It’s only been 9 years since the world was introduced to Chicago native, Jennifer Hudson, as she took over our TV screens and hearts every time she performed on ‘American Idol.’ Although she didn’t go home with the title during the third season of the long-running show, Hudson can say that she’s gone home with a lot more. With a Golden Globe award, Oscar, and Grammy under her belt, the talented beauty can now add another accomplishment: her very own star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.
Jennifer, who is now sporting a short pixie cut to match her maintained slimmer figure, has produced two solid albums as well as appeared in a number of films and she won’t be stopping anytime soon. Currently in the process of finishing up her third studio album, the wife and mother was overcome with joy about her honor. The honor, which usually comes after a lifelong dedication of outstanding work to an artists craft was given to the star at the mere age of 32.
With the word of a new album on the way and the holidays right around the corner, what better way to celebrate than to be honored with one of the highest of the highest awards? You go, girl!
