JHud is Moving Forward

Jennifer Hudson is getting back into the swing of things:

Jennifer Hudson, who’s been in seclusion since the killings of her family members, is getting back to work. The singer is set to begin filming a video next week for her single, “If This Isn’t Love,” according to her label, J Records.

Hudson was due to film the clip in Los Angeles when her mother, Darnell Hudson Donerson, and brother, Jason Hudson, were discovered shot to death in their Chicago home on the city’s South Side on Oct. 24. The body of her nephew, 7-year-old Julian King, was found in a sport utility vehicle three days later.

Hudson’s estranged brother-in-law, William Balfour, who is married to Hudson’s sister Julia, has been charged in the slayings. Prosecutors have said Balfour was upset Julia had been dating another man. The star has thanked the public for their support since the tragedy, and last week issued a statement after she was nominated for four Grammy awards, including best R&B album for her self-titled debut. She has recently been featured in ads for the Gap, but those images were shot well before the murders, according to The Associated Press.

We gotta applaud Jennifer for trying to pick up the pieces after that heinous tragedy. Sometimes work can be a positive distraction. We wish her all the best.

    Yeah I’m really glad that she’s moving forward. My heart goes out 2 her as she continues 2 mourn especially with it being the holiday season and all. I don’t think I will EVER be able 2 wrap my mind around the grief she has 2 deal with particularly considering how close she was with her mom.

    And that wanna be thug that offed her mother, her brother and little nephew out of jealousy over Julia dating another man is the Ultimate Example of B**chAssedness. I hope his experience in prison is perpetually miserable and that he has 2 fight off rapists regularly.

    True Hudson fan here. I was concerned if this tragedy hampered the progress of her album. I was eagerly awaiting her next LP. I was hoping that is was going to be her duet with Fantasia.

    At any rate I know this isn’t going to be an easy road for Jennifer. I pray her family and career the best. I truly believe our people have it in their DNA to have the fortitude to rise like the phoenix in the midst of adversity.

    Go Jen!

  • Tasha

    I am SO proud of her. May god continue to bless her and the reset of her family. She is truly a God fearing woman to be able to bounce back after all that she went through. Good luck on those Grammy’s Jen, you deserve everything good thing you have coming to you. It’s your time!!

    Do yo thang J Hud

  • Magz

    i agree. hope she sings at the inauguration. hopefully this all makes her stronger somehow.

  • Gold red purple

    she deserves to sing at the inaugaration.

    Its better for her to keep herself busy and go back to music/acting, promote the album etc and then when thats all done take a break. Its tough though because the music and film indsutry are all about being in the public eye, if she takes time off her career may die out.

    I wish her the best, she seems like a lovely and humble person and has an amazing voice
