Jennifer Hudson becomes second black woman to join EGOT club

Entertainer Jennifer Hudson made history on Sunday night by becoming the second black woman to join the exclusive EGOT club.

Hudson now joins Whoopi Goldberg and 15 other people who have secured wins in all four of America's main show business awards - Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony awards. 

The actress and singer won a Tony Award on Sunday night as producer of A Strange Loop, which won best musical.

The 40-year-old won an Oscar in 2006 for the film Dreamgirls.

She also has two Grammys and picked up a Daytime Emmy last year as an executive producer of the interactive animation Baba Yaga.
