The Recording Academy announced Monday its 2013 GRAMMYs on the Hill award recipient will be GRAMMY and Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson. Hudson will be celebrated April 17 at a dinner and ceremony in Washington, D.C., at the The Hamilton.
“We are elated to recognize Jennifer Hudson as not only a gifted musician and actress but as an extraordinary humanitarian who has selflessly contributed her time and talent to numerous worthwhile causes,” said Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow. “She is one of the industry’s most enduring, giving and gifted women, and we are privileged to be honoring her artistry, her commitment, and her generosity.”
The GRAMMYs on the Hill event will showcase special guest performers and presenters for an eclectic night of music and politics. On April 18 musicians and music executives will seek to find harmony in Congress when they lobby the Hill for pro-music policies at the group’s annual advocacy day.
