Sounds like a fanfare of praise has been following Tina Knowles the last couple of days.

Just hours after Beyonce gushed over her mother during her CFDA acceptance speech, Kelly Rowland dedicated her award to the fashion foreword mama.

During a Women In Excellence Luncheon for her charity efforts, Kelly paid tribute to her late mother Doris and Tina Knowles, The Source reports.

Kelly reflected on her late mother explaining, “She would always tell me, ‘Cross your legs, always look at people, be ladylike’ — I just feel she is here.”

She continued her speech, bringing up her second mom, “My other mommy Tina, forced me to look in the mirror and say, ‘You look at that chocolate skin — so pretty,” Rowland told the crowd. “She taught me how glorious our skin is, ladies. Don’t dim your light for nobody.”
