Jennifer Hudson is using sports' grandest stage to make her return to the spotlight.
The NFL confirmed today Hudson will sing the national anthem Feb. 1 at the Super Bowl in Tampa. E! News first reported that Hudson would perform.
Hudson hasn't appeared in public since her mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew were slain in Chicago last fall. Her estranged brother-in-law has been charged in the killings.
Hudson, who had released her debut album shortly before the killings, also will sing at the Grammys' MusiCares event a few days later.
