Keith Sweat has been singing love songs for more than 30 years.

He hosts a nighttime radio show called “The Sweat Hotel,” where he talks to listeners about troubles and triumphs in the name of love.

He’s even written a book about love which shares the name of one of his biggest hits – “Make it Last Forever.”

He declares himself an expert on all matters of love on his blog: “I have experienced just about all aspects of relationships. I have had girlfriends, been married, been divorced, cheated on women, been cheated on by women, been in love when it really wasn’t love, and been in love when it was true love,” he wrote.

But on Sunday, he’ll pay homage to everyone’s first love – their mothers.

Keith Sweat and Joe come to the Township Auditorium Sunday for “All About Love,” a Mother’s Day concert.

Concert-goers can expect Sweat to perform all his greatest hits, said marketing coordinator Tresha Clark. Beyond that, she did not know what Mother’s Day surprises he might have planned.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and the concert begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $49.50-$65.50 and available through ticketmaster.com or at The Township Box Office before the show. The Township Auditorium is at 1703 Taylor St., in downtown Columbia.
