Diana Ross, Double Platinum

Superstar singer Olivia King (Ross) wins lots of Grammys, but no Mother of the Year awards in this cult drama. After ditching her infant daughter Kayla to pursue her singing career, Olivia gets called out by a grown up Kayla (played by Brandy) years later when she tries to make amends. As aspiring singer Kayla learns, beating your absent mother at her own game is the best way to get her to notice you.
