Melody Thornton of the Pussycat Dolls updated fans on the group’s official pcdmusic.com web site on Saturday (October 25), reacting to the news Jennifer Hudson’s mother Darnell Hudson Donerson and her brother Jason Hudson were found shot to death at Donerson’s home in Chicago on Friday. Thornton tells readers:
This blog is dedicated to Jennifer Hudson who I don’t know personally but I am deeply saddened for during this very difficult time. After hearing her mother and brother were gunned down in their home and her nephew has gone missing, my heart goes out to her and I am so extremely effected by this senseless act of violence. I can only imagine how she must be feeling and I’m praying she has all the support she needs right now. I also want to take this time to show my love and appreciation for my mother and my sister…. My entire family. It’s so important to never take your loved ones for granted. I hope that everyone will take this moment to be so grateful for their families, those who share the same blood, and those who we consider family that don’t. I will keep Jennifer and her family in my prayers…. Everyone please do the same!!!!
