Jennifer Hudson, a recording artist, actress, and spokesperson from the United States, is thought to be worth $18 million. Jennifer Hudson originally caught the public’s eye as a participant on the third season of the reality singing competition American Idol, placing seventh. She is most recognised for her role as Effie White in the 2006 film adaptation of the Broadway musical Dreamgirls.
Hudson, who was first heard singing in her church, was born Jennifer Kate Hudson in 1981 in Chicago, Illinois, in the United States. She then participated in a number of talent events and school musical productions before landing a part in a Chicago-area production of the musical Big River. She is still regarded as one of Idol’s greatest triumphs, garnering accolades for her work in Dreamgirls in 2006, including an Oscar, a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, and the SAG Award for Best Supporting Actress. She just agreed to serve as Weight Watchers’ spokesperson. Her follow-up album, due out in March 2011, will be her first since 2008’s platinum-certified debut.
