Oscar winning singer and actress Jennifer Hudson celebrated her Michigan Avenue Magazine cover issue for the glossy’s second year anniversary in her hometown of Chicago, Illinois, on Tuesday.

While at the festivities, Hudson took the stage to perform “I Will Always Love You,” a classic penned by Country music star Dolly Parton and made one of the best selling singles ever by R&B diva Whitney Houston.

Giving the tune her own spin, Hudson delivered a stirring performance, nearly comparable to Houston. We felt chills here at the office, and it’s not the air conditioner!

The 29-year-old starlet has been quite the busy chick. Earlier this year Hudson became the spokeswoman for Weight Watchers and lost a whopping 56 pounds.

Sure not to leave her Oscar fever behind, the actress recently wrapped production on “Winnie,” a biopic starring Hudson as activist Winnie Mandela. The film promises to portray Mandela in the same light as her more revered former husband, played by Terrance Howard.

Looks like things couldn’t be more blissful for the “American Idol” alum.
