Nick Cannon Honors His Grandma on Zoe Saldana’s AOL Series ‘My Hero’

Nick Cannon proves not all heroes wear capes on an upcoming episode of AOL’s inspirational web series “My Hero.”

The “Drumline: A New Beat” star gives his grandmother Marie Cannon a wrapped gift and thanks her for helping to raise him in a sentimental clip from Zoe Saldana-produced show, which hits AOL Originals on Friday.

“If I could find a perfect example of a hero, I would say it was my grandmother Marie Cannon,” he tells her. ”You’re the backbone and the matriarch of our family — just sacrificing and giving so much. You’re my hero and I love you.”

The heartwarming series hopes to shine a light on those who helped Hollywood’s biggest stars when they needed it most. In addition to Cannon, other top-billed participants include “Dancing With the Stars” veteran Julianne Hough, TV personality Maria Menounos and “Teen Wolf” star Tyler Posey.
