The story of Jennifer Kate Hudson is the living proof of how someone so invisible at the beginning can actually raise to stardom through hard work and determination. Starting her life in Chicago, Illinois, young Hudson who was born September 12, 1981 was lucky to be exposed to such a soulful city. She performed in the small church of her town as a choir solo singer due to the influence from her grand mother, Julia Hudson, who equally was a choir member. She graduated from Dunbar Vocational Career Academy in 1999, worked in Burger King for a while, and engaged in a Chicago's musical production "Big River" where she sang professionally. Soon her talent began to find its way to prominence by performing in Disney's Wonder cruise ship.
