Academy Award-winning actress and Grammy Award-winning recording artist Jennifer Hudson has made a worldwide impact on music and in film. She won an Academy Award for her role as Effie in the film "Dreamgirls," which also garnered her a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a BAFTA and an NAACP Image Award. She went on to co-star in "Sex and the City" and "The Secret Life of Bees" for which she received an NAACP Image Award nomination. In 2008, her Arista Records debut album won a Grammy for Best R&B Album and three additional nominations, including Best Female R&B Vocal Performance, Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals and Best R&B Song. The RIAA Gold Certified album entered Billboard's Top 200 at No. 2 and marked the biggest first week sales for an R&B female entry since 2004. Recently, Hudson released her second album, "I Remember Me," and her current single, "Think Like A Man," with Ne-Yo (featuring Rick Ross), from the upcoming film of the same title, is currently on the Billboard Top 40.

British born Mark Ronson is internationally renowned as one of the world's most sought after DJs and Grammy-Award winning producers, as well as a brilliantly successful solo artist and band leader. He is famed for his work on Amy Winehouse's 2006 "Back To Black" and worked on Adele's "19," Kaiser Chiefs' "Off with their Heads," Ghostface Killah's "More Fish" and Black Lips' "Arabia Mountain." He released his debut solo album "Here Comes the Fuzz" in 2003 and his second in 2007, "Version," which went double platinum. Mark Ronson & The Business Intl (the alias he formed with his band) arrived in 2010 with their critically acclaimed debut, "Record Collection." He earned three Grammys in 2008 as Producer of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album. Ronson composed the music for the Royal Ballet at The Royal Opera House with Andrew Wyatt and has an integral role in the Grammy-endorsed Re:Generation project, released this month. Recently, he has been in the studio producing Rufus Wainwright's forthcoming album "Out of The Game," due in the spring, as well as Bruno Mars' upcoming album, and has been enlisted to create an anthem for the London 2012 Olympic Games for Coca Cola.
