"And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going"

In 2006, soon after her American Idol loss, Jennifer Hudson emerged as the powerhouse vocalist that portrayed Effie White in the film adaptation of Dreamgirls. She sang the production's signature song, "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going," and immediately became an R&B force to be reckoned with. Her rendition of the song originally sung by Jennifer Holliday won her an Oscar and put her on the map.
