Oscar-winning star Jennifer Hudson took to her MySpace blog Friday, November 14 to express her gratitude for the outpouring support people have given her in the wake of the murder of her family. In a brief message she wrote, "I want to thank each and every one of you for your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time." The actress-singer went on adding, "My sister and I take great comfort and strength from your love and concern."

Jennifer's "Thank You All" post on her MySpace blog came hot on the heels of the release of her GAP holiday ad campaign that saw her modeling the brand's Wintersoft Turtleneck. Though the timing seemed inappropriate for the fashion retailer to have the ad published, it insisted that Jennifer herself has given her blessing for the ad to be unveiled.

On that matter, Olive Doyne, a spokesperson for GAP, confirmed in a statement that Jennifer insisted "to be a part of it and that we should move forward" despite the fact that she had been given the option to back out of the ad.

While investigation is still undergoing in the triple murder of her mother, brother, and nephew, Jennifer and her family reportedly have been staying at the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago since the loss of her family members. Jennifer's estranged brother in law, William Balfour, remains in police custody for his alleged connection with the case and hasn't formally been charged. He will remain in prison at least through December 3.
