With a line-up that already boasts the likes of Brandy and talent show alums Leona Lewis, Jordin Sparks, and Adam Lambert, news has surfaced another talent-show graduate’s name has been added to the mix – Jennifer Hudson. The ‘Spotlight’ songstress joins a list of ‘major’ singing stars tapped to mentor ‘minors’ on their quest for musical stardom.
Debra Byrd, resident vocal coach and mentor on the show, spoke highly of Hudson, stating:
“These kids wanted to sing for her, because they just loved her so much. She was able to bring to these kids who look up to her this great presence, this great energy and a wealth of information.”
