This week, VH1 debuted 'Behind the Music - Jennifer Hudson,' and if you haven't caught the show, it's well worth checking out. The special documents Jennifer Hudson's life from childhood to present, focusing on the highs and lows this remarkable young woman has experienced in the past six years.
The show is also the first time Jennifer has addressed the horrific murders of her mother, brother, and nephew, allegedly at the hand of her sister's estranged husband.
"It's all a blur, it was surreal," she says . "It was like I was outside of myself." After the murders, Jennifer went into seclusion, seeing only close family and friends, and as she said in the interview, praying.
This tragic event could have destroyed Jennifer, but her faith, family, fiance, and close friends brought her through and gave her the strength to continue. Clearly, though, Jennifer isn't letting this tragedy define her and is moving forward with her career and life as a mother.
