. It's such an honor to do that,' Hudson said on last year.

'We've been actually talking about it for 11 years. Like a year after I won my Oscar, she had me meet her here in New York. We talked about it so now it's actually manifesting and happening!'

On Friday, the Live in Front of a Studio Audience star shot a scene of Aretha arriving outside Radio City Music Hall.
