    Jennifer Hudson: Dreaming of a Grammy Award

    With an Oscar and a Golden Globe trophy already on her shelf, Jennifer Hudson is aiming for the Triple Crown of awards: a Grammy in 2008.

    "I used to watch the Grammys and dream of winning one," she told PEOPLE at a New Year's Eve event headlined by the Dreamgirls star in Miami. "Maybe that can be next on my list."

    Guests at the Setai paid up to $60,000 per table to dine on Peking duck salad and roasted tenderloin by the poolside. Actor Dylan McDermott posed for pictures with guests before taking the stage to introduce Hudson as "one of the most talented people on the planet."

    Wearing a bright red Donna Karan sleeveless dress and more than $150,000 in jewelry specially designed by Rosalina Lydster, Hudson, 26, received an enthusiastic welcome from the crowd as she sang hits from Dreamgirls as well as "Happy Place," a song from her upcoming album.

    Despite Hudson's banner year in 2007, she believes 2008 will be even better for her. "I get to sing this year," she says. "I love acting and I hope I don't ever have to choose between acting and singing, but singing is what I worked 17 years to do. That's what I dreamed of. And I get to do it this year."

    Hudson, who also appears in the upcoming big-screen version of Sex and the City, adds: "I still don't exactly believe everything that has happened to me. Every day, it's like 'Thank you God.'"

    Jennifer Hudson to Release Debut Album in September

    Jennifer Hudson to Release Debut Album in September
    By Jane Ivory
    11:28, May 20th 2008

    Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson has proven to the world she has the voice and charisma needed, despite being booted off “American Idol,” and is now ready to release her debut album.

    Jennifer Hudson famously finished seventh on the third season of “American Idol” in 2004 and just as famously received an Academy Award for best supporting actress in 2006 for her portrayal of Effie White in “Dreamgirls.”

    The Oscar was the cherry on the cake for 26-year-old Hudson, who received an impressive array of awards for her aforementioned role, including a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild Award and a BAFTA Award.

    She has also pursued an acting career, most recently appearing as Carrie Bradshaw’s assistant, Louise, in “Sex and the City: The Movie,” which opens May 30 in the U. S.

    She will also appear in “Winged Creatures,” a film based on the novel by Roy Freirich, alongside Kate Beckinsale, Forest Whitaker, Guy Pearce and Dakota Fanning, and in “The Secret Life of Bees,” with Queen Latifah and Dakota Fanning.

    Hudson is enjoying a burgeoning acting career but she has not forgotten her first love, music.

    Come September, fans will be able to buy her self-titled debut album, which arrives via Arista Records. The first single, “Spotlight,” hits U.S. radio outlets in June, her label said on Monday.

    The song, about a difficult romantic relationship, was composed by R&B songwriter and vocalist Ne-Yo. He co-produced along with Norwegian production duo Stargate. Hudson also collaborated with Timbaland, Robin Thicke, the Underdogs, Diane Warren and Christopher “Tricky” Stewart on her album.

    A message on the singer’s MySpace posted May 17 addresses “all my friends here on MySpace that have supported me faithfully,” promising the album “will have a great variety” and will present “the many sides of Jennifer as an artist and vocalist.”

    “It shows sides of me i have always wanted to share and now the opportunity has finally arrived,” she continues, and gives thanks once again “for supporting me and for being so patient.”

    More music will be heard from Hudson with the release of the soundtrack to “Sex and the City: The Movie,” on May 27.

    She's performing tonight? Would they do that? Might be stealing the show with her powerful vocals.
