Jennifer Hudson just put a soulful spin on a classic lullaby for Pampers for little babies around the world. Get the deets inside and find out who’s on her summer playlist….
Jennifer Hudson, who is pictured rocking a sheer star-printed Equipment blouse after her "Good Morning America" appearance today, spoke with The BoomBox about the Pampers project. The mom of little David, Jr. recreated "Brahms’ Lullaby" for the diaper company and the track will be available as a free download on the Pampers Facebook page.
The company is also donating $100,000 to the Julian D. King Gift Foundation, the charity Jenny and her sister Julia created in honor of her slain nephew.
She described her recording saying,
"The sweetest, lovable, loving and soothing and happy all in one song. I wanted it to feel good, too. Sometimes lullabies kind of feel like Christmas songs. I still want to keep that same spirit, still where it’s like soothing. That song where you can just play, because when my baby was born, I would play jazz music and light candles and hold him around the house until he would fall asleep. And I want to bottle it all up into this and have that moment where you have a special moment with your child but still when that song ends, that baby’s asleep. That’s the little gift and the treat that the moms get. Like, "Whew, I get a break" [laughs]."
She added that being a mom herself definitely helped:
"I’m sure other moms will get that, that bond, that specialness, whether you sing or not, that you can hum to your child, that moment. When my baby was first born, like now I can’t sleep without him. When I’m away from him, I can’t sleep because he’s not here. So when he was a baby in the middle of the night, nobody’s getting up but mom. I don’t care if you have a nanny or not, only mom is getting up in the middle of the night. But those are the moments I cherish the most, and that to me is what "Lullaby" gives, that moment."
She later revealed that Whitney Houston’s "I Want To Dance With Somebody," "Domino" by Jessie J. and Drake & Rihanna’s "Take Care" are high on her Summer playlist. Loves it.
