Kimberley Locke checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@kimberleylocke) on Monday (October 27), reacting to news that Jennifer Hudson’s mother, Darnell Donerson, 57, her brother, Jason Hudson, 29, and her nephew Julian King, 7, were all shot to death. Locke writes:
How is everybody? I hope everyone is well and taking care of themselves. I am currently in LA. It’s about 6:30am thinking of my fellow American Idol contestant, Jennifer Hudson. I couldn’t believe it. I ask that everyone keep her in their thoughts and prayers. Although I don’t know her extremely well, I couldn’t imagine what she is going through. My mom and my brother are all the family I have, I couldn’t imagine my life without them.
I am sure Jennifer knows that God is with her lifting her up during these difficult times. God has her back. He will get her through this and this too will be a part of her life story that will inspire the rest of us just like American Idol, Dream Girls, her Oscar, and now The Secret Life of Bees. I have learned that God has a plan for us and his plan is so much bigger than we could ever plan for ourselves. So I say to everyone…. Let go and Let God. He will take care of us if we let him.
I pray that you all have a wonderful and blessed day and remember to stop and appreciate the small things in life and laugh a little.
