Jennifer Hudson To Sing Whitney Houston Tribute At Tonights Grammy Awards

Jennifer Husdon has been invited by The Grammy Awards to sing a special tribute  to honor Whitney Houston who was tragically lost to us this weekend at the Grammy Awards tonight. 

She’s a good friend of the Grammys,” [said Ken Ehrlich, executive producer of the Grammy Awards]. “She’s had some very significant appearances on the show. It felt right to ask to her to come and help us honor Whitney, which she will do musically.”

This will be the 30-year-old Hudson’s third performance at the Grammys. She received a standing ovation for her moving rendition of “You Pulled Me Through” in 2009, in what was one of her first performances after the murder of her mother and brother. That same year, Houston presented Hudson with her Grammy for Best R&B Album. In 2011, Hudson joined Christina Aguilera, Florence Welch, Martina McBride and Yolanda Adams onstage to pay tribute to Aretha Franklin.

Whitney presented Jennifer with her first Grammy in 2009.
