Jennifer Hudson Prepares Grammy Performance
The 27-year-old former American Idol contestant will deliver the National Anthem at the Super Bowl on Feb. 1, then sing at the MusiCares Person of the Year Gala Feb. 6 and at the Grammys two days later.
These will be the first performances of Jennifer since the brutal murders of her mother, brother and nephew.
“So much has happened, but she’s ready,” a source tells People. “It’s a new year, she’s excited about performing again. She knew it was time. Fans can expect the Jennifer they’ve come to love. She just really loves to perform; it’s who she is, it’s what she does. I just admire her strength. Not many people could go through all that’s happened and shown the strength she has.”
