SOMBER SONG

The Associated Press Published:

Jennifer Hudson singing with the chorus from Sandy Hook Elementary School on Super Bowl Sunday will be something of a personal moment for the Oscar-winning singer.

Hudson's mother and nephew were shot to death five years ago by her former brother-in-law. He was sentenced to life in prison last year.

Sandy Hook is the school in Connecticut where 20 schoolchildren and six adults were killed in a shooting rampage Dec. 14.
