: Burger King Employee
Prior to belting her heart out on “American Idol” and picking up an Academy Award for her role in “Dreamgirls,” Jennifer Hudson worked in the fast food industry. Yep, that amazing voice could be heard taking orders at Burger King. “A long time ago, my only real job was working at Burger King,” Hudson told the U.K. publication The Voice. “I quit working there when I was like 17, 18, and I said, ‘You know what? Forget this!’ I decided I wanted to make my living through my gifts and talents, and I feel blessed that I’ve been able to do that.” A wise move indeed. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff
