Jennifer Hudson In Chicago to Film Holiday Special

Jennifer Hudson is in her hometown, Chicago filming her holiday special for ABC, set to air in December.

Home for the Holidays will be based on her life growing up in Chicago, and is sure to be an emotional journey for Jennifer.   Last October, her mother brother and nephew were murdered, allegedly by her sisters estranged boyfriend.

In the clip, Jennifer heads back to her old high school to meet with students and perform a concert.   Her teacher recounts Jennifer proclaiming in music class that “I’m going to be a famous singer.”

There’s a little tease of Jennifer singing, “This Christmas” for the students.

This trip is the first visit to Chicago for her 3 month old son, David.
