Popular Rhythm and Blues groups from the 1970s and 1980s, The Manhattans and Rose Royce, will headline the Mom With Love Mother's Day show at the Lime Golf Academy in New Kingston on May 12.

Local singers John Holt, Karen Smith and Tahj, and the Silver Birds Steel Band are also on the card.

From New Jersey, The Manhattans were arguably the top Rhythm and Blues group of the late 1970s, thanks to international hit songs like Shining Star, Kiss and Say Goodbye, We Never Danced To a Love Song and Here Comes the Hurt Again.

Rose Royce are originally from Los Angeles, California. They are best known for the funk smash, Car Wash, from the movie of the same name;

I Wanna Get Next to You, Wishing On a Star, Golden Touch and Love Don't Live Here Anymore.

All the acts will be backed by Lloyd Parks and We the People Band.

Part proceeds from the show will go to the Windward Road Primary and Junior High School and the Victoria Jubilee Hospital.
