Video: K. Michelle – ‘A Mother’s Prayer’

A Mother's Prayer

Just in time for Mother’s Day, K. Michelle honors the bond between mother and son in the heartwarming video for her Rebellious Soul ballad “A Mother’s Prayer,” which she dedicates to her son Chase.

The cinematic clip, directed by Amil Barnes, shows the sacrifice a single mother makes while raising her son, ending with an actual video of the reality star and her son doing the Nae Nae.

“My son Chase is the center of my universe,” K told ESSENCE. “My fans and media don’t often see him in the spotlight with me and that is because I work really hard to keep his childhood as normal and carefree as possible. I think the most difficult part of my job is not being there each night to tuck my son in, but the sacrifices I make while working are all with his better interest in mind. Being a mother is the most challenging and rewarding part of my life, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

She will perform at the ESSENCE Music Festival in July, while the first season of her new VH1 show “Untitled K. Michelle Project” premieres November 3.

K. Michelle Performs ‘Can’t Raise a Man’ on ‘Arsenio’

K. Michelle

Before she hits the road with Robin Thicke on Thursday, K. Michelle stopped by “Arsenio” last night for a performance and brief interview.

The Memphis songstress shared her love for country music. “I actually grew up loving country music,” she said. “I play classical piano. I play guitar. And my parents, they put me in a closet. It wasn’t child abuse, don’t get scared. They put me in a closet and it was the biggest closet in the house and I would just sing to the top of my lungs.”

The self-described “ghetto girl with table manners” revealed that she can yodel (“Don’t ask. I ain’t gon’ do it”) and how her vocal coach introduced her to other genres.

“The first tape that I ever got was The Judds,” she said. “I saw The Judds, I loved The Judds, [my vocal coach] taught me how to yodel, and then I got a scholarship to Florida A&M University.”

K, who will star in her own VH1 series “No New Friends,” also defended her behavior on “Love & Hip Hop.” “I don’t think it’s fair at all because you don’t know me,” she said. “You would react the same way as me to a lot of those situations. I’m just bold enough to do it in your face and I can. Those reactions from those blogs and everything, I make their hits go up, so they should thank me or maybe even send me a check.”

She also shut down the stage with a rousing performance of her latest single “Can’t Raise a Man.”
