Jennifer Hudson's family was murdered in 2008

Her mother, brother, and nephew were murdered by her sister's violent and ex. The nephew was seven, the same age as many of the Sandy Hook victims. Hudson was 26 when this happened.

Of any American celebrity alive, she is probably the one who knows what the Newtown families are going through, and what it's like to be the survivor when your loved ones are touched by violence.


*Posting this, because some posters weren't aware of the Hudson kidnapping and slayings. She sang "America the Beautiful" with the Sandy Hook Choir at the Super Bowl earlier.

2. I remember that, too. I don't know how Jennifer and her sister got thru all that!

I would imagine that her sister was carrying a butt-load of guilt unless she got some therapy right away.......

6. I was just horrified when that happened to her family

It happened soon after her Golden Globe and Oscar, and everything. We just never know what will happen in our lives.

10. She's a very courageous, and of course talented, young lady.

No one should ever have to be put to the test as she has. And yet, she emerged triumphant.
