| Over the weekend Jennifer Hudson performed at House Of Blues in Anaheim/Downtown Disney and Divas Simply Singing. I put up an advertisement about the Gay Days event a while ago but the Divas Simply Singing was last minute. Divas Simply Singing was hosted by Sheryl Lee Ralph (left, the original Deena) and the event benefits the AIDS Healthcare Foundation and Women Alive in 2006. This event features a host of the most talented women in the entertainment business united in a benefit concert to continue the battle against HIV/AIDS. Jennifer performed four songs at both events including "One Night Only" and "Dreamgirls". Hopefully, I'll get pictures soon. Apparently the theatrical trailer for DREAMGIRLS was also shown at these events. One of the attendees of Gay Days described the trailer, spoiler alert!|
"Anyway another cool part was that they premiered the full theatrical TRAILER! We got to see it before anyone else cuz it's not out until Friday in theatres. OMGOSH you guys, it starts REALLY dramatic and you can't tell what it's about, then it goes into James Thunder Early doing a number, then it goes in to the Dreams making their debut in the Crystal Room, and then of course we finally get a sneak peak at JUST THE AUDIO of "And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going!" The crowd went CRAZY just to hear the first lyric in the clip (I forget which part), and then of course the editing gets really dramatic to match up with the "and you...and you...and you..." and everyone like had a collective orgasm, it was AMAZING. Already from just a few of the words in that song, JHud has TOTALLY put her own interpretation on those lyrics, they are totally well acted. But then of course she goes powerhouse too. LOVE IT!"
