Having already taken to the big screen with a role in the film "Dreamgirls," Hudson is set to launch her musical career by signing with Arista and will take to the studio next year to record her first album, a news release from the label said.

"Jennifer is a vocal wonder, a tremendously gifted artist," Arista founder Clive Davis said. "Her extraordinary voice gives her a signature sound and distinguishes her from every singer on the horizon today. Jennifer is a very exciting new addition to the Arista family."

The label has a history of producing successful female singers such as Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin.

"Clive Davis is a legend and I feel more than honored to be associated with him," Hudson said of her decision.
