According to Entertainment Weekly, Jennifer Hudson hit the stage last night during the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival Opening Gala premiere of “Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of our Lives” at Radio City Music Hall with her rendition of the Whitney Houston classic “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.”
And Hudson did just that, as she took to the audience to find some temporary dance partners for the night.
The new documentary which charts the career of legendary record executive Davis takes a deep dive into the relationship between Davis and Houston.
Also performing during the evening’s concert were Barry Manilow, Earth, Wind, and Fire, Dionne Warwick, Carly Simon, and Aretha Franklin.
Hudson kicked off her set, following Barry Manilow, with a rousing rendition of Leonard Cohen’s classic “Hallelujah.”
