The Oscar-winning actress spent a few moments at the caskets of her brother and nephew.

Then she gently touched the body of her mother before leaning down to kiss her, attendees told the Associated Press.

“American Idol” Season 3 winner Fantasia Barrino sang the gospel classic “Your Grace and Mercy.”

While singing, she walked over to Hudson, took her hand and sang directly to her.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson and Chicago Mayor Richard Daley spoke at the service.

Afterward, a horse-drawn carriage led the procession to the Oak Woods Cemetery.

No one has yet been charged in the deaths of Hudson’s relatives.

Police call Jennifer’s brother-in-law, William Balfour, “a person of interest” in the case.
