Hot on the heels of Jennifer Hudson's mother and brother's death, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is reaching out to her, taking time out from campaigning on Saturday, October 25 to send his condolences for the Academy Award-winning actress-singer. Besides him, rapper-actress Queen Latifah and singer Stacy Ferguson are among the many celebrities who also offer support for Hudson.

Speaking to Mario Lopez of "Extra", Obama said he was saddened upon hearing report on Hudson's mother and brother's murder. "It was heartbreaking -- in fact, I'm still trying to get a phone number to call her at this tragic time," the politician stated. "She is somebody who has campaigned for me, and she also lives in my community. So, we're really going to have to help her and pray for her and her family during this difficult time."

In August, Hudson sang the National Anthem at the Democratic National Convention, where Obama was formally named the party's nominee, after a personal request from the senator's camp. Offering his support for her, Obama also has publicly issued a statement, saying he and his wife Michelle Obama "were absolutely heartbroken to learn about this unimaginable tragedy." "We want Jennifer and to know that she is in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time. We also pray for the swift and safe return of her young nephew," so he stated.

Hudson's "The Secret Life of Bees" co-star Latifah also offered comforting words for the "American Idol" alum, saying "I know the family is devastated and heartbroken and I hope that friends and fans and those who care about her just pray for her and give her all the support that she needs at this moment and for quite a long time to come."

Fergie, meanwhile, commented, "It's such a sad thing and my heart goes out to Jennifer Hudson right now because you know something tragic that has happened to her," adding, "I just feel horrible. Things happen in life and you really have to just stop and really consider what's valuable to you."

God knows best, in whatever you do just remember He is there for you. He understands when you blame him, he understands tears and distress but the good thing about Him is that He nevers stops loving you. My heart goes out to you Jenifer. All Jamaican are praying for you. There are always going to be mean and hateful people in live. They can't love anyone because they dont love themselves. May God continue to bless you and may the family members you've lost rest in peace.

May god bless you and your family to get through such painful experience.I can't even began to imagine what your feeling but i store a prayer up for you and your family to pull through this in your own time, honey take all the time you need to complete this healing process because you will be heeled and pull through this i speak it and declare it done in the name of Jesus Christ.Also I ask God to build a steel cover around your heart that the negative darts people throw at you will not harm you nor hurt you but build you up to grow stronger naturally and spiritually as well. Most of all the best advice i can give you is to surround yourself with them that loves you dearly and if you ever have to scream to release some pain then you do just that.... And as for you (ishotyourmomma)Yeah i would be a typical person to call you all types of names but you know exactly what and who you are but just as i pray for J.Hudson and fam i release 1 for you not for the hatered you hold but for your safety of yourself if and when they ever find out who and where you are as well as your family because you remember what goes around has to come back around now don't get me wrong i pray nothing bad to happen to your family but you have to reep what you sew honey....May God smile down on all those that knows the prayers of the rightous and has offered 1 up on behalf of the Hudson family

It is said that the Devil can manifest in many forms, and it is truly seen in you ishot your momma, your worlds will not go un -punished believe that!!!!!

i can't believe you would say something like that about another human being. you will regret it maybe not today, or even tomorrow but you will someday. To make an horrific comment like that only shows that you are alone and crying for help. you need to ask God for mercy on your soul because if you continue to think you can hurt people with your words think again. Your day will come and it will be just as worse and as painful as the tragedy of j huds family. you will see how they feel only it will be worse because of your evil heart. jennifer i pray that you find peace and that the lord gives you strength at this terrible time. Know that your an amazon woman and that you are strong. keep your faith and trust wrapped up in God. He knows your heart and he's the one person that will never leave you alone. He always has a purpose and a plane for your life remember that. I pray that you stay sweet humble and blessed. with love, targus.

I, too, was shocked to tears to hear about the tragic events that had befallen Jennifer and her family. What is this world coming to? They are definitely in my prayers. I know that God is forever a comforter and vengeance is His! Lord have mercy on the Hudson family and all those who are affected by violence on a daily basis!
