New York: The Oscar and Grammy award winning singer-actress Jennifer Hudson is demanding a seven figure cheque for her planned autobiography.

Hawking a book proposal to major publishers, the 'American Idol' alumnus wants USD 1 million for the effort, reported a website.

The 'Dream Girls' star plans to tell-all about her struggling days as a musician and her transformation from a size 16 to 6.

But while the her story is marketable, publishers are holding out for the full story about her coping with the horrific slaying of her family.

The 29-year-old's mother, Darnell Donnerson, her older brother, Jason, and her 7-year-old nephew, Julian King, were killed in October 2008, allegedly by her brother-in-law, William Balfour, who was indicted for murder.

Hudson has rarely commented on the tragedy. During a February appearance on Oprah Winfrey's show, she struggled to speak about it and started crying as she said, "My mother right now would say to me, 'Why are you always crying? Stop crying. You've got to keep going."
