Watch: John Fogerty, Jennifer Hudson and Allen Toussaint Record "Proud Mary"

John Fogerty's new duets album, Wrote a Song For Everyone, will be in stores on May 28. One of the duets from the album is with former American Idol and Academy Award Winner Jennifer Hudson along with Allen Toussaint and the Rebirth Jazz Band on Proud Mary.

From this short documentary, it seems that the album foregoes the CCR version of the song for a variation of the Ike and Tina Turner recording. All starts out slow until Toussaint and the Rebirth Jazz Band give it a decidedly New Orleans feel for the fast portion.
