Jennifer Hudson Prepares Grammy Performance

Jennifer Hudson puts on a brave face as she gets in a workout with fiance David Otunga in Florida on Saturday (January 17).

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.”

  • raquel

    My prayers go out to her and her family. Wishing her All the best in this new year.

    I can’t believe this is the same guy that said he loved ‘Miss New York’. He must have been on drugs when he said that. He’s such an intelligent person. I never understood why he would got on such a horrid show.


    Too bad they won’t find the real killers that killed her family… It is just to convient that just her brother in law is charged.. Gee wiz So why isn’t she jogging with her sister !

    She should be happy that her family is gone now she can move on..
    since her older sister is not a part of her life either.. !!

  • Corey 2 cool

    Becky would you be happy if someone killed your family could you move on. You are an ass!!!!!!!!!!

  • Leah

    Becky shut the hell up. Jenn love you girl. I am so glad that you are taking baby steps on moving back into the spotlight. You are our hero forever!

    Punk is still in the pic, Good to Jennifer.

  • laura

    It’s good to see her smiling.

  • raquel

    Becky: She should be happy so she can move on???? YOU’RE A COMPLETE ASS!!!

  • raquel

    To have your Mom, Sister and Brother killed in such a horrific way is something she will ALWAYS carry with her. Her mother didn’t die from old age, her sister is gone as well as her brother and her sister’s son. I wouldn’t wish this expereince on my worse enemy.

    Glad she’s taking ‘baby steps’ as Leah said. It will be a slow process for her. Hope she has tons of support.

    OH MY LORD, ” BECKY “…..Surely you did NOT mean that ?….Move on ? …………Move on from muder ?……Move on from your entire family being brutally murdered ?…..She adored her mother, and her nephew was precious and just beginning his little, short life…..he did NOT deserve to die…….I don’t know anything about her brother, but she loved him just the same…..
    Let’s choose our words a little more carefully…..Jennifer, I’m sure is NOT excited about ” moving on ” without these people in her life…..She is just going about her life as normal as possible, and trying to find some peace and comfort….It will be a long and painful process for her…….I wish her well..

    Becky Smith’s comment below shows what a cold-hearted, sad and dumb person she is. How very nice of you to kick someone when they’re down. Hope this never happens to you, you black-hearted nasty woman.

  • becky shutthefup

    you had to have been joking or high! Nobody in there right mind would say those things. Jen, I wish you the best and I personally know how it feels to unexpectantly lose your mom. While, the road isn’t easy God will give you everything you need to survive.
