Monica was one of several recording artists to take the stage at this year’s event. The star mom’s tribute was quite touching as she moved the audience with her amazing voice and overall connection to the crowd. “A beautiful celebration for our mothers,” Monica told her fans.



April Ryan, journalist and political analyst, also attended the Dear Mama event hosted by VH1. The celebrity mom brought her daughters along for the show, which was quite the different side of Ryan.

H.E.R. also performed at the Dear Mama 2019 event. The audience was brought to tears as the Grammy award-winning artist delivered a musical tribute to her mom, Agnes Wilson.

VH1 does a great job of honoring moms every year with its Mother’s Day special. Anthony Anderson and La La Anthony served as hosts during this year’s event.


“This is the third year that I’ve hosted this, and it’s such a great night honoring moms … so many great performances,” La La told Variety at the event. “It’s just a night that’s about them and I just love to be a part of that.” La La’s mother, Carmen Surillo, sat beside her daughter at this past weekend’s event.


“As a mom, there’s no handbook,” Anthony added. “You just have to know your child and do what you think is best,” she added. “That’s what I do with Kiyan. You have to trust your gut and go with the flow.”
