Jennifer Hudson all too keenly understands what it's like to suffer a family tragedy, having lost her mother, brother, and nephew in a brutal triple-homicide last October.

Perhaps that is why when the very visibly pregnant J.Hud belted out the gospel number "Will You Be There" this morning in Michael Jackson's honor at L.A.'s Staples Center, she was able to dig so deep and bring forth so much raw emotion.
