    Halle Berry has gone on record to say that she couldn't and wouldn't play soul diva Aretha Franklin in a biopic about her life because she can't "carry a tune." That ain't no thang, according to Franklin, who wants Berry to reconsider.

    "Many actors have portrayed vocalists by lip-synching to the artist's original recordings," Franklin wrote in a letter read on the Wendy Williams show Monday.

    What do you say, Halle? Will you reconsider?

    Do you think Berry should play Franklin or is there someone else who could do justice to the "role?"
