Jennifer Hudson to Receive 2016 March of Dimes Grace Kelly Award


Frank Micelotta/FOXJennifer Hudson will soon have another prestigious award to add to her resume. 

The Grammy and Oscar winning recording artist will receive the 2016 March of Dimes Grace Kelly Award this December, the organization announced Friday.

The award will be presented to Hudson at the sixth annual Celebration of Babies: A Hollywood Luncheon at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles.  

“It’s such an honor to be recognized with the March of Dimes Grace Kelly Award. Have health and happy babies is every mother’s wish. But in the United States, premature birth is the number one cause of death of babies. I’m proud to support March of Dimes in their ongoing commitment,”  Hudson said in a statement.

The March of Dimes Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting premature births and bringing health education, programs and prenatal care to expectant mothers.  

The Grace Kelly Award “is given to a celebrity parent who shares March of Dimes’ commitment to helping families and giving all babies the healthiest start in life.”
