courtesy of www.billboard.comJust days after bringing down the house at the BET Awards with her Prince tribute, Jennifer Hudson has some big news to share. After three albums with Arista/J Records and RCA, the Oscar-winning singer has signed an exclusive contract with Epic Records, according to an announcement from Epic Chairman and CEO L.A. Reid.
"Jennifer Hudson is the defining voice of this generation," Reid said. "Her award-winning presence on records, in film, and on stage establishes her as one of the premiere artists to emerge in this century. I'm enjoying collaborating with my friend and mentor Clive Davis on Jennifer’s first Epic album and excited for her fans to hear what we're up to... all will be revealed soon!"
As noted by Reid, he is co-executive producing the album with Sony Music Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Clive Davis, marking the first time the pair have worked together on a project in nearly 25 years. The last time they collaborated was on Whitney Houston's record-smashing 1992 soundtrack to The Bodyguard.
"I signed Jennifer in 2007 believing her to be the strongest candidate as the next generation's Aretha Franklin and Whitney Houston," Davis said. "She has become that, as LA and I excitingly reunite to capture Jennifer at her all time best." Hudson, who wowed the crowd on Sunday night at the BET Awards with her soaring rendition of Prince's "Purple Rain," said she was eager to get to work on the next phase of her career.
"I couldn’t be more excited to embark on this new chapter with two of the most prolific musical legends of this generation," she said. "There is no doubt that this is just the beginning of a very special collaboration and I know that the result will be something unforgettable. I am looking forward to the creative process and sharing new music very soon!”
After finishing seventh on the third season of American Idol in 2004, Hudson won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her portrayal of Effie White in the 2006 film adaptation of Dreamgirls and released her self-titled debut album in 2008. She followed up with 2011's I Remember Me and 2014's JHUD.

Jennifer Hudson has signed on to star in Adam Sandler's next Netflix movie, and the Oscar-winner will be showing off her musical chops once again.
The 90s-set project, called Sandy Wexler, stars Sandler as the titular character, a talent manager working in Los Angeles, who represents a group of eccentric clients on the fringes of show business. His single-minded devotion is put to the test when he falls in love with his newest client, a talented singer named Courtney Clarke (Hudson), who he discovers at an amusement park.
Steven Brill, who helmed Netflix’s other Sandler movie The Do-Over, is directing the film based on a script by Paul Sado, Dan Bulla and Sandler. Sandler is producing Sandy Wexler via his Happy Madison Productions banner along with Allen Covert. Barry Bernardi and Tim Herlihy will executive produce.
The film, part of Sandler's four-film deal with the streaming giant, will begin shooting in Los Angeles on August 2, and will premiere in all Netflix territories in 2017.
Two films from Sandler’s deal have already been released: The Ridiculous 6, which Netflix stated was the most-watched movie on the platform in its first 30 days of availability; and The Do-Over, which opened in May.
Singer-actress Hudson, who started off as a finalist on the third season of American Idol, won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for playing singer Effie White in 2006’s Dreamgirls. Her recent credits include Spike Lee’s Chi-Raq and 2013’s Black Nativity. The Grammy winner was also recently seen in HBO’s Confirmation with Kerry Washington, and made her Broadway debut in the revival of The Color Purple. Coming up, Hudson will also appear in NBC’s special Hairspray Live!, playing Motormouth Maybelle. She's repped by CAA, Azoff Music Management and Ziffren Brittenham
Brill previously helmed Little Nicky and Mr. Deeds. He's repped by UTA and Brillstein Entertainment.
I wouldnt say the best, but one of the best for sure. Sometimes i get surprised how smooth her vocals can be, cause she just loved to scream.SholasBoy wrote:
This is just outrageous, one of the best vocals I've EVER heard. As far as I'm concerned Jennifer Hudson has the greatest voice in music today.
