THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES

JENNIFER HUDSON comes from humble beginnings singing in a small Chicago church where week after week she brought the congregation to its feet with her soul-stirring performances.

Hudson blossomed appearing in dozens of talent shows and musical productions during her grammar and high school years. After her first professional role in a local production of "Big River,” Hudson showcased her four-octave range and charmed thousands of vacationers as a featured vocalist on the Disney Wonder cruise ship. In 2004, she wowed millions of television viewers during season three of the wildly popular Fox series "American Idol,” where she captured the hearts of American audiences everywhere.

Her breakout film performance came with her starring role in DREAMGIRLS for which she received an Academy-Award, Golden Globe, SAG, BAFTA and NAACP Image Award and Broadcast Film Critics Association Award. She was also honored by the National Board of Review and was named "Entertainer of the Year” at the Soul Train Awards. In addition, she received three BET Awards nominations including Best Actress, Best Female R&B Artist and Best New Artist.

She will release her highly anticipated debut album with Clive Davis for Arista records on September 30, 2008. She recently co starred in SEX AND THE CITY: THE MOVIE, joining the hit television series' original cast of Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristen Davis and WINGED CREATURES whose remarkable cast includes Forest Whitaker, Kate Beckinsale, Dakota Fanning, Guy Pearce and Jackie Earle Hayley.

Hudson attributes her vocal ability to her late grandmother, Julia Kate Hudson, a longtime choir member.
