Jennifer Hudson will be recognized for something other than her singing and acting skills at this year’s People’s Choice Awards.

The “Dreamgirls” star will receive the second annual Favorite Humanitarian award at this year’s ceremony, which airs live from the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Wednesday at 9 p.m. on CBS.

Hudson will receive the award, which is presented by Walgreens, for her work with the Julian D. King Gift Foundation. The Foundation, which Hudson formed with her sister Julia Hudson in honor of their slain nephew Julian King, works to provide stability and positive experiences for children of all backgrounds so that they may grow to become productive, confident and happy adults, able to be positive influences on their communities.

Hudson said that the award will bring a welcome spotlight to the Foundation.
