Alicia Keys will publicly celebrate her mum in a TV special to mark America's Mother's Day.
The A Woman's Worth singer will take centre stage during the VH1 event to salute Terria Joseph, who raised Alicia and her brother as a single mum, in honour of the holiday on 8 May (16).
Alicia, who shares two boys with her husband Swizz Beatz, will be joined by Queen Latifah and her mum, Rita Owens, and Will Smith's kids Trey, Jaden and Willow, who will show their love for their mum Jada Pinkett Smith, reports Entertainment Tonight.
Actor Anthony Anderson will host the Mother's Day special.
Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz's five-year-old son is lending his production skills to rap icon Q-Tip's new album.
Little Egypt Dean has already displayed his impressive beatmaking talent by contributing to Kendrick Lamar's track untitled 07 2014 - 2016, from his surprise album untitled unmastered., with superproducer Swizz going public with his boy's involvement on Instagram last month (Mar16).
Now the proud dad has revealed Egypt has been hitting the studio with A Tribe Called Quest legend Q-Tip, after posting new footage of the pair at work on social media.
In the video clip, the kid is shown using a drum pad as Q-Tip sings along in the background.

Alicia Keys and producer husband Swizz Beatz's five-year-old son is starting his music career early as a co-producer for Kendrick Lamar's new album.
The Alright star surprised fans last Thursday night (03Mar16) by releasing a new album, untitled unmastered., without any advance notice. The disc features eight tracks which did not make it onto his 2015 album To Pimp a Butterfly, including one named "untitled 07 2014 – 2016".
Shortly after Kendrick dropped the disc on digital platforms and streaming services, producer Swizz took to Instagram.com to reveal that his son Egypt had a hand in creating the beats for untitled 07 2014 – 2016.
"This is the best Dad moment everrrrr (sic)!!!," Swizz wrote. "Congrats to my son Egypt for producing his 1st track on this amazing Kendrick Album he's only 5yrs old wowwwwwww @aliciakeys look at our lil guy baby. thx #Kendrick for investing in the future !!!"

Rapper DMX has been released from hospital after he was found unconscious on Monday night (08Feb16).
Officers in Yonkers, New York found a 45-year-old man with no pulse collapsed at a hotel parking lot, but he resumed breathing after cops performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and gave him oxygen, according to Yonkers Police Detective Lt. Patrick MCCormack.
MCCormack, who tells the Associated Press privacy laws prevent him from identifying the man, reveals paramedics gave him an opioid reversal medication, which helps with slowed breathing or loss of consciousness.
DMX's attorney Murray Richman corroborated the police's report on Tuesday (09Feb16), adding that while he did not know the exact cause for his client's health scare, he does suffer from asthma.

Singer Alicia Keys is becoming more powerful the older she gets.
The No One singer, who celebrated her 35th birthday on 25 January (16), is as career-driven as ever.
"I love what I do, I love music, it’s so powerful," she told Gayle King at Hearst's masterclass, according to WWD.com "What’s becoming more evident is that I’m becoming more powerful. I’m getting more clarity and more wisdom of what’s happening in the world and how to talk about it, how to access my feelings more."
Alicia's continued confidence has translated into her new music - something that will become more evident with the release of her upcoming sixth album.

Kanye West Has Insisted That His New Record Waves Is "One Of The Greatest Albums" In History.
The 38-year-old rapper had previously boasted that his upcoming record is the "best of all time". But on Tuesday (02Feb16), he took to Twitter to clarify his statement.
"Out of respect for Q-Tip, Puff, Hov, Lauren, Pharcyde, Mary, Stevie, Michael, Hendrix, James, Pete Rock, Pac, Marvin... this new album is ONE of the greatest albums not the greatest just one of,” Kanye wrote on Twitter. “So many musicians touch my life and made me who I am... I want to make something great to honour my idols.”
The album hasn't been without controversy. It was originally slated for release in mid 2014, but Kanye has been working hard to ensure it's the best it can be. He has also had several changes of heart regarding the name, as it was originally called SWISH but he changed that to Waves last month (Jan16).
