Grammy and Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson will perform “One Shining Moment, which is the song that plays annually at the end of the NCAA men’s basketball championship game. The tune by folk singer David Barrett has been a March Madness staple since 1987 and is played over highlights of the tournament. Hudson will be the first woman to sing it. Teddy Pendergrass and Luther Vandross previously performed the song.
“The song inspires you,” Hudson said in a release. “It moves you. It motivates you and helps you reach that goal and that dream.”
