People’s Choice Awards 2014: Jennifer Hudson to be Honored as Favorite Humanitarian!

By Josh Sorokach | 12:30 pm on January 7, 2014


Last week we asked you to speculate about the recipient of this year’s People’s Choice Award for Favorite Humanitarian, and today we can officially announce that the honoree is platinum-selling artist Jennifer Hudson! Hudson, a Grammy and Academy Award winner, will add the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Humanitarian honor — presented by Walgreens — to her ever-expanding list of accomplishments during the 2014 People’s Choice Awards telecast live from the Nokia Theater Wednesday night.

The eclectic star was chosen as this year’s recipient in recognition of her work with the Julian D. King Gift Foundation, an organization she formed in 2009 with her sister, Julia Hudson in honor of their nephew, Julian King. The foundation works to provide stability and positive experiences for children of all backgrounds so that they may grow to become productive, confident and happy adults, able to be positive influences on their communities, according to a release.

“Thank you for honoring me with the Favorite Humanitarian Award,” said Hudson in a statement. “My sister Julia and I were raised with the belief that helping others was always very important. I am so grateful that the People’s Choice Awards and Walgreens have come together in the same spirit. This spotlight will provide us with the opportunity to share all the amazing work being done by the Julian D. King Gift Foundation for children in the city of Chicago and around the United States.”

Hudson will accept the award at the show on Wednesday night.

The People’s Choice Awards will be broadcast live from the Nokia Theater in L.A Wednesday, January 8th at 9/8 central.
