The 29-year-old, American Idol alum and breakout star of Dreamgirls dazzles again on the live recording of “No One Gonna Love You” taken from her recent performance on Live On Letterman.
Her powerful vocals chops we saw coming, but the cool R&B sense and the smart use of beats are a fine twist thanks to the additional writers and producers on her sophomore album I Remember Me including R. Kelly, Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Rich Harrison, Ne-Yo and Stargate.
We know the secret to her success was not only her Oscar-winning performance in the film adaptation of the musical Dreamgirls starring Beyonce and Jamie Foxx, but also her spellbinding performances on American Idol. Nonetheless, Ms. Hudson is naturally talented and would’ve attracted a wide audience with or without her TV and film success. Her new album has inspired a Springsteen-size tour schedule, which reminds us how powerful it is to be an Idol. Hudson is the real deal.
“I knew all along I was going to sing for a living, that I was being prepared for something. So far, my career has been full of surprises and blessings, back to back.” – Jennifer Hudson.
