Kornbread “The Snack” Jeté is wearing her heart on her sparkly sleeves!
The “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 14 star turned to a classic Jennifer Hudson track to let it all out during the War on the Catwalk tour.
“Drag. 37 shows. 37 Standing Ovations. 46 Days. I left this tour [emotionally] drained. Each show was my release. Every night tapping into this vulnerability,” Kornbread — who placed 12th on “Drag Race” — captioned a video posted on Instagram.

“I will always give my art 1000% and I do it for me. Hopeless romantic. So much love to give,” Kornbread continued in the Instagram caption.
Of course the TV star didn’t forget to give a shout-out to Jennifer, who performed the song in the 2006 musical drama “Dreamgirls,” leading to the first award of her EGOT!
“@iamjhud put her soul into this version!” Kornbread wrote.
Kornbread performed an emotional rendition of the hit tune while wearing a gorgeous sparkly black dress from designer Dymond Warren of D.Haleter, Los Angeles.
In 2014, Jenn shared the stage with fellow “Drag Race” star Latrice Royale.
Latrice introduced Jennifer ahead of a tribute to disco legend Gloria Gaynor.
“Such an honor getting to share the stage with Jennifer Hudson tonight at Fashion Rocks Live!!!” Latrice tweeted after Jennifer’s stunning performance of “I Will Survive.”
