The Grammy-winning artist will honor her mom, Terria Joseph, during Dear Mama -- a special one-hour event airing Sunday, May 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on VH1.
The mother-daughter duo have appeared together in Fox's Empire, and share a special bond as Joseph raised Keys as a single parent during her upbringing.
Joining Keys in honoring their mamas at the Anthony Anderson-hosted event in New York City will be Queen Latifah, as well as Trey, Jaden and Willow Smith, who will show their love for their mom, Jada Pinkett Smith. Singer-songwriter Alessia Cara will also be performing her hit song "Wild Things" for her mother, Enza Caracciolo.
Meanwhile, the "Girl on Fire" singer-songwriter should be experiencing some motherly love on the holiday from her sons with rapper Swizz Beatz -- 5-year-old Egypt and 1-year-old Genesis.
