Just in time for Mother’s Day, K. Michelle has announced the video release for “A Mother’s Prayer,” which appears on her latest album, Rebellious Soul.
In the clip, directed by Amil Barnes, the singer performs as a single mother struggling to raises her son. The video ends with personal footage of Michelle and her son, Chase, singing along to “Drop That NaeNae.“
So what inspired the song? “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.”
She continues, “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.”
In related news, the singer is scheduled to perform at the Essence Music Festival during Fourth on July weekend in New Orleans.
