JENNIFER HUDSON: HER PAST AGONY AND NEW ECSTASY

JENNIFER HUDSON opens up about the family murders that changed her life - FOREVER!

'It's all a blur, it was surreal," Oscar-winner JENNIFER HUDSON told VH1  as she spoke publicly about the murders of her mother, Darnell Hudson Donerson, 57, and her older brother, Jason, 29, and her nephew Julian King, 7,  in Chicago's South Side in 2008.

All three had been shot to death and William Balfour,  estranged husband of Hudson's sister Julia, was charged with the murders.

"It was like I was outside of myself," Hudson, 28, recalled.

"For almost two weeks straight...   inside one room with just family and friends coming in and out
'I prayed when I'd get up in the morning and prayed before I laid down at night.'

Then Jennifer welcomed a son, David, with fiancé David Otunga, nearly 12 months ago marking a new chapter of hope for the star.

David "makes me feel like the most special person on earth" Hudson said.
