Jennifer Hudson to headline PACER’s Annual Benefit on May 12

Minneapolis: Academy Award-winning actress and Grammy Award-winning singer Jennifer Hudson will headline PACER’s Annual Benefit on Saturday, May 12 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

Hudson, who currently stars as a coach on “The Voice,” first rose to fame as a contestant on “American Idol” more than 13 years ago. Since then, the vibrant performer has gained worldwide acclaim. She went on to win the Academy Award for her role in “Dreamgirls,” and has since won the Golden Globe, NAACP Image Award, BAFTA, and Screen Actors Guild Award, among others.

“We are delighted that Jennifer Hudson will perform at our Annual Benefit,” said Paula Goldberg, PACER’s Executive Director. “It’s thrilling to be able to offer our supporters such a special evening with an amazing star.”

Proceeds from the Annual Benefit support PACER’s programs for children with disabilities and their families, and PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. Tickets start at $75 and include the celebrated silent and live auctions.
