Jennifer Hudson inspired by Alicia Keys
Hudson suffered the devastating loss of not only her mother, but her brother and nephew when they were found shot dead in 2008 but revealed to the Daily Star that she was able to make songwriting into a cathartic process with Keys' help:
"I felt very inspired working with Alicia, who co-produced and co-wrote a lot of the album, along with R Kelly."
"Alicia told me I was an inspiration and we worked with that."
She added, honestly:
“What I like to do is bottle everything up from my experience and give it to someone else, so that was what we did."
