Jennifer Hudson sang "To Dream the Impossible Dream'' in tribute to Muhammad Ali, who tonight received the President's Award at the NAACP Image Awards.
Ali, who has Parkinson's disease, sat silent in a chair under images of himself during his heyday. Ali's accomplishments in the boxing ring are matched by his record of social activism and humanitarian efforts, according to the NAACP.
The audience gave Hudson and Ali a standing ovation.
