One of my biggest fears growing up was that my mother would be murdered. The thought alone haunted me enough so I can't imagine what it's like to have such a horrible thing happen. I'm sure she's still haunted more than I could ever understand, but for her first public appearance since the death of her mother, brother, and nephew, she was amazing. Honestly, I'm proud of her for simply showing up let alone delivering a great performance.
Say what you want about Jennifer Hudson, but in this instance I just want to celebrate someone handling tragedy in such a triumphant way.
