Jennifer Hudson Appears in Good Spirits in the Wake of Family Murder Trial

Jennifer Hudson knows how to put on a brave face.

Testimonies will begin for her family's murder trial just next week, but the Oscar-winning actress appeared to be doing well while spotted out in Los Angeles yesterday.

Jennifer spent the day filming a Weight Watcher's commercial in downtown L.A.

The company's spokeswoman donned a zip up hoodie, black capri exercise pants, sneakers and the ultimate accessory—her diamond engagement ring—for the shoot.

Despite her smiles, Hudson has some tough times soon approaching—the jury selection was just completed for the Chicago trial of William Balfour, the man accused of shooting and killing Hudson's mother, brother and 7-year-old nephew in 2008.

Last week, E! News confirmed Jennifer could possibly take the stand in her family's trial. A criminal defense attorney also told E! News that her presence could indeed affect the proceedings.

Lucky for Jenn, she has a rocking bod, a killer voice and not to mention her loving fiancé, David Otunga, to lean on.

Best of luck to the songstress as she embarks on this difficult time.
