Watch: Jennifer Hudson Celebrates Whitney Houston By Performing ‘One Moment In Time’ On Today Show

Sadly, the late, great Whitney Houston is no longer with us. However, her legacy is being celebrated with the release of ‘Whitney Houston Live: Her Greatest Performances’ - which hit stores this week.

Pieced together by the diva’s longtime mentor Clive Davis, the retrospective set – which we’ve had on replay here at TGJ – is earning rave reviews from critics.

Whitney, of course, is tragically not here to bless the masses with more showcases of her iconic voice, however Davis called on one of today’s most gifted vocalists, Jennifer Hudson, to help him pay homage on the Today Show this morning.

The Oscar and Grammy winner was drafted in to perform the classic Nippy cut ‘One Moment In Time’.

Watch her soar after the jump…

Queen of Soul…And Shade: Aretha Franklin Weighs In On Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj…& Barack Obama

As her newest album, ‘Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics,’ is currently reigning over the R&B charts, Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin is hot on the promo trail in its support.

With a campaign of guest appearances plagued with lol-worthy moments (i.e. interview glitches, Cissy Houston‘s lack of interest in memorizing words, etc.), it seems Franklin has no intentions on slowing the good times from rolling.  Case in point?  Aunt Re sat down with The Wall Street Journal recently to discuss her new project and, as always, was asked to weigh in on today’s top crop of talent.  Her answers were…umm…interesting to say the least.

Tuck in below to see how the R&B legend feels about the likes of Alicia Keys, Taylor Swift, and Nicki Minaj.  This, of course, came just days after interviewed her and quizzed her similarly.  Her comments on Beyonce and co. were…well…just as interesting. See what we mean below.

Bonus:  Did you miss Aretha weighing in on Cissy’s now meme-tastic performance on David Letterman?  Hear her thoughts on this as well:

Weigh In: Not One Album Released This Year Has Gone Platinum

Top Three Selling Albums of The Year Were All Released In 2013

thatgrapejuice collage Weigh In:  Not One Album Released This Year Has Gone Platinum

The year’s fourth quarter is being greeted with dismal news:  not one single album released this year has been certified platinum.

Indeed, despite at least 60 songs shifting over 1 million copies, their parent albums cannot proclaim such.  We thought things were bad last year when only five albums went platinum, led by Justin Timberlake‘s ’20/20 Experience’ (which had sold over 2 million copies by last year’s closing).  But, this year’s looking to be much worse.

To add insult to injury, 2014’s best selling album by a solo act is Beyonce‘s self titled fifth album…which was released in December 2013.

We’re waiting on Rihanna, Eminem, Nicki Minaj, and Taylor Swift to save the day.

Watch: Jennifer Hudson Blows The Roof Off With ‘And I Am Telling You’ At COS 2014

Jennifer Hudson‘s new album ‘JHUD’ may be off to a slow start, yet the Grammy and Oscar winning songstress isn’t letting that derail the promo push for the project.

The American Idol alum took to the stage at the Circle Of Sisters 2014 event yesterday at New York’s Madison Square Garden and ensured she delivered a showing that demanded attention.

Backed by a full band, the ‘Dreamgirls’ star performed the track that catapulted her to mainstream stardom ‘And I Am Telling You’.

It appears the song, which was first sung by Jennifer Holliday, is the gift that keeps giving. Because, just as it did upon her initial rendition in 2006, it potently reminds of the talent embedded in Hudson – regardless of sales.

Watch the epic showing below, where her performances of ‘Spotlight’ and new number ‘Bring Back The Music’ also await.
