Singer Jennifer Hudson, who shot to fame as one of the finalists of the hit reality singing competition American Idol, is set to appear at the Ravinia Festival this weekend. Jennifer will be debuting at the Ravinia Festival by performing two gigs over the course of the weekend.
Hudson’s first performance is set to take place Saturday July 16 at 7:30pm and the second performance will come 24 hours later, when Jennifer takes to the stage on Sunday July 17 at 7:30pm. Both concerts will be opened by R&B singer Miguel.
Jennifer Hudson has come a long way from her American Idol days. Her self-titled debut album went on to win the Best R&B Album at the 2008 Grammys. Jennifer also appeared in the movie version of the musical Dreamgirls, where she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. Hudson released her latest album ‘I Remember Me’ this spring.
