Grammy and Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson will release her highly anticipated sophomore album ‘I Remember Me‘ on March 22 on Arista Records. The album’s first single, ‘Where You At,’ written and produced by R. Kelly, was released to radio in January (available on iTunes February 8th). The album title, I Remember Me, is based on a poem written by Jennifer and composed into a beautiful song co-written by Ryan Tedder that will be featured on the album. Additional writers and producers on the album include multi-award winners Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Rich Harrison, Ne-Yo and Stargate.
‘I Remember Me‘ is the follow up to Jennifer’s 2008 eponymous debut album, which featured the hit singles ‘Spotlight’ and ‘If This Isn’t Love.’ Jennifer Hudson debuted at #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums and R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts and won a Grammy in 2009 for Best R&B Album.
Jennifer Hudson will be honored at Essence Magazine‘s annual ‘Black Women in Hollywood‘. Along with Angela Bassett, Viola Davis and Loretta Devine, Jennifer will be recognized for inspiring positive images of black women around the world. The Fourth Annual Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon, honoring Hudson, Bassett, Devine and Davis, will take place February 24 during Oscar week in Hollywood.
