Using her talents for a good cause, Jennifer Hudson performed a dazzling set at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday night (October 9).
Decked out in a gorgeous purple frock, the “American Idol” alum happened to be partaking in the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education’s 15th Grand Slam for Children benefit concert.
Among the other stars lending a hand were Jason Mraz, Sir Elton John, Rob Thomas and AJ Green, who joined Miss Hudson onstage during her performance.
As for the cause, the Agassi event raises funds to help improve education for underprivileged youth in the Las Vegas community.
Voicing his thanks to Miss Hudson and everyone else who took part, Andre said in a statement, “We are honored that these international sensations are performing for this special 15th concert. The support received through the Foundation and from these renowned artists ultimately helps us make a difference in the lives of Agassi Prep students.”
Last week Jennifer Hudson was spotted at the two year anniversary celebration for Michigan Avenue magazine.
The “American Idol” alum looked lovely as she sang a few songs during the fancy fete in Chicago on October 5th.
Jennifer recently told press she can’t believe how much weight she’s lost and as a result she feels better than ever.
“I never knew I could get to this size and I don’t know how many weight loss attempts I’ve had. It’s a life changing process, you must exercise to maintain it and stay in that way.”
According to Hudson, her Weight Watchers weight loss plan is not necessarily a diet, but rather “a way of living that teaches you better skills.”
“For years I felt like I could never have ice cream, but I can eat ice cream occasionally now!” she said.
