Kelly Rowland is mourning the loss of an “incredible soul” this holiday season. The recording artist and new mom lost her mother Doris Rowland Garrison on Tuesday, Dec. 2 at the age of 66, the AP confirms

Garrison passed away days before her 67th birthday. Less than a month ago, Rowland, 33, and her husband Tim Weatherspoon welcomed their first child, son Titan

The former Destiny’s Child bandmate was raised solely by her mother, who left her father, Christopher Lovett, when Rowland was just seven years old. Rowland met longtime friend and collaborator Beyonce a year later when the family relocated to Houston, Texas. 

In a statement, Rowland called her mother “an incredible soul who made countless sacrifices” so she could become the person she is today.

In addition to her daughter, Garrison is survived by her son Orlando
