J-Hud to Perform at Inauguration

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

In spite of all the hard-ships Jennifer Hudson had to endure during 08, the one ray of light had to be Barack Obama’s victory. What better reason, and forefront  for J-Hud to return to the game than his inauguration:

SCAR winner and former “American Idol” star Jennifer Hudson hasn’t been able to perform since her mother, sister and nephew were brutally murdered in October – but sources say she may be summoning up the strength for President-elect Barack Obama. “Organizers want Jennifer to sing ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ at the Inauguration on Jan. 20,” our source said. “They are talking to Jennifer about it. It would be the first time she performed since the murders. She is from Chicago and a huge Obama supporter.” Hudson sang the national anthem at the Democratic National Convention in Denver in August. Her rep didn’t return calls.

This inauguration will be meaningful and represent change, for J-Hud, and the whole country. It most definitely will be a tear-jerker.
