A few weeks ago MediaTakeOut.com told you that Obama’s people were trying to get actress/singer Jennifer Hudson to sing at his inauguration. And would you believe that some of y’all ain’t believe us.
Well check out what the NY Post is reporting today:
OSCAR winner and former "American Idol" star Jennifer Hudson hasn't been able to perform since her mother, sister and nephew were brutally murdered in October - but sources say she may be summoning up the strength for President-elect Barack Obama. "Organizers want Jennifer to sing 'The Star-Spangled Banner' at the Inauguration on Jan. 20," our source said.
"They are talking to Jennifer about it. It would be the first time she performed since the murders. She is from Chicago and a huge Obama supporter." Hudson sang the national anthem at the Democratic National Convention in Denver in August. Her rep didn't return calls.
You guys are not the only one that reported on this. And this was a given. I mean she is from Chicago and his political career started in Chicago.
Anyone could have guessed this and many have speculated this for months now.
That is definitely a far sight better than that hater Beyonce did for her. "I'm praying for her". I know she'll shine. I love Obama!
I bet Beyonce's conceided *** is MAD!!! Her *** just knew she was gonna be selected. Umm, sorry B, gotta tone it down sometimes, too over the top for President Obama!!
WE SORRY MEDIATAKEOUT OUT AFTER 1,500,450,584 LYING AZZ STORIES YOU GOT ONE RIGHT! LOL.
@chitownbaby lmao.. So true!
I hope she's up to it, I prefer her over Bey!
awww..MTO...you still aint about shi.t
but iill give this one to you
[hugs MTO] sorry !!
GO JHUD !! ii love you :3
bey just released a song titled im proud to be a american lmao she prob thought if i make this song ill get picked poor bey
Yay!!!! I really wanted her to perform.
I can't wait to hear this young lady sing at the inauguration. She is so very talented and classy. No shakin her booty all over the place like some girls (?) do. Wild girls need to watch the inauguration from home... let's keep this event classy yall!
THAT'S RIGHT BARACK! DON'T GET THAT SWAGGA JACKIN A** BROAD, GET A REAL SINGER LIKE J-HUD! MAKE THAT TRICK BLEED WITH HATE!
Yea! Good for you Jenn, hope you tear it up!
******STAY STRONG SWEETIE******
Didn't BeYawnSay just release her already picked out song for the historical event?
Even if Jennifer doesn't accept, it will be fine because she has to feel it in her heart and NOT JUST BE DOING IT TO BE POPULAR.
If people don't realize by now, the world is not at BeYawnSay's feet, she's at theirs trying to keep her name out there.
Hey BeYawnSay HUMILITY is awesome trait. Try it!
MTO YOU NEED TO GET THE FACTS RIGHT!!! JENNIFER SISTER IS NOT DEAD....THAT WAS HER BROTHER, MOTHER AND NEPHEW....LOOLOL
Sing Jennifer, it's OUR party...
Ok Jen - thats a good look. Wow the Convention and the Inauguration. You are clearly the presidents chosen one. God bless and keep your spirits up, your mom would be so proud of you!!!
an event of this magnitude calls for a singer who is known for SINGING...I LOVE Beyonce, so don't get this wrong. But the skin showing, the booty shaking,...there's a time and place for 'those' type of artists.
This election has held black people under a microscope and has us being 'picked apart' more than any other time I know of (during my lifetime).
I really don't want to hear 'white america' criticize January 20th's ceremony in anyway.
Barack can't please us all...but I would love to be reminded of the historical class behind Presidential events, and not the B.E.T. music awards.
ALL DA SINGOE' LADIES! NOW PUTCHA HANDZ W'UP..UTT UTT OHHHHH!
I hope this is true.
^^^ U RITE...I HOPE THE NY POST DIDNT PUT THAT CUZ THEY WRONG...MTO WHEN YALL STEAL OTHA FOLKS FACTS, MAKE SURE THEY ARE RIGHT!!!....LOL..MAKES YALL LOOK EVEN MORE STUPID...
i really hope she does it. that'll be a heartfelt performance,
i hope she does it she has a beautiful voice
Go Jenny Go Jenny!!! I'm praying for you girl!!
MTO u still messed up "since her mother, sister and nephew were brutally murdered in October" u mean her brother not her sister
I HOPE SO BUT THE STORY IS ALL *** UP IT WAS HER BROTHER NOT SISTER THAT WAS KILLED! I GUESS MTO NOT THE ONLY GOSSIP COLUMN TO *** UP A STORY
HOPE SHE DOES IT!
i hope that she can muster up the strength and will power to sing! she is such a power house vocalist and i think it would be a great tribute and honor to her slain family if she did sing...may even aid in her healing process more. often times the best medicine to healing is going back to what you stopped doing once death has occured.
I love J-Hud, I'm glad Obama chose her!
WHY DOES BEYONCE HAVE TO BE BROUGHT UP BECAUSE THEIR TALKING ABOUT JENIEFER. THEY ARE TWO DIFFERENT PEOPLE WITH VERY DIFFERENT STYLES. BEYONCE CAN'T HELP IT THAT SHE HAS SOMETHING ALOT OF PEOPLE LIKE RIGHT NOW. SHE GETTING WHILE SHE CAN YALL WOULD DO THE SAME THING. JENIEFER IS JUST A LITTLE MORE OF A POWER HOUSE SINGER AND BEY IS MORE HIP HOP.
True Talent and humility always prevail!
i hope she does it....
YAYYYYY!!! I am so glad he asked my girl Jen. Hopefully she feels up to it cause this is one chick with TRUE talent.
I pray that Jennifer does it. She has such a strong and magnetic voice. We don't need Ms. Knowles...it's just sad how this woman is pratically begging to perform. She's being photoed with her face painted red, white, and blue and making patriotic records. She is crazy. I never in my life seen a star beg so much and hard. Please Bey just stop it, please.
THATS WASUP..THAT WOULD BE A GOOD START FOR HER IN "09"
we dont owe u na-da! maybe if u stop lyin so much ppl would believe that this site is legitimate :)
Come back Jennifer.
i havent from since
hope she ok
luv u jen
lol give beyonce another reason
to hate jennifer.ha they might bump
heads,isnt jay and bee gonna perform too?
This is a good look for the inauguration. Jennifer Hudson is the epitome of a REAL BLACK sister who exudes class, confidence, grace, modesty, and respect. Such characteristics define a real woman. She has a powerful and beautiful voice and I respect her natural talents. She proves that real talent is all a singer needs to be respected. Never has she sold her soul and became a video vixen/skank/*** clothed/soft-core porn performance act. I got nothing but love for her and hope she's strong enough to show up. A lost of three family members is a tragedy so I hope she's prepared for it. If not I still respect her need for privacy. But if it's true I will be OVERJOYED if she decided to perform.
MTO GET OVER YOURSELF!!
IF I HAD A DOLLAR FOR EVERY FAKE AZZ STORY AND SUPER FAKE AZZ BLIND ITEM YOU HAVE PRINTED, I COULD END THE RECESSION ALL BY MYSELF!!
TEAM: JHUD!! SING BABY SING!!
I hope she does it.
I always thought that it was a logical choice since Obama is Chicago's adopted son.
She's a beautiful young lady, I hope she does it as well...
Be safe and blessed in 2009 people....
will believe when i read it on yahoo.com or abc
MTO was NOT the first to report this...the press office made the call to JHud and my neighbor who happens to be Obama's personal aide...reported it to WAPO.
Follow your own rules MTO or at least stop lying about dropping a story first.
I HOPE SHE CAN PULL THROUGH TO SING...I LOVE JHUD!
WE ALREADY KNOW THIS MTO...
Good for JHud!! I live in a rural, but wealthy white southern town and ALL races (from what I have seen) are deeply touched and moved by what happened to Jennifer Hudson in 08. She is a good choice.
I HEARD THAT OBAMA HAD A LIST OF PEOPLE.
THAT NEW GROUP BRUTHA WAS ON THERE,BEYONCE,JHUD,PATTIE LABELL WAS 2.
GET IT GIRL HOPE SHE DOES IT
Jennifer Hudson is a Real Women that represents Class, integrity etc. She has a natural given talent & I have nothing but love for her. I wish her the best and my prayers are with you Jen, Stay strong!
Now Dat a GOOD LOOK
Congrats Jennifer...why wouldn't he select talent from his hometown?? Not to say that Bey isn't talented, but it's that hometown connection that supercedes all other options. Yeah, I said Bey was talented...I'm entitled to my opinion......and let the rebuttals begin...
I hope she will be able to do it; the inauguration is going to be spectacular. Also, it was so refreshing to see the initial comment on topic and not the juvenile "First!" that's usually posted by at least 5 people.
NO OWE U NOTHING CUZ THE SAME *** TIME U GUYS WROTE ABOUT IT THE NEWS SAID SOMETHING ABOUT IT ON TV. ALSO EVERY GOSSIP SECTION OR NEWS SEGMENT ON THE RADIO LIKE STEVE HARVEY, BIG BOI, RUSS PARR, PATTY JACKSON ETC SAID SOMETHING ABOUT THIS.
I hope she does sing. That would be great!
lol@ somebody owes us an apology.
This year gonna be black as hell. I hope they send me my food stamp stimulus package early cuz *** is broke these days
That would be nice.Anybody but Aretha Franklin.
I'd love to see Hudson sing ... on such a marvelous day!!!
lol @ "This year gonna be black as hell"
LOL@ CHITOWNBABY. HEY IM IN THE CHI RIGHT NOW! LOOK ME UP!
WELL THAT WOULD BE A GOOD PLACE TO GET BACK ON HER FEET AT I HOPE SHE DOES IT SHE IS A GREAT ARTIST!!
I'm sure Jennifer will do a fantastic job..
im glad she was chosen...she is constantly making history! im so proud of her!
YES YES YES YES!!!! So glad!
OMG, I hope so. Her mother would have wanted her to do that and I know Im going to get tearyeyed.
that was nice of him and a good look
I think her Mother would want her to sing for our "First Black President" I know she's still mourning the lost of her family .it was not her sister who was murdered. It was her mother ,brother and newphew (there has been a error in your report mto) keep bring us the new MTO!
I really hopes she does it. I heard that if she doesn't Leona Lewis will, and that would not be a good look. She's talented and all, but Jennifer is an American from the Chi.
good i hope she sings,good for ***
I HOPE SHE DOES IT! I HOPE SHE IS DOIN BETTER!SHE CANT MOURN FOREVER! SHE HAS TO GO ON WIT HER LIFE!
lmaof! @ chitown. *** you stole what i was gon' say! ah ha ha ha..They be killing me wit that i told ya'll..
