Just days after calling her Grammy nominations “truly a blessing,” Jennifer Hudson is heading back to work. The singer and Oscar-winning actress is set to start filming the video for her next single, Yahoo! News reports.
A J Records spokesperson said the singer will head to Los Angeles next week to shoot the video for the song “If It Isn’t Love,” the follow-up to the Grammy-nominated “Spotlight.” [artist id="2481017"]Hudson[/artist] was reportedly supposed to film the video around the time her mother, brother and nephew were killed in Chicago in October.
The release of her debut album has been overshadowed by the deaths of her three family members. In October, only weeks before the tragedy, Hudson released the LP, which also features her Grammy-nominated duet with fellow “American Idol” alum Fantasia, “I’m His Only Woman.”
“So many different people come up to me and say, ‘I’m a huge fan,’ and I say, ‘Oh my God, what am I going to have for everyone [on the album]?’ ” Hudson said then. “That was the biggest challenge, [but] nobody knows my potential the way I do.”
Last week, Hudson received four Grammy nods, including Best R&B Album and Best Female R&B Vocal Performance. In a statement, she said, “It’s been a childhood dream of mine to release an album, so to receive four Grammy nominations is truly a blessing. I’m extremely honored and humbled by the nominations.”
