Jennifer Hudson’s affiliation with Weight Watchers moved to the next level as the songstress has opened her own Weight Watchers center in Chicago. After losing 80lbs as a spokeswoman for the nearly 50-year-old program, the Weight Watchers Jennifer Hudson Center is not only close to her home, but dear to her heart.

In honor of her slain nephew, Julian King, the weight-loss conglomerate has pledged to donate a portion of the center’s revenue to a foundation that Hudson co-founded in his name. During the grand opening, the Grammy winner shared, “I never thought I would make it to have my own center… I’m so honored to be here and see this day.” Speaking on her goal for the fledgling center, the trim singer said, “I love to target children, because that’s the thing that makes a difference. We hope to do the same thing and start here at home in Chicago with health, with education, with dreams.”
