Jennifer Hudson Grammys
February 12, 2012 by staff
Jennifer Hudson Grammys, Jennifer Hudson will pay tribute to the late Whitney Houston at Sunday’s Grammy Awards, producers for the telecast announced late Saturday.
“We are all pretty devastated. It hit us pretty hard,” Grammy Awards executive producer Ken Ehrlich said in an interview that was fed to CBS affiliates Saturday. “A lot of us who worked on the show worked with her a number of times, so it’s a very sad day for us and it’s going to be tough to recover from.”
Ehrlich said many received news of Houston’s death during rehearsal for Sunday’s ceremony. However, he said the show will go on – now with a tribute planned for Houston by singer-actress Jennifer Hudson.
“She’s a good friend of the Grammys,” Ehrlich said. “She’s had some very significant appearances on the show. It felt right to ask to her to come and help us honor Whitney, which she will do musically.”
This will be the 30-year-old Hudson’s third performance at the Grammys. She received a standing ovation for her moving rendition of “You Pulled Me Through” in 2009, in what was one of her first performances after the murder of her mother and brother. That same year, Houston presented Hudson with her Grammy for Best R&B Album. In 2011, Hudson joined Christina Aguilera, Florence Welch, Martina McBride and Yolanda Adams onstage to pay tribute to Aretha Franklin.
