Oscar nominee Jennifer Hudson's star continues to rise. After gracing the cover of almost every major magazine including Vogue, Jennifer is now the new covergirl for LIFE magazine.
It seems that winning American Idol isn't necessarily a good thing. Can someone please tell me what happened to Reuben or that "Soul Patrol" guy? I digress. I'm extremely pleased with the outcome of these photos, I personally thought the Vogue photos didn't capture Jennifer's true beauty. Let's not even talk about the cover shot with her mouth wide open..Lawd have mercy!
Jennifer's scheduled to perform "I Love You I Do" on the night of the Oscar's, but rumors are circulating that she along with back up singers Beyonce and Anika Noni Rose will be singing I'm Not Going/And I Am Telling You. This is one rumor that I hope is true.
Meanwhile, the original Effie White Ms. Jennifer Holiday will be singing her signature song for E! during the Oscar pre-show . I love me some Jennifer Hudson but you've got to respect the woman who created the role. I've posted a little reminder of what Ms. Holiday is capable of just in case you've forgotten. Many thanks to O1lt.com for the photos. Enjoy!
