Family and friends of Jennifer Hudson -- including Oprah Winfrey -- gathered in Chicago Sunday to pay their respects to her late mother, brother and nephew -- all victims of homicide.

The memorial service was held Pleasant Gift Baptist Church, Jennifer's childhood parish on the south side of the Windy City. Jennifer did not attend the services. Hudson's sister Julia -- mother of victim Julian King, 7 -- also did not attend the memorial service. Private funeral services are scheduled for today.

Darnell Donerson, 57, Jason Hudson, 29 were shot and killed October 24, Julian's body was found October 27. Chicago police reported last week that they found the gun used in all three deaths. Police have ruled the killings "domestic related" -- and labeled Jennifer's estranged brother-in-law, William Balfour, as a "person of interest" in the case.
