On the June 2009 issue of Essence,
Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson
makes her second appearance on the cover. The award-winning diva opens up for the first time about her family tragedy in an article titled "This Far By Faith." According to Essence
“When I’m onstage, everything kind of goes away…it’s like therapy…”
“David is very family-oriented…I love that. And he is such a gentlemen, like, I sit in the car waiting because I can’t touch the door. I am not allowed! And he is so serious and so focused, but yet, just like me, so playful. We are very similar and I just love the balance.”—Jennifer Hudson, ESSENCE (June 2009)
Jennifer Hudson was at the top of her game when the unimaginable happened last October. It was a tragedy of such epic proportions it seemed inconceivable that the Jennifer we knew—the young woman who came to embody a Hollywood fairy tale—could ever return. Here, she talks to ESSENCE’s Jeannine Amber about being back in the spotlight, the love of her life and what gives her peace.
Congrats to J-Hud for feeling comfortable enough to tell her story. I'm sure speaking her truth will inspire others. Also, J-Hud's camp is still denying all pregnancy rumors
