Last year, Singleton began writing the book titled “Different.” His mother’s character is a teacher who helps a student from Nigeria adjust and shine in her new surroundings. Crafting this story allowed Singleton to bond with his mom all over again. “My illustrator is phenomenal at drawing,” Singleton said with a smile.
“I hope people realize it’s been five years since my mom was taken away from me. Five years, I’m still trying to push that message of the love of unity. As I’ve been able to move forward, I don’t think I’ll ever move on losing the mom the way I did.”
