ESSENCE Music Festival headliner Jennifer Hudson recently talked to the Daily Mail about success and motherhood

“He’s very much his own person, a little performer who loves to sing and dance,” Jennifer said of her son, David Otunga, Jr.

While being a mom is one of her greatest joys, the Oscar winner’s personal journey has also taught her a thing or two about pressing forward in tough times.

“Don’t block your blessings. Don’t let doubt stop you from getting where you want to be,” she advises. “Sometimes I think we hurt ourselves by being too aware of the challenges. It can be better not to know.”

Spoken like a winner.
