Jennifer Hudson Recording ‘Original Music’ For ‘Smash,’ Plus BTS Video

Jennifer Hudson is giving everything she’s got and enjoying the process on the forthcoming season of “Smash.”
While she considers the series “a huge challenge,” Hudson is doing something familiar and maybe a little less challenging — recording original music.
“I’m having a ball recording all of the original music,” Hudson says in video below. “You’re constantly creating new things on so many different levels. One minute you’re in the studio, the next second you’re doing choreography, the next second you’re acting.”
The Oscar and Grammy winner portrays Veronica Moore, an award-winning Broadway diva that just happens to influence some of the characters, like Karen, on “Smash.” If you look closely in “Behind The Scenes” video below, you will also spot Sheryl Lee Ralph acting alongside Jennifer Hudson.
