The Hollywood stars seem to be aligned for Jennifer Hudson. Access Hollywood has confirmed that the former “American Idol” contestant signed a record deal with Clive Davis’ J Records. Jennifer revealed her plans to Access this past Saturday at the “A Fine Romance” event in Hollywood. “My album, I’ll be recording my album! I just signed my record deal 2 weeks ago. So I’m starting on that in January.” At J Records, Ms. Hudson joins such music giants as Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, and Barry Manilow, but Jennifer will also feel right at home with her former “Idol”-mates as the J/Arista label houses many of her “Idol” counterparts like Carrie Underwood, Fantasia, Ruben Studdard and Taylor Hicks. The J Records label is part of the Sony BMG music conglomerate.
