On Tuesday, actress/singer Jennifer Hudson attended the Michigan Avenue Magazine party at the House of Blues in Chicago. Marking this the second time former American Idol contestant has appeared as the publication’s cover girl.
The invitation-only event, titled “A Hudson Holiday,” required that all attendees bring a new unwrapped book or toy for donation to the Julian D. King Gift Foundation.
Before Jen’s performance, Hudson walked the red carpet with her sister, Julia, mother of Julian King. And Chicago Bear Israel Idonije also joined the festivities.
Strutting her now-famous svelte Weight Watchers figure in skyscraper Charlotte Olympia heels, Hudson performed a few hit songs from Whitney Houston, “How Will I Know” were she also sang Michael Jackson’s 80s’ hit “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough,” during which she invited audience members to dance with her. “Show me what you got,” she coaxed.
