“I remember being in the studio with my producer working on my sophomore album, and he said, ‘Your voice is a whole lot more clear!’ It’s gotten a little more powerful since I lost the weight.”

 

Jennifer Hudson on the effect her dramatic weight loss had on her singing voice. We wondered, having heard that some opera singers struggle with vocal power when they slim down, so asked her when we caught up with her last week at the Grammys on the Hill dinner. Didn’t have room for it in that story, though: Jennifer Hudson, one of the good ones, honored at ‘Grammys on the Hill’, 4/18/13
