Jennifer Hudson celebrated humbly and with gratitude on Sunday after her Tony win earned her EGOT status.

It was clinched when she earned a producing Tony Award for “A Strange Loop,” which was chosen as best new musical.

After her historic Tony win — on top of her existing Emmy, Grammy and Oscar — the star convened backstage with well-wishers and bubbly. On Wednesday she posted a video snippet on Instagram of the magic moment.

“As I said when I won the Oscar, look what God can do,” Hudson said in the video. “Well he done did it again. That’s it!”

The frame then filled up with clinking glasses and appreciatory murmurs.

She is one of just 17 people who have won all four awards, and the second Black woman to do so. Preceding her is Whoopi Goldberg.

“Wow !!!,” Hudson captioned the video. “I am overwhelmed by all the outpouring of love and support that I am still receiving, and I’m still processing this whole new ground. What an honor ! Thank u all for being with me on this journey. I could not live this life without u.”
