Amazing Cover: "Simply Beautiful" (Jennifer Hudson)

Jennifer Hudson is hands down one of the best vocalists recording today and while her last album JHUD didn't make as much of an impact on the charts as her vocal talents deserve, there is no denying the power of her voice.

With that said, earlier this week, CBS aired the telecast of the 37th Annual Kennedy Center Honors and Jennifer Hudson performed a stirring rendition of the Al Green classic "Simply Beautiful" which truly has me wondering why she hasn't recorded a covers album in a similar fashion that Luther Vandross did with Songs.

Maybe it's too early in her career for Jennifer to release a covers album, but her voice is one of a few that can really handle and reinterpret some of the great classic in my opinion and I hope that one day she will.

Either way, take a few minutes to relish in Jennifer's sublime cover of Al Green's "Simply Beautiful" below and Enjoy!
