‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ Duet by Jennifer Hudson and John Legend

Published Mar 10, 2023

Jennifer Hudson and John Legend are talented and highly accomplished individuals. Both are members of the exclusive EGOT club (winners of Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony awards). The two entertainers joined forces to sing a classic and beloved song. 

Jennifer, after already excelling in everything else, now hosts a daytime talk show, The Jennifer Hudson Show. In early February, Jennifer celebrated her show, reaching an important milestone: 100 episodes!

For this occasion, Jennifer knew who she wanted to join her. Jennifer explains in the clip on YouTube that she asked “national treasure” and “music superstar” John Legend to help her celebrate.

After a few minutes of friendly banter, the two musicians head over to a piano on stage. John, after a brief explanation, begins playing the Simon and Garfunkel song “Bridge Over Troubled Water.”

John, who sits and plays the piano, kicks the song off and sings the first couple of lines of the song. Jennifer then takes the next two lines. Jennifer and John alternate until they reach the song’s recognizable chorus, which they sing together.

“Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water”

Like anyone who happens to watch the clip of the two musicians, the studio audience loves the impromptu duet. They applaud wildly at the conclusion of their wonderful performance. 

John and Jennifer are two of the most talented singers today. Both have been blessed with beautiful voices.

But the clip doesn’t end there! 

Right before the show and the clip ends, John surprises Jennifer. He wheels out a cake celebrating Jennifer’s 100th episode of her daytime talk show.

“What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also. I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also” (1 Corinthians 14:15).
