VH1’s “Dear Mama” is returning for a second year and will air next month on Monday, May 8 at 10 p.m. EST. The mother’s day salute will once again be hosted by “black-ish” star and Golden Globe nominee Anthony Anderson along with “Power” actress and NYT best-selling author La La Anthony.

“Dear Mama: An Event To Honor Moms” recognizes mothers with celebrity guests paying tribute to the women who have shaped their success. This year’s event will take place at the famed Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens in Pasadena, California.

Last year’s inaugural show featured tributes from Anderson to his mother Doris Hancox, Queen Latifah to her mother Rita Bowman as well as the Smith kids—Jaden, Trey and Willow—as they celebrate Jada Pinkett-Smith.

Official sponsors of “Dear Mama: An Event To Honor Moms” include America’s Best Contacts & Eyeglasses®, DOVE® Chocolate , Honey Bunches of Oats®, Strongbow Hard Apple Ciders, Tide PODS®, and Unilever.

“Dear Mama: An Event To Honor Moms” is being produced by Flavor Unit and Jesse Collins Entertainment. Shakim Compere, Jesse Collins, and Jeannae Rouzan-Clay are Executive Producers.

Stay tuned for a full list of honorees in the coming weeks. Will you be watching?
