According to the multi-talented 29-year-old, the quality of her voice and range is now nearly as extensive as it was during her teenage years. J-Hud made pivotal lifestyle changes after giving birth to her son David in 2009 -- dropping 80 pounds within months and becoming the face (and body) of WeightWatchers in the process. Hudson commented on how her life has changed with her new image in an interview for AOL Music admitting, "it's like being introduced to a whole new world in every single way you can imagine." "There's a whole lot more opportunities, people are more friendly," she adds.
In addition to increased media attention, endorsement deals and a new-found self-confidence, Hudson revealed on the British TV show 'Daybreak' how shedding the extra weight has improved her singing. "When I was in high school, I could do (sing) the whole piano. Now I've lost weight my voice is getting back to that same state," claims J-Hud.
