Jennifer Hudson is one strong woman.

While she often chooses to stay mum on her family's violent murders (Hud's mother, brother, and nephew were all ruthlessly killed by her sister's ex-husband), the singer recently spoke out on the tragic event.

Now that the mom of one is starring in a Broadway production of The Color Purple, she's finding it easier to express feelings on her late family. In the Color Purple, Hudson's character loses her daughter to a senseless act of violence which obviously is something she can relate to.

The actress elaborated:

"There's a scene where we're all holding up boards with photos of our slain children on them. I turned around, and it's a sea of real women as extras holding pictures of children they actually lost. I'm a character holding a picture of a little girl, but in real life I have the same story."

So tragic. At least the production seems to be cathartic.

Not only has work helped the Chicago native, but so has motherhood and marriage. Jen revealed:

"I went from being an aunt, having a mom, and being a child to not having a mom, becoming a mom, and raising my own child. I tell David all the time, 'You saved my life.'"

Wow. We can't imagine where Jennifer would be now if it weren't for her husband and adorable son!

Despite the support, the AI alum still suffers from isolation over the violent event, explaining:

"It's frustrating as hell to me to have somebody who ain't lost nothing try to talk to me about it. I want to say, 'Don't even bother, because you know nothing.' But you never know how much you can get through until you're going through it."

At least J.H. has made it this far and with so much success to boot.

We can't wait to see how much farther Jennifer will go!
