SWACS: Jennifer Hudson — Alex Taylor Lessons

This week’s Singer Who Actually Can Sing is a slam dunk to write about. Jennifer Hudson has without a doubt one of the greatest voices of all time. Yet, for some reason, she still seems to be underrated. It’s hard to point to a reason why she isn’t more popular (when’s the last time you heard a Jennifer Hudson song on the radio?), it goes to show you that unprecedented talent isn’t a one-way ticket to all-time success if you don’t have luck to go with it (though Jennifer Hudson has been incredibly successful). It’s hard to quantify talents like this, but it’s worth taking a broad look at some of her great performances to see what she does well that we can apply to our own performance practice.
