1. “I’m Here” from the Color Purple soundtrack
Singing for Oprah and Paul McCartney seems petrifying, but Jennifer Hudson does a great job singing this empowering song from the Color Purple. She shows them she’s “beautiful and she’s here.”
I’m gonna take a deep breath/I’m gonna hold my head up/Gonna put my shoulders back/and look you straight in the eye/I’m gonna flirt with somebody as they walk by/I’m gonna sing out/sing out
We hear you, girl.
Don’t forget to come back right here to watch Jennifer Hudson Live on Letterman presented by AT&T-Rethink Possible on June 13th at 9 PM.
