Tamar Braxton Sings Love And War Live On Wendy Williams, Evokes Spirit 90’s Divas (Video)

Posted on Dec 12 2012 - 3:50am by Funky Dineva

Let me tell you something, I don’t care what you say about Tamar Braxton, she is alright with me. Y’all know that in the past Tamar has not been one of my favorite people, but this right here has COMPLETELY changed how I feel about her. Reality TV does not do every artist justice. I definitely think in the court of public opinion, much of Tamar’s over the top ways on television may have left a lot of people looking at her sideways. Whatever you may feel about Tamar’s personality, good, bad, or indifferent you can’t deny her talent. I always felt that Tamar needed just SHUT UP and SANG. Well, that is exactly what she did. Bae-Bae, Tamar made her to the Wendy Williams show to perform her single Love and War  and she TURNT IT!

Mic stand in hand, hair teased teased to the GAWDS, and a form fitting dress that was serving 1990’s Anita Baker realness, Tamar showed up and showed out. This performance was epic. It was so reminiscent of how things use to be. No lights, no dancers, no props, just a Bish that can sing and a mic stand. Yes Gawd Hunty!

True R&B still lives and is about to make a resurgence. I’m glad to see that Tamar has positioned her self to be one of the leaders of the pack. It is time to see some game changers. I think people are over the bubble gum. The trendy clothing, clown makeup, colorful weaves, computerized beats, Young Money on the remix, all that sh*t has got to go!

Whitney Houston left a spot open in music that so many younger girls have failed to fill. The seat is just sitting there for the taking. By no means am I comparing Whitney’s voice to Tamar’s. However, this performances definitely gave me classic Whitney Houston T’s. The lyrics, the power, the emotion, all things Tamar was effectively able to convey to the audience. That is the mark of a true singer. Tamar Go In and Let have. I hope you stay on this path. Please do not be a Kelly Rowland, give us one hot single then the rest of the CD is sub par. You have a supporter in The Doll…

    I like Tamar but I don’t think her performance was anywhere close to Anita Bakers!! Mrs. Baker shut it down in that performance. Tamar needs some more practice before she’s on Anita’s level.

    An attention-grabbing dialogue is worth comment. I think that you need to create extra on this subject, it may not be a taboo subject but usually people aren’t sufficient to speak on this kind of subjects. Towards the subsequent. Cheers

    The music is good. Tamar sang all over the place, screaming and all. She hit the high note at the end and people think she’s singing. She needs to practice more. Get them wigs in order too. Flat footed and looking crazy is not a good combination. She needs to get her own style, find out who she is supposed to be.

    First off anyone that knows anything about singing and the history of Tamar Braxton knows this girl is a honest ass real singer no auto-tune. Second anyone that knows anything about performing/singing live will tell you that being in full voice all the time and mainly in the morning is not always plausable, just think if the show started taping live at nine or ten in the morning, a real artist has to be there at least two to three hours before for sound check and to go through hair/makeup. If people were to watch her tv show or youtube her warming up the National Anthem, we know that Tamar killed a very stripped down version of Love & War, people please stop with all the negative comments and give this woman her due respect, she is a great talent that has been so underrated, stop comparing her to her sister Toni who is a legend. What/who is Tamar suppose to sound like, when Toni, Micheal, Traci, Towanda, Trina were raised and trained to sing in the same household/church? They all sound very similar, just like the Clark Sisters, for those who don’t know it is called a blend and to sing in harmony together. Nobody complains that most of the so called biggest singers male/female on the radio can’t even hold half a tune live without a backing vocal track or something to distract you from their lack of talent!

    Okay guys.. Put aside the fact that everyone is happy for her to finally be getting her shine BUT lets keep it real. This performance was not good. Let me say that I do like Tamar but I’m not with the biased opinions. I’ve followed Tamars music way before BFV and there’s no doubt about it that ole girl can blow BUT when it comes to singing live she’s always sucked. Their always breathy, pitchy, and off key. And SHE is not here for that fuck shit because Tamar been singing way too long to sing in such bad technique. I really wished she would humble herself to realize that she’s not all that great and get some vocal lessons on breath control or something cause this here aint good for someone who’s been singing since they were a child.

    Yes, she SANG that song perfectly. Vince told her to be patient and it would happen. Now, she can skip off to give him his baby cuz she told him to be patient. But, SOMETHING tells me she is gonna want more … TYPICAL Tamar.

    As far as Anita is concerned …. THAT THERE IS TRULY RAW TALENT….said as I skip off to buy a red dress and microphone…..SUPERB!!!

    I didn’t come away knowing any of the words aside from the ones in the title, but she flat-foot SANG and that’s all I need to know.

    She sounds great. I wonder when the baby is due.

    Yes Gawd!! She better Vince his baby now! He told her to be patient and kept pushing and look what happened. She got exactly she wanted. And yes this is giving me Toni Braxton and I love every note of it. Those two Braxton’s give me life. Trina not so much. She needs to just keep doing weddings or stop trying to be young because it is not a good look.
