Finally a bit of good news about Jennifer Hudson. She is going to perform live during Grammy week on February 6th. This will be Hudson’s first live performance since the tragic deaths of her mother, brother, and nephew two months ago. She will be singing at the MusiCares Person of the Year gala, which this year will be honoring Neil Diamond. Hudson is planning to sing a Neil Diamond song at the event. The MusiCares event takes place 2 days before the Grammy’s and in addition to Jennifer Hudson, there will also be performances by Coldplay, Josh Groban and Tim McGraw.
Jennifer Hudson has been nominated for 4 Grammy and she said that “it’s been a childhood dream of mine to release an album, so to receive 4 Grammy nominations is truly a blessing.” Good for Jennifer Hudson to have one dream come true when so many other of her dreams have been shattered with the deaths of her family members. Jennifer is nominated in some of the biggest categories…best R&B album, best females. R&B vocal performance, best R&B song for “Spotlight,” and best R&B performance by a duo or group with her song “I’m His Only Woman”, which she sang with Fantasia Barrino, also from American Idol.
William Balfour, who is the brother – in law of Jennifer’s sister has been charged in all 3 murders and has fortunately been denied bail. He is currently awaiting his next hearing which is set to be on December 30th. Hopefully he is rotting in jail and having a very unmerry Christmas.
