Jennifer Hudson is taking her talents to daytime television. The singer has accomplished many things in her career. After first capturing the attention of many on season three of American Idol, the “Spotlight” artist won the hearts of audiences everywhere when she starred as Effie White in the 2006 film Dreamgirls, leading to her securing an Oscar for her riveting performance.
She recently became the youngest female and second Black woman to become an EGOT winner after receiving a Tony for A Strange Loop. Before that, she won two Grammys, one for her debut album in 2009 and another in 2017 for The Color Purple Broadway recording, and she received a Daytime Emmy as an executive producer for Baby Yaga in 2021. On the heels of her newly EGOT status, the multi-hyphenate shared the news that her talk show will premiere on her birthday.

The Respect actress also opened up about what fans can expect from the show in a statement.
"I have experienced so much in my life; I've seen the highest of the highs, the lowest of the lows, and just about everything in between but as my mother always told me, 'Once you think you've seen it all, just keep on living,'" she said.
"People from around the world have been a part of my journey from the beginning — twenty years ago — and I'm so ready to join their journey as we sit down and talk about the things that inspire and move us all," she continued. "I have always loved people and I cannot wait to connect on a deeper level and let audiences see the different sides of who I am, the human being, in return."
The Jennifer Hudson Show will premiere on the Fox network.
