Jennifer Hudson 

Jennifer Hudson may not have won on the third season of Fox's American Idol, but that didn't stop her from long-term success. She reemerged in the 2007 blockbuster Dreamgirls, where she showcased her Oscar-award winning acting chops and powerful voice. Hudson, like Johnson, began singing in church as a young girl.
