Jennifer Hudson, who won an Academy Award for her role as Effie White in Dreamgirls, has received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Winnie Mandela star was joined by her industry friends Clive Davis and Raphael Sadiq, along with her Black Nativity co-star Jacob Latimore.

“I knew I would get emotional and I’m sure my mom is in heaven like ‘Jenny stop crying’ but now’s the time to cry mama, it is,” Hudson said. “This is an amazing honor as we all know and I did not see this coming. I’m so honored to be here with so many that I love and I feel as though we’re all a family.”

Hudson was honored with the 2,512th star on the Walk of Fame at 6262 Hollywood Blvd.
