Jennifer Hudson is more than a powerful singer and actress. She’s a philanthropist, too, and the March of Dimes at their Celebration of Babies soiree in Beverly Hills recognized her work for families and childbirth health recently
The Dreamgirls star received the Grace Kelly Award for supporting mothers in giving their babies a healthy start on life. According to the March of Dimes, Hudson has championed children, women’s issues and poverty around the world.
“That’s everyone’s dream, is to go home with a happy, healthy baby,” Hudson told The Hollywood Report at the soiree. “Thankfully, I had a healthy, happy childbirth – but not everyone does.”
