Jennifer Hudson kisses her mum goodbye at funeral

Actress struggles with her emotions at wake in Chicago

Jennifer Hudson attended an emotional funeral service on Monday to pay her last respects to her murdered family.

The actress, 27, was left devastated when the bodies of her mum Darnell, 57, brother Jason, 29, and nephew Julian King, 7, were discovered last month.

They had all suffered gunshot wounds.

During the 3-hour ceremony at the Apostolic Church Of God, Jennifer spent a moment by each of the coffins.

Looking down at her mum's body, she gently kissed her goodbye, reports the Chicago Tribune.

After the service, in which American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino sang, a horse-drawn carriage led the mourners to the cemetery.

Jennifer’s brother-in-law William Balfour remains in police custody.
