A full version of Memory performed by Jennifer Hudson in the upcoming Cats movie has just been released!
Hudson is set to play Grizabella, the Glamour Cat who is known for singing the iconic song. The track also features vocals from Francesca Hayward, who plays Victoria the White Cat. Cats opens in US cinemas on December 20.
We first heard Hudson sing a few lines from the song when the first trailer was released last July.
