You’ve probably heard the NBC show Smash nabbed powerhouse singer Jennifer Hudson as a guest star on the upcoming season. She plays Veronica “Ronnie” Moore, and it’s not her acting chops we’re looking forward to, but that incredible voice!
And, composers of the hit show aren’t letting such a big talent go to waste. Executive producers Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman made sure Hudson’s character would have an original song to sing on the fourth episode of the show. “I Can’t Let Go” was taped during one of Husdon’s televised concerts.
Characters from the show can be seen in the clip, with Katherine McPhee (Karen) and Megan Hilty (Ivy) singing backup to the Oscar winner and special member connected to Hudson’s character is in the audience.
Season 2 doesn’t start until Tuesday, February 5th at 9/8c, but you can catch an exclusive clip of Hudson’s new song below!
