Jennifer Hudson Shares Vintage Photos to Remember Late Mom’s Birthday


Frank Micelotta/FOXJennifer Hudson remembered the birthday of her late mother, Darnell Donerson, by posting a picture of herself next to a vintage photo of her mom on Instagram Monday.  

The two looked like twins.

“Today would have been my late mother’s 66th bday! In her words ‘If you think you’ve seen it all just keep on living,'” the caption says.  

Donerson was tragically shot to death by Hudson’s brother-in-law, William Balfour, in 2008.  

Balfour also killed Hudson’s brother, Jason Simpson, and her 7-year-old nephew, Julian King.  

The Grammy and Oscar-winner, and her sister Julia Simpson, created the Julian D. King Gift Foundation to honor her nephew’s memory.
