It seems that just about everything JHud touches turns to gold. First, it was her Oscar-worthy role in Dreamgirls. Then it was her Grammy-award winning debut album. Now it is Weight Watchers.

If you’re single and looking, take note. Lamman even recommends a few places to find brothers including the aforementioned theatre company and the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE). He emceed a gala for the latter recently and happens to enjoy the company of mathematicians, engineers and scientists.
