“A Mother’s Love”, a musical stage play based loosely on Kandi Burruss’ rise to stardom in Xscape and the ongoing interference by her mother dipping into her love life, opened at the Rialto Center for the Arts on Friday, November 22, 2013.  The play ran through November 24, 2013.

O.M.G!!! “A Mother’s Love” was the musical of the year!  LIGHTS…CAMERA…and oooohhhh sooooooo much ACTION!!! Todd and Kandi put together an amazing cast which SOLD OUT every night which enlisted the legendary chops of platinum-selling Eddie Levert of the O’JAYS, Chandra Currelly of Tyler Perry’s stage productions, the powerhouse vocalist Shirley Murdock who’s hit single, “As We Lay,” catapulted her to gold-selling status, platinum-selling and Grammy nominated Q Parker of 112, D. Woods formerly of Diddy’s group Danity Kane, and Real Housewives of Atlanta castmate, Porsha Stewart, who made her acting debut. Also a part of the play, popular social media personality, Funky Dineva and V103’s L-Breezy.  TYLER PERRY and TIKA SUMPTER did not want to take any pictures but they joined the cast for OPENING NIGHT!  It was HUGE!

The red carpet overflowed with celebrity friends and family who came out to support the cast of this grand production. Of course, who better to arrive first then the whole crew of RHOA and they looked absolutely amazing. As we gazed at the beautiful Cynthia Bailey, Phaedra Parks, and Kenya Moore, we knew that Peter and Apollo wouldn’t be too far behind. These handsome men gave everyone else a run for their money.

Joining in attendance was Bambi of Love & Hip Hop, Dice Dixon of La La’s Full Court Life, Joseline & Stevie J of LHHA, Nicci Gilbert of R&B Divas, Nivea, Rasheeda and Kirk of LHHA, Sabrina and Kahdijiha of Big Rich Atlanta, Toya and Memphitz, Shanti Das, and Angela Watts, just to name a few.

MRS. MONA SCOTT-YOUNG was in attendance to support our girl Kandi and had this to share:

“People know me from Love & Hip Hop, but I definitely was in music before that time. Most people don’t know that I use to manage recording artists before the LHH days. I have known Kandi for years from the music industry side and I remember when she first told me about this play that she wanted to do. To see this come into fruition is amazing because seeking all of these different personalities doesn’t come easy. Sticking to what you are going to do and say brings this ultimate success and I’m sure that she [Kandi] is going to take this far because she is success!”
