Jennifer Hudson will make her first come performance since the tragic death of her family members at the Super Bowl, but not without the support of fellow artists.
Hudson, 27, will sing the national anthem before Sunday's game between the Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers. It will be her first public appearance since the October slayings of her mother Darnell Donerson, 57, brother Jason Hudson, 29, and nephew Julian King, 7.
She is a strong girl, a girl of faith, Faith Hill told Associated Press. I believe to come and perform the national anthem, which is this country's favorite song, at a time that our country is stepping up and moving forward for future generations — I think it's just the perfect choice.
Meanwhile, Josh Groban said he thinks that the fact that she's even committing to the Super Bowl is very brave of her and very strong of her.
She will certainly inspire a lot of people by having that strength and by doing what she does best and doing what her family would love her to do which is to show off that glorious voice. We're all rooting for her and we send her our love and support, he told OK! Magazine.
