LL Cool J presented this award to her and he said she was a “incredibly gifted artist” who “turned a family tragedy into a triumph for children in need.”. When Jennifer received the award she proudly brought her sister up with her. “I have to start off saying the same thing I said when I won my Oscar — look what God can do!” Jennifer stated. “My mother always taught us that without family you have nothing, and whether you know it or not all are family, and what happens to the other happens to us, so it’s very important to make a difference.” “It’s one thing to be a celebrity and have power … but it means nothing if we’re not helping someone else. It also feels good to see positivity acknowledged,” she added. Jennifer Hudson is really making a difference in many children’s lives and she really deserved this humanitarian award.
