For Mother's Day, Lifetime will premiere documentary "Dear Mom, Love Cher," centering on the life of story of -- you guessed it -- Cher's mother, Georgia Holt, who grew up in rural Arkansas and went on to weather the storm of six tumultuous marriages while pursuing a career in Hollywood as a singer and actress.

Holt also raised two daughters, Georganne and Cherilyn, with the latter of course going on to live out the dream that Holt never herself fulfilled. The doc features an exclusive duet between Cher and her mother, and long-lost recordings Holt taped more than three decades ago.

Cher states of the film and her mom: "This project started as a gift for my mom’s 86th birthday.  Like most things in my family, it was initiated by my sister Georganne, who asked me if I could update mom’s album.  So I went BIG (I’m known in the family for doing that)... My mom is EXACTLY like ‘Rocky.’  She NEVER gives up!"

The hour-long film, directed by P. David Ebersole, premieres on Lifetime on May 6.
