Amid the pain of losing her mother, brother and nephew in a triple homicide, Jennifer Hudson reacted to news of her four Grammy nominations for her self-titled debut album in a statement released Thursday.


      “It’s been a childhood dream of mine to release an album,” she said, “so to receive four Grammy nominations is truly a blessing. I’m extremely honored and humbled by the nominations.”


       Hudson, 27, was nominated for best R&B album for her self-titled disc, best female R&B vocal performance, best R&B song for “Spotlight” and best R&B performance by a duo or group with vocals for her duet with Fantasia, “I’m His Only Woman.”       

       The nominations were announced on the same day her estranged brother-in-law, William Balfour, was ordered held without bail in the Chicago shooting deaths of her mother Darnell Donerson, 57, brother Jason Hudson, 29, and nephew, Julian King, 7.
