Jennifer Hudson - Doing The Most

Let's talk about Jennifer Hudson. First let's discuss her performacne in Sex In the City. Now before we go any further, if you haven't seen the movie yet then you need to rush out and see it. The movie is great. And oh by the way, there are already talks about the sequel because the movie did much better at the box office than anticipated. I guess they underestimated the power of Carrie and the girls.

Now let's talk about Ms. Hudson. In the movie she plays Louise from St. Louis. She is a single girl in New York looking for love. Now it may sound corny but it worked for me. I loved her performance as the girl moving to the big city trying to find her place in this world.

Now let's talk about the songs she given us thus far. I won't even bring up her jaw dropping rendition of And I'm Telling You. I won't tell you it was good enough to make Jennifer Holiday raise an eyebrow. I'm not gonna tell you any of that at all. I'm only gonna talk about her new singles.
First there is song from the SITC soundtrack All Dressed Up In Love. This is one of those catchy head-bobbing tunes that'll have you prancing around the room without even realizing it. Then there is her first single from her upcoming solo project. The video/ single were released last week for Spotlight. Jennifer looks fabulous and sounds divine in the video.

But then we have the CD cover. Now come one on, was this really needed? Effie White would not be pleased with what they've done to Jennifer on the cover. Jennifer is naturally beautiful and does not this "makeover" to sell records. The people over at Jive Records are pulling stunts and shows. The digital slimming down of Jennifer isn't needed.

What do you think? Do you like the music she's done since Dreamgirls? And what do you think of this cover?
