Jennifer Hudson Signs With Clive Davis' Label

by at . Comments

Nobody wanted her first time around, after she finished a respectable seventh in Season 3 of American Idol, but now that she's starring in Dreamgirls and generating some serious Oscar buzz, Jennifer Hudson is a desirable commodity for record labels.

We've learned that she's just been inked by Arista, Clive Davis' original branch of the BMG realm he now commands.

DreamgirlsSaid Davis in a statement:

"Jennifer Hudson (right) is a vocal wonder, a tremendously gifted artist. Her extraordinary voice gives her a signature sound and distinguishes her from every singer on the horizon today."

Said Jennifer Hudson in a statement:

"Clive Davis is a legend, and I feel more than honored to be associated with him. Because of his vision and hands on approach, Arista already feels like home. I can't wait for us all to make beautiful music together."

We're looking forward to it, of course!
