Written by: Kay Montgomery – April 16th, 2020 11:12pm PT


Oprah Winfrey is returning to the small screen for Apple Plus TV in a series of shows aimed at educating the public on Covid 19. In the daily series the philanthropist brings together celebrities, lauded doctors, scientists, politicians, and reporters to bring us the latest in response to the pandemic as well as ways to stay safe and inspire hope. This week she highlighted the particular disproportionate effect the virus was wreaking on African American communities across America. 

“This is a time when we need to be lifted. We need to be comforted and your voice is one that can do it.”

That’s what Oprah proclaimed as Jennifer Hudson prepared to perform an original song meant to release tension and offer hope to the African American community via video call from her home in Chicago.


Oprah listened along, swaying and bowing her head to J. Hud’s soulful sound and seemed to meditate as she earlier remarked that we all have to be “prayed up”.
