DETROIT (WWJ) – Jennifer Hudson will bring her headlining “I Remember Me” tour presented by Weight Watchers to Detroit’s Fox Theatre on Thursday, July 21 at 8 pm. Tickets go on sale Saturday, April 30 at 10 am.
Hudson’s sophomore album, I Remember Me, debuted at #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 and R&B Albums charts, according to Nielson SoundScan.
Led by the album’s first single, “Where You At,” I Remember Me sold over 165,000 units and marks the Grammy and Academy Award winner’s second chart-topping album entry.
Hudson’s eponymous debut album entered at #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 and R&B Albums charts in 2008 and won a Grammy in 2009 for Best R&B Album.
This high chart debut coincided with the high ratings and rave reviews music journalists have bestowed I Remember Me including People Magazine’s 3 ½ stars (out of 4) and the New York Daily News 4 stars (out of 5).
USA Today’s 3 ½ stars (out of 4) review states “I Remember Me celebrates her heartwarming progress, and makes us look forward to the rest of her journey,” while Elle Magazine cites “The collection of personal and memorable songs showcases the Jennifer Hudson powerhouse that audiences adore.”
RollingStone.com proclaims “Hudson may be the most talented singer that American Idol has produced; she’s definitely the most powerful. Hudson’s a one woman-revival, with a voice so forceful it can roll back time.”
Dubbed “Ms. Iron Pipes” in Entertainment Weekly’s album review, Jennifer wowed national viewing audiences last week with her pipes during knockout performances of her hit single “Where You At” on Good Morning America, The View, 106 & Park, The Wendy Williams Show, Tonight Show with Jay Leno and her triumphant return on American Idol.
