Jennifer Hudson came into public consciousness when she auditioned for American Idol in its third season. Born on September 12, 1981, she is a Virgo. She is now not only a singer, but an award-winning actress and spokesperson. Like her Zodiac, Hudson is a hard-worker with her eye set intently on her goal.
Virgos are unstoppable. They are meticulous workers who have a keen eye for detail, almost to a point that they can be perfectionists. They have a set standard for themselves and this is what they aim to achieve, no matter what public consensus may deem. As friends, they are reliable and trustworthy. Although a little self-conscious, they quickly warm up to those that they feel comfortable with.
Hudson, born in Chicago, started her dream way back when she was seven and singin for her church choir. Her big influences included Patti LaBelle, Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin. While on a singing stint in the Disney Cruise Lines, she auditioned for the third season of American Idol in Atlanta, Georgia. While she impressed the judges immensely, she struggled to get noticed on the show. Despite getting praises for her rendition of Barry Manilow’s “Weekend n New England”, she was eliminated in the same week of the show, failing to get the title. However, in May 2010 the Los Angeles Times declared her the third best American Idol contestant.
In 2010, Hudson became the spokesperson for Weight Watchers after having lost more than 56 pounds using the program. With their qualities, they are suited for a vast array of occupations. Hudson won a Grammy for her album for her album Jennifer Hudson and an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Dreamgirls.
Being a Virgo, Hudson is considerably charming and affectionate in love. She dated fellow Chicago native James Payton in 1999. The couple separated in 2007. After a while, she began dating sometime actor David Otunga and became engaged on September 2008, on her 27th birthday. On August 2009, she gave birth to their first son, who they named David Daniel Otunga, Jr.
In the face of adversity, they may conceal their emotion and hide away from the world. This is not to say that they are always in denial. In fact, they are well spoken, wise and prudent in judgment. On October 2008, Hudson’s mother and brother were shot to death inside her sister’s Chicago home. Hudson refrained from issuing a public statement that will affect the investigation. The police indicted Hudson’s sister’s estranged husband William Balfour with the murders.
