Good luck charm keeps following Jennifer Hudson. The former American Idol contestant keeps striving high following her Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild winnings. Upon returning to hometown Chicago on Tuesday March 6th, the star was greeted with a quite an honor, her own day.
Chicago Mayor Richard Daley proclaimed that day as "Jennifer Hudson Day" to honor the beauty. "She's an inspiration to everyone who has a dream," Daley told hundreds of screaming fans gathered outside Chicago Theater. "People told her `You can't.' And she said `I can."'
Earlier that day Hudson visited her alma mater, Dunbar Vocational Career Academy. She set her Academy Award on the podium and told thousands of students who packed into the school's auditorium, "If you can see it, you can achieve it. Don't let anybody tell you what you can or cannot do."
