Jennifer Hudson will return to work next week to begin filming a video for her new single “If It Isn’t Love,” according to her label, J Records.
The singer was preparing to film the video in Los Angeles when her mother, Darnell Donerson, and brother, Jason Hudson, were discovered shot to death in their Chicago home on the city’s South Side on Oct. 24. The body of her nephew, 7-year-old Julian King, was found in a sport utility vehicle three days later.
Hudson has kept out of the public eye since the murders, but she has issued statements periodically thanking the public for their support. Last week, she released a statement after she was nominated for four Grammy awards, including best R&B album for her self-titled debut.
“It’s been a childhood dream of mine to release an album, so to receive four Grammy nominations is truly a blessing,” she said. “I am extremely honored and humbled by the nominations.”
