Both Jennifer Hudson and LL Cool J have achieved amazing success in their music careers, but neither of them have forgotten their roots. They’ve contributed to the communities where they grew up, which led us to honor them at this year’s Do Something! Awards.
In the clip above, Jennifer Hudson describes the foundation named for her nephew. She and her sister provide school supplies and holiday gifts to kids in need, to make sure children in Chicago have the tools to succeed.
LL Cool J is humbled that he’s being recognized not just for his talent, but his altruism and humanity. Watch him talk about what the honor means to him.
