Jennifer Hudson featured on Friday’s “20/20” and the songstress, whose sophomore album ‘I Remember Me’ hits shelves tomorrow, spoke about her journey from singing in church at the age of seven to her Oscar-winning performance in Dreamgirls.
Jennifer, who just performed in Atlanta a few days ago (click HERE if you missed it), speaks on being booted from “American Idol” and also opens up about surviving the heartbreaking tragedy that struck her family in 2008, when her mother, brother, and nephew were murdered.
God is what I feel certain about. No matter what he’s always there—always.
I feel like that is the greatest gift that my mother—that no money, no fame, no nothing could give you at all. I could not and would not be sitting here right now this happy.
Jennifer also sheds tears of joy as she speaks about the love of her life and the joys of motherhood.

These days Jennifer is enjoying life with her hubby David Otunga and son David Daniel Otunga Jr., whom she calls her “munchkabunch.”
“He’s so sweet. He loves to dance, he loves music,” she said. “If my [Weight Watchers] commercial comes on he tells me, ‘Mama, that’s my mama!’”
Despite all she’s been through, J-Hud has still managed to find her joy.
“I have the greatest sadness to be sad over, but then look at the joy that I have too.”
