Oscar nominee Jennifer Hudson to celebrate her success at family church

For Oscar nominee Jennifer Hudson, there was no question where she would celebrate her success in the week leading up to the Academy Awards at her family's church.

"I don't do clubs. I don't drink. I don't smoke," Hudson told a boisterous crowd at Progressive Baptist Church on the city's South Side Monday night. "I'm not having no club party; I better have a praise party."

Hudson headlined a gospel concert named in her honor, "An Evening of Praise with Jennifer Hudson," accompanied by the acclaimed Soul Children of Chicago.

After winning a Golden Globe last month, Hudson is the favorite to take home the Oscar for best supporting actress for her performance in "Dreamgirls."

Many of the more than 3,000 people in the audience Monday were non-church members drawn in to hear Hudson and others sing.

"It's an exciting time because the city is so rich in the gospel tradition," said audience member Brenda Morgan. "It's a great night. We're so proud of Ms. Hudson."

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?
