After the October slaying, award-winner singer-actress Jennifer Hudson return to the limelight on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
Jennifer Hudson says, she is glad to be back and she found getting back to work and doing what she love is like a therapy.
After a month of show-stopping, much-talked performances at the Super Bowl and Grammy, she came on a live episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show”, with a full appearance saying she is in a very good place– meaning that she is finally at peace in her life.
The interview was all too brief. She performed her latest single, “If This Isn’t Love” and promoted an upcoming 20 city tour with Robin Thicke beginning on March 31 and it has been said that Tyler Perry is courting her for his next movie.
Hudson said Whitney Houston awarding her the Grammy for best R&B album for her self-titled debut CD “almost surpassed winning.”
“As soon as she stepped out on the stage, I lost it. That’s when I got emotional,” Hudson said of Houston. Hudson said she used to create duets with Houston’s records and dream about winning a Grammy.
Hudson said her fiance, David Otunga, is now working and making plans for them, and she showed a picture of her three dogs, named Oscar, Grammy and Dreamgirl.
A the Super Bowl, was she nervous about singing the national anthem? Not Hudson, who said there “was too much going on for me to take it in” or to get nervous about. Even with the difficult final phrases of the national anthem didn’t throw her.
“To me, the biggest notes and the longest notes are the easiest notes,” she said. “It’s just like I’m glad that I made it to the end of the song. That’s how I am. OK, I got this now, I’m home. I’m going home now.”
The estranged husband of Hudson’s sister Julia, William Balfour is accused in the triple homicide of Hudson’s relatives and he has pleaded not guilty.
Like she said, she is now in a very good place, she’s able to deal with the tragedy that she experienced without having to breakdown every time it is mentioned. That’s what happens when you experience something like what she did — you mourn, you deal, you move on—-but you never forget— you just learn to continue living. :-)
