Every Mother’s Day, we celebrate the hard-working, selfless, irreplaceable women whose unconditional love, support and sacrifices have made the world go ’round since the beginning of time.

This year, ESSENCE teamed up with 2018 ESSENCE Festival headliner, Janet Jackson, to surprise four amazing single mothers from New Orleans for the tireless work they do both in their homes and in their communities all year long. Check out the video above to see what happened when we visited NOLA to honor each of these very special ladies with a little help from Janet and be sure to stay tuned to learn more about their inspiring stories in the coming months. 

Happy Mother’s Day!
