Singer and actress Jennifer Hudson is giving back to her community! She hopes to show her commitment to a healthier lifestyle with the opening of a new weight loss center in Chicago.

The city native will open the Jennifer Hudson Weight Watchers Center today (Tuesday). Hudson dropped 80 pounds and is a Weight Watchers spokeswoman. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is expected to attend the event in the city’s Kenwood neighborhood on the South Side.

Weight Watchers says it’ll donate 10% of the center’s revenue to a foundation in honor of Hudson’s late nephew, Julian King. In October 2008, the bodies of Hudson’s mother and brother were found in the family’s home. King’s body was found days later in a vehicle. All three had been shot.

Hudson is known for her Oscar-winning role in “Dreamgirls.

Do you think folks will sign up?
