Jennifer Hudson – Where You At

Jennifer Hudson has returned to the stage with a new album, her first one, since the tragic murders of her mother, her brother and her nephew in Chicago in late 2008. With amazing inner strength and courage she has let music be a bridge to help her share her gift with the world.

This week she debuted the first single, "Where You At", off her new album, "I Remember Me", on American Idol. Jennifer gave a dynamic vivid performance and her vocals were on fire.

Watch the video filmed in Chicago, directed by Anthony Mandler, for her new single, "Where You At".

With deep emotion the song builds as Jennifer recalls how she has been let down by someone she loved and trusted and promised to be there for her. One the most painful experiences is to be let down when you truly need someone and you are left waiting in the freezing cold.

Near the end of the video it appears as if Jennifer is in a Church and she sings as if she is almost praying. When someone we thought we could count on breaks our trust, it can cause us to loose faith in all around us and question even our trust in God. Our heart searches for answers and we feel lost and betrayed.

For those who suffer chronic illnesses or tragedies, often they will feel let down by those around them. This song captures that pain. Jennifer we thank you for your beautiful moment that lets us feel. We thank you for your strength to survive and your gift that you can give us once more.

With gratitude,

Lady Sharon

Where You At Lyrics

You said when the storm came
That you would be there with your umbrella to block the rain
And you said you’d protect me
From heartache, pain, lies, loneliness, and misery
You said you’d tear down the walls that were in my way
You promised things would be okay
And I stood there in the freezing cold
And I waited for you, but you never showed

Where you at? Oh, where you at? Oh,where you at?
Boy you say would be here for me
Where you at? (Where you at?)
Where you at? (Where you at?)
Where you at? (Where you at?)

Now you said you go to church
Stop slanging, find a real job, and go to work
And you say you stay out of the streets
And spend more time with me
Take away my doubts and fears and fulfill my dreams
You said you’d be that shoulder for my eyes to cry on
Said you would be that one that I could depend on
And I stood there in the freezing cold
And I waited for you, but you never showed

Where you at? (Where you at?)
Where you at? (Where you at?)
Where you at?
Boy you say would be here for me
Where you at? (Where)
Where you at? (Where you at?)

Where you at? (Where you at?)

And oh false promises is much like fake named
You painted a picture for me but there was no frame
You made my future look bright and I believed every word
I went to sleep on the clouds and woke up in the dirt
And now I’m without shelter and the wind is blowing
You say you’d be there for me boy when the tough got going
Said if weapons draw, you’d stand in front of me
Whenever I fell trapped, said you’d be the one to set me free
Thought you were my hero
But as it turns out you a no show
Tell me where

Where you at? ( you at?)
Where you at? (Where you at babe?)
Where you at?
Oh you said would be there for me
Where you at? (Where you at?)
Where you at? (Baby where you at?)
Where you at?
You said you’d be right there for me
Where you at? (And i cant)
Where you at? (See)
Where you at? (See, See)
Where you at? (See)
Where you at?
You’d said you’d be right there for me

    Dear Kaylin,

    Thank you for taking the time to pen your thoughts. As I listened through the song, you were correct and the final lyrics are missing from the lyrics section. I checked and many online sources do not mention the final lyrics either. I hope to be able to listen to Jennifer’s new CD very soon and when I do I shall see the official lyrics hopefully and make the necessary corrections. In the meantime, perhaps we can improvise, as Jennifer seems to do, at the end of the song.

    I’m so happy that you rode by our Kingdom and please ride by anytime. May your way be guided by peace and comforted by love.
