Oscar and Grammy winner Jennifer Hudson has partnered with MTV, Logo, W Hotels, and the Human Rights Campaign for "I Still Love You," her new video in support of LGBT equality.
The video tells the story of a father coming to grips with his son's big fat gay interracial wedding, leading him to hop in his pickup truck and drive to the ceremony at a W Hotel in Los Angeles. He arrives just in time to turn it out with JHud and a wedding party that includes model Shaun Ross, actress Leisha Hailey, drag queen Manila Luzon and model and LGBT activist Claudia Charriez.
Go head, daddy!
“I Still Love You” will help support Logo’s #All50 campaign, a platform for LGBT people and allies to stay up to date on the latest news, where they can also share personal stories in support of marriage equality leading up to the Supreme Court's pending decision on legal marriage for same-sex couples in all 50 states.
“The ‘I Still Love You’ music video and its uplifting message are especially timely as the country awaits the monumental Supreme Court decision about marriage equality later this month,” said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader, W Hotels Worldwide. “W Hotels has always been ‘out’ about our support of the LGBT community, and we’ve received incredible support and positive feedback since the launch of Turn It Up For Change."
“There couldn’t be a better time to release this video from my new album,” Jennifer Hudson added. “I owe a large part of my success to the LGBT community, who has embraced and supported me from early on in my career, and music continues to prove a powerful platform to help promote LGBT equality. I hope my video inspires everyone to keep fighting for fifty.”
Throughout the month of June, Logo will showcase marriage equality messages on-air, debut interviews with celebrities and LGBT advocates on the #All50 site, and invite viewers to share personal stories about their support for marriage equality using #All50.
With wedding season in full swing and marriage equality hopefully on the horizon, JHud's got the song of the season — not to be confused with the song of the summer. This isn't quite turnt up enough for that.
To celebrate the music video launch, Bravo TV personality Andy Cohen hosted an exclusive, intimate screening, and panel discussion focused on LGBT equality issues last night at W New York in Union Square. If you couldn't make the event, don't fret! Check out "I Still Love You" below:
