Jennifer Hudson stopped by ‘The Early Show’ on Tuesday (September 30) to sing ‘Spotlight’, the first single released off her self-titled debut album. “It’s been a long journey, but I’ve waited my whole life for this moment. It’s very exciting. It was a learning process and a whole new world once again,” the Oscar winner told co-host Julie Chen.
As for her experience on ‘American Idol’, the 27-year-old said, “It was an overall great experience. It was a learning process. I feel like if I didn’t go through that, I might not be able to deal with the industry now.” Watch the interview below.
