Mary J. Blige Joins VH1's 'Dear Mama' For a Very Special Family Affair

A legend is coming to pay homage.

The lineup Dear Mama: An Event to Honor Moms is getting stronger by the minute - especially now that the one and only Mary J. Blige has been added to the roster.

The Queen of Hip Hop Soul will be in attendance to honor her motherCora Blige. Mary joins the festivities alongside a slew of previously announced talent including Maxwell, Kelly Rowland, DJ Khaled, Ludacris and Robin Thicke. We wonder what Ms. Blige has up her sleeve for Mama Blige.

Aside from what we're certain will be a soul-stirring tribute, VH1 will also premiering Mary's new documentary Strength of a Woman: An Album Documentary timed with the release of her eponymous album. The film will give fans a close and intimate behind-the-scenes look at the making of the new album with studio footage and exclusive interviews with Blige. We'll also hear more about the inspiration behind the writing and direction of her new project.

Dear Mama: An Event to Honor Moms will take place at the famed Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens in Pasadena, California and airs Monday, May 8th at 10 PM ET/PT.

Don't forget to also mark your calendars for Strength of a Woman: An Album Documentary which premieres tomorrow May 2 at 11 p.m. on VH1.
