With bad weather in Chicago Monday and her flight canceled, Jennifer Hudson fretted at the thought of missing her performance at Tuesday's Pulitzer Prize awards ceremony to pay tribute to honoree Aretha Franklin. Then Hudson said she felt the spirit of the Queen of Soul -- who refused to fly but traveled by tour bus to concerts and events -- and drove nearly 13 hours to New York to make the luncheon.Franklin, who died last August at 76, was posthumously awarded the Pulitzer Prize Special Citation honor Tuesday, becoming the first individual woman to earn a special citation prize since the honor was first awarded in 1930 .Collaborator and close friend Clive Davis and long-time publicist Gwendolyn Quinn accepted the honor on behalf of Franklin's family.An Oscar and Grammy winner, Hudson will play Franklin in an upcoming biopic.
