Jennifer Hudson Steps Into The Spotlight

After her critically-acclaimed performance in Dreamgirls, Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson makes her long-awaited foray into the music scene with Spotlight, her official first single from her self-titled debut album, set for release in September on Arista Records. Written and co-produced by Ne-Yo and produced by Stargate, Spotlight, which addresses insecurities within a relationship, is one of many stellar songs which showcases Hudson's amazing powerhouse vocals. Spotlight impacts radio June 9 and will be digitally available at iTunes on June 10.

"I'm beyond ecstatic about my new album," says Hudson. "I think people will be pleasantly surprised, because it shows a side of my work that no one has heard before. This album has a huge variety of sounds and one of my favorite songs is Spotlight because it has this great infectious groove. This is completely new territory for me and I can't wait for people to hear it."

In addition to her debut album, Hudson continues with her burgeoning acting career in the much-buzzed about New Line Cinema version of the HBO hit series Sex and the City, in theatres May 30. On October 17, Hudson returns to the silver screen in the film adaptation of Sue Monk Kidd's best-selling novel The Secret Life of Bees.
