The youngest of five strong, soulful R&B singers marketed as The Braxtons throughout most of the ‘90s, Tamar Braxton has since moved on to focus on her solo music career, much like her older sister Toni. Her 2013 sophomore release entitled “Love and War” soared to No. 2 on The Billboard 200 and led to concerts across the U.S. Coming off the success of the tour, Tamar earned three trophies at the 2013 Soul Train Awards—Best Female R&B/Soul and Song of the Year for the title track, as well as The Ashford & Simpson Songwriter’s Award.
The soprano performer made her major label debut in 2000 with Dreamworks’ “Tamar,” which featured production by Jermaine Dupri and Missy Elliott, as well as songwriting by Grammy winner Mya. But after a move to Casablanca Records didn’t work out, the youngest Braxton shied away from the limelight, instead providing backup vocals to sister Toni’s albums.
In 2011, Tamar re-emerged on the WE tv reality show “Braxton Family Values” and began dabbling in music professionally once again, eventually signing with Epic Records. Now ticket sales are smoother for Tamar, who also dropped a sexy holiday effort, “Winter Loversland,” in time for the 2013 holiday season.
