The Grammy winner, 27, will kick off her first solo tour on April 2 in Philadelphia alongside R&B singer Robin Thicke.
The duo will co-headline a five-week U.S. tour that will wrap up ends in Houston on May 8.
"I am so grateful – my first Grammy and my first tour. It doesn't get better than that," Hudson told PEOPLE in an exclusive statement.
Triumphant ReturnStarting with delivering the National Anthem at the Super Bowl Feb. 1, Hudson has made a triumphant return to the spotlight just over three months after her mother, brother and nephew were murdered in Chicago. Her estranged brother-in-law has pleaded innocent to the killings.
"It's a New Year, she's excited about performing again. She knew it was time," a source close to Hudson told PEOPLE. "Fans can expect the Jennifer they've come to love. She just really loves to perform; it's who she is, it's what she does."
