Obama Lends His Support To Hudson Family

The tragic news of the double homicide of Jennifer Hudson's mother and brother reached Senator Barack Obama, who is also a Chicago native.

Obama and his wife Michelle were so heartbroken over the news, they released the followed statement:

"Michelle and I were absolutely heartbroken to learn about this unimaginable tragedy and we want Jennifer to know that she is in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time," the Illinois senator said. "We also pray for the swift and safe return of her young nephew."

If you all remember, Hudson was personally asked to sing at the Democratic National Convention back in August. At the time Hudson said it "was the biggest honor, I feel like, in my career."

As more support for the Academy Award actress pours in, the Hudson family is still praying for the safe return of her 7-year old nephew Julian King, so if you have any info, please contact the Cook County Police Department at (708) 865-4700.
