Jennifer Hudson knows how much pain a gun in the wrong hands can cause as she tragically lost three family members to gun violence in 2008. As someone who has been through so much, Hudson was chosen to close the March for Our Lives protest in Washington DC as Radar reports.


Hudson lost her mom Darnell Donerson, brother Jason Hudson and 7-year-old nephew Julian King to gun violence back in 2008 at the hands of killer William Balfour. The 36-year-old had the assembled crowd cheering when she sang Bob Dylan‘s 1964 protest anthem ‘The Times They Are A Changin’. She was joined on stage by a student choir as they belted the national anthem.


“We all came here for change today, right? We’ve all lost somebody. I’m sure a long time ago, you never thought you’d be standing here today. But we’re all here today for a reason. We all got a story, we all got a purpose, and we all want change.”

The march brought together people from all walks of life including celebrities such as George Clooney, Tracee Ellis Ross, Common, Kim and Kanye, Yara Shahidi, among others. The march was dedicated to students of Parkland High in Florida who lost their lives to a rogue shooter.
