Jennifer Hudson is getting back to work less than two months after three of her family members were fatally shot in Chicago.

The Grammy-nominated singer is scheduled to begin filming a video for the single “If It Isn’t Love” next week, her label J Records tells the Associated Press.

Hudson, 27, was supposed to start filming the clip in Los Angeles when her mother, Darnell Hudson Donerson, 57, brother, Jason Hudson, 27, and nephew Julian, 7, were killed in October.

William Balfour, Hudson’s estranged brother-in-law who is married to Hudson’s sister Julia, was charged with three counts of first-degree murder last week. His lawyer has said Balfour ” did not commit these crimes.”

Hudson hasn’t made any public appearances since the tragedy, however she issued a statement last week after being nominated for four Grammys for her debut album.

“It’s been a childhood dream of mine to release an album, so to receive four Grammy nominations is truly a blessing,” she said. “I am extremely honored and humbled by the nominations.”
