Mother’s Day is a special day that allows all to celebrate the special people in their lives who have played a special role in their upbringing. From the world’s biggest celebrity to your neighbor, no one would be who they are today without their mother or motherly figure in their life. Joining in on the day’s festivities, BET has put together a special Mother’s Day program led by DJ Cassidy.
“This one is special and unique in several ways,” DJ Cassidy told BET.
“First of all, it celebrates mothers and women. I do believe mothers and women are our backbone. They are our foundation. They are the centerpiece of our world and they make our world go round. I’m really excited to be afforded the opportunity to produce one of my specials as a dedication to mothers and women and celebrate this very special day.”
Pass The Mic: BET’s Mother Day Edition will feature some of the most iconic artists singing uplifting and timely records. Patti LaBelle and Johnny Gill are expected to join DJ Cassidy throughout the program.
“When you listen to Johnny Gill’s music, you want to dim the lights, light the candles, and you feel warm inside, you feel fuzzy inside, and you feel like he’s talking about love,” DJ Cassidy added.
“You feel it, even without listening to his words. And needless to say, the same goes for Patti LaBelle. Often referred to as the ‘Godmother of Soul’, it was so apparent and vividly clear to me that she had to be a part of the Mother’s Day edition.”
DJ Cassidy’s Pass The Mic: Mother’s Day Edition is set to debut on BET at 9 p.m.
