New Music: Jennifer Hudson – ‘Bleed for Love’

Winnie Mandela

Not only does Jennifer Hudson star as Winnie Mandela in the upcoming biopic, she also lends her powerful voice to the soundtrack. The Oscar winner pours her heart out on “Bleed for Love” featuring South Africa’s Soweto Gospel Choir. The big ballad was written by Diane Warren and produced by Harvey Mason Jr., Laurent Eyquem, and David Franco.

“‘Bleed for Love’ has such an incredible and meaningful message about the power of love and the extension of the human heart,” said Hudson. “Diane wrote a beautiful song and it was an honor to work with her and the rest of the team to create this powerful piece of music.”

The Winnie Mandela soundtrack is available now, while the film hits theaters on Sept. 6.

Listen to J-Hud deliver chills with her stirring song.

    Jennifer Hudson is a powerhouse vocalist goddess!!! Diane Warren written a very well beautiful song (as she always does) and Harvey Mason Jr. produced a very well written beautiful song!!! Also, the South African Soweto Gospel Choir did an amazing job as well. I cannot wait to see the “Winnie Mandela” movie, I just know Jennifer Hudson and Terrence Howard will do a good job at portraying Nelson and Winnie… R.I.P. Winnie Mandela!!!

    @Free Spirit, Umm. She’s not dead. This movie was supposed to come out 2 years ago and when Winnie got word, she was not too thrilled with Ms. Hudson. Jennifer didn’t contact her or even speak with her about her upcoming portrayal.

    @@SLICKERTHANSLY, I do. I came from Winnie mouth. She thought it was disrespectful for Jennifer to play her without consulting her. You can look it up.

    @rap3, My apologies to Winnie Mandela. Stupid media blogs reported false information and my stupidity for not looking more into it. I, also heard about her not being to happy about Jennifer portraying her because of her weight (being to thin) and she also had another actress in my mind.
