What better way to honor mothers than to serenade them with lovely music, serve them great food, and show them an overall good time as a token of appreciation? As a way to celebrate mothers and women as a whole, T-Kross was inspired to organize this first of a kind event in collaboration with other artists and community organization, Women Werk, as a way of giving back and saying thanks to our life givers – our mothers.
Hosted at Amarachi Restaurant in Brooklyn, NY – Hands Up For Mama served a free dinner to all attendees, provided gift bags filled with goodies, as well as auctioned some items off, courtesy of Simply Ma’am bags.
Awards were also given this night to 4 women who were nominated due to their contributions to the community: Joyce Adewumi, Joanne Sylvester, Christina Ude, and Olamide Davies Talabi. T-Kross opened with song covers to Boyz II Men and 2Face Idibia, “Mama” and “African Queen” respectively.
The ladies absolutely enjoyed this as they took over singing, leaving T-Kross to only smile in amazement as he directed his choir – the audience of mothers. Artist Delit did his thing and got the mothers dancing, while Sudan moved the crowd with an electric performance.
Great entertainment, great networking, pure fun. T-Kross closed the show with his songs “Mama” and “No Worries”. It was definitely a night to remember.
