It's that time of year again! Dear Mama: An Event To Honor Moms is returning to VH1 with Anthony Anderson and La La Anthony as our hosts. This year, singer-songwriter and producer Robin Thicke is joining the celebration to honor his mom, while music industry mogul and "King of Snapchat" DJ Khaled will tribute his fiancée. Plus, mulitfaceted star Kelly Rowland and Grammy-winning artist Maxwell are joining the festivities, and accomplished entertainer Ludacris will honor his mother's charitable work. Additional honorees will be announced soon. The show airs Monday, May 8 at 10/9c from The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens in Pasadena, California and you won't want to miss what we have in store.

While we prepare for Mother's Day 2017, who could forget all of last year's fun? The first ever Dear Mama was hosted by Anthony Anderson and full of heartfelt moments and surprises as Queen Latifah, Alicia Keys, Rita Ora and more stars stepped aside to celebrate their moms. Willow, Jaden and Trey Smith honored their mom Jada Pinkett-Smith while Will Smith kept the crowd laughing with hilarious anecdotes and surprised his wife with a performance by Mary J. Blige. Plus, performances by Boyz II Men and Alessia Cara made it a can't-miss celebration.
