Rapper Trina bravely tackled the stage at ONE Musicfest in Atlanta just days after her mother died.

The Miami lyricist’s mother, Vernessa “Nessa” Taylor, died on September 2nd after battling breast cancer. In the wake of her passing, Trina’s camp released this statement: “Thank you all for your kind words and condolences regarding Trina’s mother. It truly gives the family some peace and comfort knowing that ‘Nessa’ lived such a fulfilling life filled with love and abundance.” Trina’s team asks for privacy as the family mourns.”

A few days later, Trina was slated to perform at One Musicfest and showed up despite being in the midst of mourning. The crowd greeted Trina with lots of love and comfort through cheers and encouragement. Trina was visibly overcome with grief on stage.

Trina recently talked to the Recording Academy about a song she dedicated to her mom on her latest album.

“My mom was kinda sick when I was in the studio making this song, and I was in a really down place,” the “Love & Hip Hop” reality star told The Recording Academy at the time.

. “… I called her on the phone, [but] she wasn’t feeling so good, so that inspired the song. I just went into the studio with all these emotions … and that’s how it came out.”

“Respect, admire, love your mom,” Trina continued.  “You only get one mom in the entire world. You can never, ever get another one. No matter what happens, one only comes your way, that’s a blessing.”

Just a few months before her mom passed, Trina wrote this about her on Instagram.

“My entire world .. my strength, my weakness, my reason for never giving up, my peace, my joy, my EVERYTHING… 🧡 #TheOne 6/21 💎 #momma”
