Singer/actress Jennifer Hudson is opening up about the 2008 murders of her brother, mother, and nephew.
"It's all like a blur. It was surreal," the actress said on VH1's "Behind the Music" on Monday. "It was like I was outside of myself. I prayed when I'd get up in the morning and prayed before I laid down at night.... for almost two weeks straight, I was inside one room with just family and friends coming in and out."
Jennifer says that she sometimes channels her mom through her son.
"In so many ways I channel (my mother) because she was such a great mom," she said adding that her son "makes me feel like the most special person on earth. I want him to get the same love and the same upbringing my mother gave us."
Jennifer also said that her 11-month-old son David Daniel Otunga Jr. "reminds me of my nephew."
