Jennifer Hudson has honoured her mother, Darnell Donerson, on what would have been her 66th birthday.
Eight years after her tragic death, 35-year-old singer and actress shared a photo of herself beside her a vintage photo of her look-a-like mother to Instagram.
"Today would have been my late mothers 66th bday! In her words 'If you think you've seen it all just keep on living'," the Hairspray Live! star captioned the sweet image.
The Dreamgirls star also shared a throwback photo of her and her mum from the last election she voted in.
"The last thing my mother did was go vote for Obama! So it's odd that I would run across this picture on Election Day, the day after her birthday n she's wearing a shirt saying "vote your choice " IM WITH HER ... well mommy I already did , Pls vote today guys !!!," she wrote.
In October 2008, the Oscar winner's mother, who was 57 at the time, her 29-year-old brother, Jason, and her 7-year-old nephew, Julian King, were shot dead in Hudson's childhood home.
Hudson's ex brother-in-law, William Balfour, was later found guilty of the murder.
