JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Sunday is Mother's Day and it will be a special one for the mother of a Jackson State University student.

His deep love for her is now in song.

Keon Gibson's debut single is making a name for him in the music industry and could become an anthem for the relationships between mother and child.

"It's the intimate love that you know we kinda skip over. we just say we love them, but we need to show them more," said Gibson Friday from his hometown of Gary, Indiana. 

The tribute to his mother in his debut song Dear Momma Tender Love is a letter of thanks to his mother Kendra Jones.

The Jackson State University meteorology major is rising to stardom, lending his voice to the words of producer Larry Jones with the familiar sound of Force MD's Tender Love.

"Without a doubt, I knew I had to sing this song and share it with the world because it was everything that my mom does for me, is for me," said Gibson.

His father died when he was five-months-old and his mother, a chemist, made many sacrifices to raise him and his younger brother.

She was also an influence in his decision to study the sciences, but his musical journey began at two-years-old playing the drums and at seven playing and singing in the church choir and later guitar.

"You don't really see drummers that can sing or singers that play the drums," shared Gibson. "So I just wanted to do something that was different in the music industry".

Diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, the 22-year-old is a full time student who continues to perform and recorded the song and video in his hometown.

It was released in March and is streaming on all platforms.

"Once I let her listen to it and I saw that she was crying and saw that she was excited. She had joy in her heart. It did me well," added the new vocal recording artist. "The song is just basically about just showing my mom that I saw all the details coming up, up to now and then even still now."

Music and stardom aside, Keon Gibson graduates in December and has accepted a job as an oceanographer with the U.S. Department of Defense.
