Jennifer Hudson Heads Back To Work
Singer/actress Jennifer Hudson is returning back to work two months after the tragic deaths of her mother, brother and nephew. The star will shoot the video to her second single "If This Isn't Love" off her Grammy nominated self-titled debut.
According to a spokesperson from her record label, filming will begin next week in Los Angeles. Hudson was originally scheduled to film the video prior to learning of the slaying of her family members. Upon hearing the news she halted all promotion on her album and headed to Chicago. She has remained in seclusion only speaking out through statements released on her MySpace page thanking fans and well-wishers for their support and prayers.
Last week the Oscar winner became the recipient of four Grammy nominations. "It's been a childhood dream of mine to release an album, so to receive four Grammy nominations is truly a blessing," she said in a statement. "I am extremely honored and humbled by the nominations."
The bodies of Hudson's mother Darnell Donnerson and her brother Jason were found in her childhood Chicago home in October. Her 7-year-old nephew Julian's body was discovered three days later in the back of a SUV. Hudson's brother-in-law William Balfour has been charged with the three murders.
