Many of you may not know the name Harry Hudson, but it’s definitely one to remember.
Based in L.A. (but born in New Jersey), Harry Hudson is a 21 year-old up-and-coming alt/R&B singer. If you frequent gossip blogs, you may know that he’s a close friend of Kendall and Kylie Jenner. But there’s so much more to Harry than famous friends.
His career really started to buzz in 2013 when his song “World Is Gone” reached #1 on HypeMachine. In fact, he had meetings with the same exec who discovered/signed Lady Gaga. However, the very next day, Harry was admitted into the hospital for shortness of breath, and was later diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma disease, a cancer that originates from white blood cells. So in 2013, Harry put his music career on hold to battle life itself.

After 7 months of chemotherapy and recovery, Harry beat cancer in 2014, and has been cancer-free ever since. Now, Harry’s back to his music, and he’s starting with his new EP, The Treatment (Side A). Taken from the EP is “It IS What It Is.” The song itself is very personal, with some real lyrics about life & death, love & hate, and more. Check out the video below:
