Jennifer Hudson To Perform At Super Bowl

miércoles, 14 de enero de 2009 |

Jennifer Hudson has been keeping a low profile since the tragic killing of her family last fall, but she is ready to face the world again making her first public appearance at the Super Bowl next month.

The NFL confirmed that Hudson is scheduled to perform the national anthem at the event in Tampa, Fla., on February 1. E! Online's Marc Malkin reported the news exclusively.

"She certainly can nail it," a source told Malkin about Hudson’s return to the stage. "She proved it at the Democratic National Convention." In August last year, Hudson sang the national anthem as then-Sen. Barack Obama accepted the Democratic Party nomination. She was previously rumored to sing at the inauguration of President-Elect Barack Obama on January 20 but her camp downplayed the reports.

On February 6, Hudson is reported to perform at a MusiCares Neil Diamond tribute in Hollywood, the night before the Grammy Awards ceremony, but the rumors are yet to be confirmed.

The Oscar-winning singer and actress, who rose to fame as a contestant on “American Idol,” hasn’t been spotted in public since losing her mother, Darnell Donerson, older brother Michael and 7-year-old nephew Julian King, who were brutally murdered in Chicago roughly two months ago. Her estranged brother-in-law, William Balfour, is currently behind bars indicted on all three counts of murder.
