#FlashBackFriday: Do You Remember These Surprising Moments and Teary-Eyed Tributes From Dear Mama 2016?

You might want to grab a tissue.

Moms make such big sacrifices for us, and on Mother’s Day we repay the favor in a huge way. VH1’s second installment Dear Mama: An Event to Honor Moms is just days away and we expect it to deliver the same excitement and emotion as last year’s show. As we prepare to celebrate mothers everywhere with our favorite stars including Halle Berry, Mary J. Blige, Ludacris, and many more paying tribute their moms, let’s take a look back at the very first Dear Mama and the tear jerking tributes and surprise moments that we’ll never forget.

Tune in for the this year’s Dear Mama: An Event to Honor on Monday, May 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
