'Idol 3' finalist Jennifer Hudson honored as "Female Star of Tomorrow"

UPI News Service, 02/27/2006 

The ShoWest convention has chosen "American Idol" contestant Jennifer Hudson as its Female Star of Tomorrow.

Hudson has yet to be seen in any kind of acting role outside of the Ford Focus commercials that ran during the 2004 "American Idol" season, but ShoWest has tapped her for the prestigious award based on buzz surrounding her debut in the big screen adaptation of the Broadway hit, "Dreamgirls," The Hollywood Reporter said.

The Chicagoan is making her film debut alongside a team of entertainment heavyweights including Beyonce Knowles, Jamie Foxx and Eddie Murphy.

"In her motion picture debut, Hudson is sure to delight audiences with her portrayal of Effie in the upcoming big-screen version of the Tony Award-winning musical 'Dreamgirls,'" ShoWest's Mitch Neuhauser told The Reporter. "With her combination of acting and singing talent, Jennifer has the star qualities that promise her a bright future in Hollywood."

The ShoWest convention opens March 13 in Las Vegas with the awards ceremony scheduled March 16.
