August broke down on stage.

August Alsina reunited with his mother Shelia Blair on stage following years of separation.

The R&B singer brought an end to their long-running feud during the Houston leg of his current ‘Don’t Matter Tour’, inviting her on stage for the emotional moment. 

Alsina fell to his knees to serenade her with his song ‘Make It Home’, taken from his 2014 album ‘Testimony’.

“But if I don’t make it home tonight / Tell my mama that I love her,” he sang. “Leave some flowers for my brother / Girl I love ya.”

After the moment, Sheila Blair then posted pictures from the reunion on Instagram and explained their situation.

“In my suffering for almost 2 years not completely understanding what God was doing in my life I thank God for the pain that I had to endure to get me to a place of finding rest in him,” she wrote.

“As God wanted my undivided attention from taking Melvin to division between me and August. I’m so glad I surrendered this time apart has made us see the value of love and family." 

The pair have seemingly been feuding for many years, with August claiming he didn’t have a family, during a 2015 interview with The Breakfast Club.
