Last night’s “Dear Mama” Mother’s Day special on VH1 allowed celebs to honor their moms. Rita Ora gave a heartfelt toast to her mother, who is a breast cancer survivor. Alessia Cara also took the stage to say a few words about her mom and then dedicated her “Wild Things” performance to her.
“She’s the definition of strength and independence,” Alessia said. “On days that I feel out of place, she tells me I’m right where I need to be. She reminds me to express myself in any way I choose to and live my life with no shame as it is the only one I was given.”
Watch Alessia toast her mom and perform “Wild Things” below.
