CNN reports:

(CNN) — Jennifer Hudson didn’t win a People’s Choice Award for a performance on Wednesday. But it was her emotional speech for a humanitarian award that highlighted the 2014 edition of the awards show.

Hudson accepted the favorite humanitarian award with her sister Julia for the foundation the pair started in the name of Julia’s son, Julian D. King, after his 2008 murder. The Hudson sisters’ mother and brother were also killed in the crime.

Jennifer Hudson said she was inspired by performers and educators she saw as a child. She wants to carry the message on to a new generation, she said, because that inspiration made a difference in her life.

“If they did it, then I can do it, too,” she said of the work.
