Jennifer Hudson recently celebrated her 30th birthday with a surprise party thrown by family and friends in DC.

When Jennifer Hudson flew to DC recently for the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz’s 25th

Anniversary Celebration, she had no idea that her family and friends had planned a big surprise for her.

But they did!  The family threw a huge party to celebrate her 30th birthday at Opera Ultra Lounge.  Lil’ Mo was on hand to sing happy birthday.

Raheem Devaughn also stopped by to show Jen some love.

Jen was also greeted by DC-based fashion designer Dana Ayanna Greaves of the label ARTAYA.

During the party, Lil’ Mo posed with Raheem.

And Jamie Brown also attended.

Next up for Jen, you’ll hear her on the dance floor as she recently recorded a song called “Night Of Your Life” with David Guetta off his latest album.

Talking about Jen, David said, “I always love to take singers and take them out of their boxes, and to come with a dancesong with her was really exciting,” he says. “She is beautiful in every way: as a person, as a singer, as a human being.”
