WOW!! It's been a long time since I've heard Singing like that. I just got the chills! She is an amazingly beautiful singer and it's wonderful to see her sing so well after the tragedy that she has recently gone through. I have recently gone through tragedy in my life and I understand what it does to you. She has made her loved one's Lost very proud with that performance, she had so much passion in it, you could tell she was Singing not only for them but was really Singing for those whom the National Anthem is dedicated to (which is normally not so much the case). She went about the craft of Singing and it became Art, pure Art.
She really did that song justice and what's more she did it with ease and went BEYOND the norm for that song. The song is already a tough song to sing but she REALLY pushed the envelope and hit notes far higher and in excess than what was required and did it with ease.
Jennifer Hudson you have amazing talent and she be highly commended for that performance. You have a long and beautiful career ahead of you. You rival Whitney Houston and may be even much better than she.
