Queen Latifah supported grieving singer Jennifer Hudson at the American Music Awards on Sunday in a performance with Alicia Keys and opera singer Kathleen Battle.
Hudson lost her mother Darnell Donerson, brother Jason and nephew Julian in a tragic killing last month.
The pair were found shot dead at their home in Chicago, Illinois, on October 24, three days before seven-year-old Julian King - son of her sister Julia - was found dead in an abandoned car.
Latifah took the stage rapping: Rest in peace Darnell, we'll always remember ya/A job well done with Julia and Jennifer/Take a bright star, let it shine on this mean world/In your time of need, we'll help you follow your dreams, girl. - Wenn
