After her triumphant [news id="1604041"](albeit lip-synched) performance[/news] of the [news id="1604035"]national anthem at Sunday's Super Bowl[/news], Oscar-winning actress/singer [artist id="2481017"]Jennifer Hudson[/artist] is continuing her slow return to the public eye following the [news id="1601983"]October slayings of her mother, brother and nephew[/news] in Chicago.
According to EW.com, Hudson is planning a six-week U.S. tour in the spring, which would mark her debut as a solo headliner on the road. Manager Damien Smith reportedly told the site that Hudson will headline theater-size venues for about six weeks, beginning in late March or early April. "Everybody, stay tuned," Smith said. "You'll be seeing a lot more of her."
A spokesperson for Hudson could not be reached at press time for confirmation of the tour.
One person has already volunteered to accompany Hudson on the road: her "Dreamgirls" co-star Jamie Foxx. The "Blame It" singer, who reportedly sent an inspirational text message to Hudson after her Super Bowl appearance, told "Entertainment Tonight" that he's ready to go on the road with his pal.
"She's doing well," Foxx told "ET." "She says she wants to get back into the flow of things. Hopefully, we will go out on tour together and, you know, heal the world with our music."
Hudson is slated to perform in Hollywood on Friday at the 2009 MusicCares Person of the Year Gala in honor of Neil Diamond, as well as at [news id="1603006"]Sunday's Grammy Awards[/news] where she's got four nominations for her self-titled debut album.
Hudson has also been nominated for seven awards at the 40th annual NAACP Image Awards on February 12, six for her album and one for her role in the film, "The Secret Life of Bees." Hudson is also expected to perform at the Image Awards show.
The singer had kept a low profile for the past three-plus months, but recently began her slow re-emergence with the completion of the music video for "If This Isn't Love" and the Super Bowl appearance, her first public performance since the murders.
