Jennifer Hudson Asked to Perform Whitney Houston Tribute at Grammys

Truth rating: 10


Jennifer Hudson has been asked to perform a Whitney Houston tribute at the Grammys on Sunday.

Executive producer Ken Erlich says the show plans to honor the late singer and multi-Grammy winner just one day after her death.

“We’re very saddened, and we don’t want to rush into anything that wouldn’t be respectful,” he told CNN.

He added, “I’ve asked Jennifer Hudson to come, and we’re really at this moment talking about what she’s going to do. It’s going to be something respectful. It’s not going to be a full-blown tribute, that’s too early and it’s too fresh at this moment.”

“It’s going to be something respectful to Whitney’s memory. Knowing Whitney like I did, she was a great artist and a great performer, and she knew the importance of thrilling an audience, and that’s what we plan to do.”
