Before Debra succumbed to her breast cancer battle, Jennette shared details of her mother's condition with the Wall Street Journal.
The star disclosed: "I can't imagine how difficult it must be for my mother to tolerate all she has gone through and continues to go through.
"The pain, the worry, and the battle. She wakes up every day hurting and goes to sleep hurting even more.

DCs Funk Parade returns in-person and for a good cause

Various genres from funk, hip-hop and R&B were represented, and at least three performers walked away with $200 gift cards.
For advocates like David Oliver, the parade’s host, and The MusicianShip, a youth development organization that manages the event, one of the goals is to help U Street become what it once was.The Funk Parade and concert series featured several stages all over U Street, along with stops at the African American Civil War Memorial and the Reeves Center.

While the Funk Parade is a gentle reminder of D. C.s past on the top of the music scene, under the direction of The MusicianShip, it also is a way to support area musicians, after-school programs in D.C. Public Schools, and music lessons for kids.
Oliver said he hopes the event continues to grow, as it now competes with Maryland and Virginia to attract and showcase musical talent.
“Lately, everybody is going out in Maryland or Virginia, but D.C. is losing,” Oliver said. “This was the place where Luther [Vandross], Prince … and all of them came running [to D.C.] to perform.”
