Jennifer Hudson Performs ‘Where You At’ on ‘Good Morning America’
This morning, Jennifer Hudson kicked off the ‘Good Morning America’ Spring Concert Series with a performance of her brand new song ‘Where You At.’ The song appears on Hudson’s latest studio album, ‘I Remember Me,’ which will be released on March 22.
‘Where You At’ is a slow tempo, soulful track that highlights Hudson’s powerful vocals. During her performance, Hudson was joined by a full backing band and a trio of male and female backup singers. The song has a gospel feeling that is prevalent not only in the music, but also in the quality of Hudson’s vocal arrangement. The song’s pained and heartfelt lyrics deal with a lover who has strayed.
“Now you said you go to church / Stop slanging, find a real job, and go to work / And you say you stay out of the streets / And spend more time with me / Take away my doubts and fears and fulfill my dreams / You said you’d be that shoulder for my eyes to cry on / Said you would be that one that I could depend on,” Hudson sings in the first verse.
As she and her group of backup singers reach that last chorus of “where you at’s,” Hudson shows off her vocal range as she belts out a series of goosebump-inducing notes, switching between a strong, high octave to a delicate, soft sound.
Before her performance, Hudson was interviewed by host Robin Roberts about her weight loss, being a mother, and the Grammy tribute to Aretha Franklin. ‘Where You At’ is the lead single off of Hudson’s sophomore album.
