If you’re wondering what to get your mom for Mother’s Day and she’s a fan of Bon Jovi, this may be the perfect gift! Jon Bon Jovi has teamed up with Cameo, the service that allows users to pay certain celebrities a fee for personalized video messages. For $500, Jon Bon Jovi will record a video for you, wishing your mom a happy Mother’s Day.

Yes this is a bit pricey but the money raised will go to charity. Proceeds will benefit The Roots Fund, which is committed to investing in the Black, Indigenous and LatinX wine community. They provide opportunities to those seeking a career in wine and to those interested in learning about all aspects of wine.

You have until May 6 to book a message with the rocker. Bon Jovi will record 100 videos on a first-come, first-serve basis.

My mom loves Jon Bon Jovi but she wasn’t always a fan. My first “real” rock show was in 1984. Bon Jovi opened for the Scorpions in Charlotte at the old Charlotte Coliseum. I was a huge Bon Jovi fan and I wanted to go to the show, but I was only 14 years old. My mom took me and a few of my friends to the show but she wasn’t a fan of Bon Jovi. She thought he “cursed” too much. LOL! It was the band’s first tour and it’s a memory I’ll always have.

Now my mom is a huge Bon Jovi fan. She thinks he looks amazing now, and he does! I just liked the 80’s big hair, rough rock and roll look. Swoon! I miss the 80’s!
