A trio of hip-hop and R&B moms will be in Atlanta this weekend to receive a special honor.
On Sunday evening, Lil Wayne’s mom – Jacida Carter – T-Pain’s mother – Aliyah Najm – and Ne-Yo’s mom – H. Loraine Smith – will be presented with a humanitarian award in music and television at the “Queens in our Communities” celebration.
They will be the first recipients of the award. The ceremony will be held at Atlanta’s Historic Highland Inn & Ballroom. It will include a dinner and entertainment gala that will feature performances from celebrity guests. All the money generated from “Queens in our Communities” will benefit programs that serve to develop a networking system for female entrepreneurs around the world.
Program Director Carla Barnes remarks, quote, “The event is designed to ignite the fire and inspire a whole new generation of empowered women across the country.” Tickets for “Queens in our Communities” range between 20 and 50-dollars and can be purchased at queensofinternetradio.com.
Jacida Carter, Aliyah Najm and H. Loraine Smith will be hitting television screens across the country when they launch their show “Dinner Table Discussions” later this year. The show is said to be similar to ABC’s “The View.” A network for “Dinner Table Discussions” has not yet been announced.
