Jennifer Hudson performing the song made famous by Fantasia in The Color Purple stage play "I'm Here". This is the best performance I've seen from "skinny Jennifer". She performed at the Kennedy Center Honors for Oprah Winfrey who was honored in front of President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.
*side note* It looks like Jennifer is a favorite of the first family. Former President Bill Clinton also had a favorite singer who frequently performed....Aretha Franklin. Looks like this President is really a fan of fellow Chicagoan Jennifer Hudson. Yes, I know this isn't exactly a White House event but still don't you think Fantasia would have been chosen?
The choir is a bit oddball but you know folks love to add a choir somewhere for the dramatic effect.
