Fans of Jennifer Hudson have been left outraged after the singer/actress pulled out of a concert in Canada.
The Spotlight hitmaker was due to play at the Ottawa Bluesfest on Wednesday but she cancelled her slot to work on a movie project.

Organisers have refused to give ticket-holders a refund, prompting fury from Hudson’s devotees.

Beverley Relfe tells the Ottawa Citizen, “I wanted to see Jennifer Hudson. I’m not interested in the rest of it because it’s all people I don’t know… There’s going to be a lot of people (fans) who don’t know she’s not coming.”

Bluesfest executive director Mark Monahan explains, “She unfortunately had a movie offer and couldn’t make it… It’s unfortunate, but we have like 250 acts, some of them do cancel for whatever reason.”

Rockers My Morning Jacket are due to play in Hudson’s place.
