Jennifer Hudson Announced as Sixth Featured Speaker for the Audi Innovation Series
Earlier this week, Audi Canada was proud to host award-winning actor, musician, author, and philanthropist, Jennifer Hudson as its latest iconic speaker for the Audi Innovation Series.
The noted Canadian speaker series has built significant momentum in 2021 following its digital evolution and an insightful discussion with Jared Leto in May. The virtual event, which will be released on Audi Canada’s social media channels on August 25, 2021, was moderated by ET Canada’s Sangita Patel, and showcased how creativity and innovation has shaped the remarkable career of Ms. Hudson.
“We are so grateful to Ms. Hudson for bringing her experience and perspective to the sixth Audi Innovation Series,” said Vito Paladino, President at Audi Canada. “This next chapter of the Audi Innovation Series will continue to build on its digital transformation and bring conversations of innovation and progress to Canadians everywhere,” Paladino added.
Hudson, whose talents have taken her from the churches of Chicago to stages and screens around the world, takes the Audi Innovation Series stage following her touted portrayal of Aretha Franklin in the recently launched film, RESPECT — a role she was hand-picked for by the late singer. “My whole life is risk-taking, I trust my path and vision. No one knows your potential the way you do,” Hudson shared. “I’ve had incredible experiences because I stepped out on faith – you will always see me try. I think we’re all afraid to try, but it’s okay to be different.”
