Yes, Beyonce was running around stating she wanted to sing at the Inauguration, but I always said that Jennifer Hudson had the inside track.
She is a home town girl, from Chicago.
She has had much tragedy in her life these past few months, but to see her emerge out and about again, it is all good. Please sing, Jennifer.
OSCAR winner and former "American Idol" star Jennifer Hudson hasn't been able to perform since her mother, sister and nephew were brutally murdered in October - but sources say she may be summoning up the strength for President-elect Barack Obama. "Organizers want Jennifer to sing 'The Star-Spangled Banner' at the Inauguration on Jan. 20," our source said. "They are talking to Jennifer about it. It would be the first time she performed since the murders. She is from Chicago and a huge Obama supporter." Hudson sang the national anthem at the Democratic National Convention in Denver in August. Her rep didn't return calls.
