The Chicago community that lost Darnell Donerson, Jason Hudson and Julian King, all members of Jennifer Hudson's family, will be allowed to attend a public memorial scheduled for the slain victims on Sunday, according to Entertainment Tonight.

While Jennifer and her sister Julia Hudson won't be there, the service will bring together the neighborhood to grieve the loss they've suffered.

And, in the aftermath of the tragedy that took three of their family members away from them, Jennifer Hudson and sister Julia Hudson have announced a new foundation to help murder victims' family members.

Named after Darnell Hudson Donerson, Jason Hudson and Julian King, Jennifer's mother, brother and nephew who were slain last Friday, the Hudson-King Foundation for Families of Slain Victims was announced on Wednesday night, after a Chicago prayer vigil.

"The specific purpose of the Foundation is to care for the needs of families who have lost relatives to a violent crime," the family says in a statement. "This encompasses their basic needs of food, clothing and shelter as well as grief counseling."
