A public memorial service took place this weekend for Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother and nephew. Hundreds of Chicago residents attended the memorial, which took place at the city's Pleasant Gift Missionary Baptist Church. "They are all in Heaven having a 'hallelujah good time," Reverend Quentin Washington said of the deceased, "Their lives...were not in vain. Their legacies live on." A private memorial was scheduled to take place today in Chicago. Jennifer Hudson did not attend the public service.
