It’s no secret Jennifer Hudson grew up in the Baptist church, so when she started passing the collection plate after a contestant would sing their face off on The Voice UK, church folks understood what was going on. But for those who don’t know J-Hud is explaining it.
In an interview with the Daily Star Jennifer Hudson explained how she got the collection plate and why she passes it around on the singing show.
“A fan gave it to me in America. She said every time I sing, I take everyone to church — and gave me a collection plate,” Hudson revealed. “I said I would take it with me to The Voice UK. In church, we take up a collection after the choir sings.”
“So if the acts have sung exceptionally well, I feel the need to get up and take a collection from the audience,” she said. “Of course, any money collected will go to charity.”
There you have it!
