Jennifer Hudson to Perform at The Pearl at The Palms June 24
April 13, 2011 by VegasNews.com
This show has been postponed until a later date.
Hudson’s new record, I Remember Me, is a remarkable step forward for one of the biggest and most talked-about stars to emerge in recent years. The album is the follow-up to 2008’s Grammy-winning, gold-certified self-titled release from an artist who had already conquered the worlds of television with her success on American Idol and movies though her triumphant, Academy Award-winning performance in Dreamgirls.
Songs from the new release were written and produced by an all-star line-up of the biggest talents in music today, including R. Kelly, who is behind the album’s first hit single “Where You At,” which is already charting on The Billboard Hot 100. Other known names who worked on the album include Alicia Keys, Ne-Yo, Diane Warren and Salaam Remi, among others.
Last year, Hudson performed at the farewell concert by superstar country duo Brooks and Dunn. They asked her to sing a 2005 hit of theirs titled “Believe.” Though she wasn’t initially sure why they made this selection, she says that she “fell in love with the song that night—I had to have it on the album.” Produced by Harvey Mason, “Believe” ends the album on a soaring, emotional peak.
Described as “intense and intimate, joyous and danceable,” I Remember Me demonstrates the range and growth of Hudson as an artist. It’s a testament to music’s power to heal and to the continuing maturity of a singer who is practically a household name, but still in the early stages of her career.
Los Angeles native, performer and songwriter Miguel not only has amazing vocals Billboard magazine described as “offers both the sweetness of Babyface and the passion of R. Kelly,” but fans will know Miguel’s songwriting as well, having penned Asher Roth’s “His Dream,” Mary J. Blige and Musiq’s “If U Leave” and co-writing on Usher’s Raymond V Raymond album,
