Audiences Still ‘Love’ Tamar Braxton

I don't know about you, but I'm still loving Tamar Braxton's "Love and War." Despite its race to the top of the US iTunes chart upon its release in early December, word on the street is that the single is not getting a lot of play on the radio. Tell me what else is new. A lot of good music doesn't get radio play, but you frequent visitors to this site already know that, don't you? In what looks as if it's an impromptu performance at Billboard Live, Tamar once again proves that her vocal talents are no studio creation and are deserving of more than a week on the charts. When it comes to singing, she can do it here, she can do it there, she can do it anywhere! And she really did, singing to her audience from a spot in the balcony with a photo of a laughing Ray Charles in the background. It's as if he's mocking those who still don't believe in Toni Braxton's little sister. I'm not going to lie, there were a couple of bum notes in there, but I imagine it was very hard to hear as her vocals were nearly being drowned out by her adoring, if off-key audience who were all too enthusiastic about overpowering her with their own performance the whole entire time. At the end, she told them that they sounded great (isn't she sweet?). She, on the other hand, actually did. I love that when she hit that note, her hubby Vincent Herbert cheered her on and clapped for dear life. That's the way it should be. This performance was good, but I'm waiting for the one where she takes it all the way there. With each performance, she has been more way more subdued than I ever expected her to be. With any luck, we'll get to see her let loose as the February release date for her sophomore album nears.
