Jennifer Hudson Dazzles With ‘Neverland’ at 2014 Tony Awards
Jennifer Hudson might not be starring in the upcoming ‘Peter Pan’-inspired musical ‘Finding Neverland,’ but that doesn’t mean the show’s producers couldn’t ask her to perform one of the songs, ‘Neverland,’ at the 2014 Tony Awards Sunday night (June 8).
Dressed in a sparkling silver floor-length gown, J-Hud starts the song with the Darling Boys, telling them about the wonders of Peter Pan and the place where you don’t have to grow up. Although she doesn’t have to do much acting, the ensemble around her play their parts well. She does interact with them a bit, especially Peter, but she’s clearly there for her vocals — not her Academy Award-winning acting chops.
While she does an amazing job on this song, it may be the only time we’ll ever see this magic happen. At least we’ll have the video above to take in her sweet melodies all the way to land of the Lost Boys, Captain Hook and Tinker Bell.
