NEW YORK (AP) -- Jennifer Hudson will have her "One Shining Moment."
The Grammy and Oscar winner will perform the song that plays each year at the end of the CBS broadcast of the NCAA men's basketball championship game.
"The song inspires you," Hudson said in a release. "It moves you. It motivates you and helps you reach that goal and that dream."
The network said Tuesday that Hudson will be the first woman to sing it. Teddy Pendergrass and Luther Vandross have performed previous renditions.
Hudson recorded the song in Los Angeles on Feb. 13. Her producer, Harvey Mason Jr., played for the Arizona team that reached the 1988 Final Four.
The tune by folk singer David Barrett has been a March Madness staple since 1987, played over highlights of the tournament.
Hudson, who won an Academy Award in 2007 for her supporting role in "Dreamgirls," performed at last year's Super Bowl.
