Must See: Tamar Braxton Blows Fans Away With ‘Star Spangled Banner’

Published: Saturday 1st Sep 2012 by Rashad

‘Braxton Family Values’ breakout star Tamar Braxton has seen her divatude land her afront many-a-tweet and headline.  With dot.coms and ‘get your life’ galore, Braxton has had fans itching for her antics on ‘Values’ and her own spinoff ‘Tamar & Vince’ (September 20th).

But love her or loathe her, you cannot deny – that girl can back it up!  Case in point?  Her soaring rendition of the ‘Star Spangled Banner’.

Kicking off the second annual AT&T Nation’s Football Classic game today with a killer rendition of the U.S. National Anthem, the starlet stunned fans with her melismatic stylings and soaring soprano notes.  Before taking that platform however, the singer took to Youtube to upload a treat for fans…


Yes yes yes yes and yes!!!! That girl can sing SANG!  As ever, we are ready for Miss Herbert’s new single to drop.  If it displays even a fragment of the vocals showcased here, we already know it will be on constant repeat at TGJ HQ!

Keep it locked to That Grape Juice for the official performance soon!

      Toni couldnt do some of the things Tamar did with her voice there, and this is coming from a BIG Toni fan!

      • millhouse September 2, 2012

        Tamar sang the hell out of that s***. im sure once she works out all the kinks, it will be perfect. I hope she doesnt choke like she did at the soul train awards… and p.s. …. Toni can do anything Tamar does… Just cuz Toni sings in her lower register, doesnt mean she cant hit a high note. or do all of them runs… They all sang in the church, AND if need be… Toni can go there too… but amar do ya thing… we’ll be watchingT

      • music September 2, 2012

    She totally made it her own. Runs and high notes were amazing. You would think after two plus seasons, that she would have showcased her talent a lot more on the show by now.

    Fake ass Beyonce.

    Remember when they uploaded Beyonce singing “1+1” in the American Idol dressing room.

    This girl just copies everything Beyonce does. Too bad Tamar has only sold about 5 copies in her entire career

    • aquarius September 1, 2012

      wow u have issues! so beyonce invented behind the scenes footage of rehearsing..beyonce invented singing, u know what beyonce invented breathing.. your right the girl is a straight up copycat smh

    • aquarius September 1, 2012

    • Truth(theREALISTubitch) September 2, 2012

  5. XoMoDe September 1, 2012

    Eh. I guess.

    I would’t but her album.

  6. trillafood September 1, 2012

    She was doing too much.
    And yes, Tamar is like a terrible Beyonce drag queen impersonator.

  7. aquarius September 1, 2012

    That was good , i think that’s what everyone is trying to say on the post they just don’t know how to articulate themselves lmao

  8. IRDGAF September 1, 2012

    Wow lol. All over the place.
    A high voice doesnt equate to better vocals.
    I’m not sure where all this Beyonce hoopla is coming from.
    What does she have to do with Tamar f****** up the national anthem smh

  9. Haute Hottie September 1, 2012

    Alright honey bunches you are a Braxton fa real. . . now you know I loves me some NASTY bass from Ms. Toni. . . but Ms. Tamar you got some chops, but I’ma need you to stop talking so much and sing me some songs, and put together an Album that sells units. . . .

  10. Monstarebel September 1, 2012

    That was really good she needs to stop playing and drop an album already!

  11. mob September 1, 2012

    Toni is the best Braxton! Tamar isn’t bad however!

  12. Honey CHILD please September 1, 2012

    Honey CHild i bouts to have a heart attack. I thought that was a white girl up there, but saw TayHood name..

    • Truth(theREALISTubitch) September 2, 2012

      b**** please

  13. Vegas Girl September 2, 2012

    And that was her practicing? Damn, Get it mama!

  14. dee September 2, 2012

    great voice. so am i the only one who thinks her foundation doesnt match her skin tone??

  15. aquarius September 2, 2012

    please tell me the people comparing her to Beyonce or better yet her own SISTER are still in high school. If not you really have growing up to do

  16. rob September 2, 2012

    that wasn’t good, tamar didn’t connect to the song she was struggling in the transition to falsetto , I’m not even hating she’s better than that I have her album . compare that to Try me or If you don’t wanna love me or the braxtons album it’s not her standard .

    • Truth(theREALISTubitch) September 2, 2012

      B**** u a str8 up and down sissy. What the F*** u mean that wasnt good b****?! If u were near me id smack the F*** outta yo b**** ass..h**!

  17. MRDIVABITCH September 2, 2012

    Tamar has a great voice, but such poor taste…that little acapella was so full of random runs and riffs and shifts to blues scale that it was rendered unrecognizable. No matter what you sing, it has to be done tastefully, otherwise it is vocal masturbation instead of art.

    • Truth(theREALISTubitch) September 2, 2012

      F*** u

  18. Peter Griffin September 2, 2012

    At the end she’s like, ‘Done know, I’m one bad motherf***er!’

  19. soulmusiclover September 2, 2012

    thats sure one talented family!! get it tamar!

  20. TKL September 2, 2012

    I really loved this like her or not this b**** can blow and she reminds me of my other favorite singer Mariah Carey with the runs and things. I liked her own version of the national anthem its different . 🙂

  21. Hassan September 2, 2012

    you can clearly tell the Mariah influence in Tamars voice!

    • DIOB September 2, 2012

      ORRRRR She has no mariah influence and thats just the was she sings. Have you thought about that? You people kill me.

      • MusicB September 2, 2012

        Tamar has said numerous of times that Mariah Carey influences her when she sings. You so called “fans” need to learn your info. before you try to diss someone. Every singer has someone who they’re influenced by. That’s not a bad thing.

      • Hassan September 2, 2012

        erm u can clearly here Mariah in that! Beyonce once complemented Mariahs runs and said she was inspired to use them in her music! every singer has influences and Tamar has said on numerous accoisions that Mariah has influenced her!

  22. KNUCK September 2, 2012

    she DID that!!!! I’m not sure what people are talking about.. and the mention of you-know-who was out of line on this post. not with all the yelling and unnecessary runs that SHE does. I have heard Tamar do too many runs and this wasn’t it. Like someone else mentioned, the dramatics reminded me of mariah carey. Throughout her catalog and live performances mariah has trilled and flourished to the gawds and we LOVE her for that. Get your life sweeties!

  23. notsuoh September 2, 2012


  24. Joan September 2, 2012

    Good Morning
    Tamar did a good job. Stop talking about other people. Go on there site. Give it a rest.

  25. PrettigurlrockD September 2, 2012

    Okay ms. Mariah carey jr. You betta kill em!

  26. theman September 2, 2012

    Minus the little kinks she does have a really good voice. She is clearly a huge MC fan, she was doing alot of what she does.

  27. nikki September 2, 2012

    She was amazing and that was just a pratice run, hate her or not give credit where its due the girl can sang! Toni said Tamar was the best singer out of all of them I’m gon have to agree, and just because you’re a fan of one doesnt mean you have to hate on the next. All real Tamartians join the facebook fanpage!/tamarbraxtonvince.

    • Nikita June 8, 2013

      Hey is there any chance you remember the episode where toni said that?

  28. Bey Fan September 2, 2012

    Yassss Tamar….. get yo life.

    We can dissect this little clip and maybe find some flaws….but overall she sounded good. Girl can sang. And I really like her personality…..

  29. Laurie September 3, 2012

    I like her voice really beautiful voice but for any national anthem it is best to sing it the simpliest way no runs ans stuff just deliver the song. She can do what she did on her own songs but please respect the national anthem and make it recognizable

  30. Tika September 4, 2012

    Tamar has pipes anyone with ears can hear this but her attitude is stank and she mangled her face to the point of looking like a muppet.

  31. tyletrois_ September 4, 2012

    okay, the b**** may be annoying, but why can’t people just admit that she sounded f****** amazing… smfh

  32. jsus September 9, 2012

    Tamar rendition of Star Spangled Banner was terrible. We were sitting at home listening and wondered why she was screeming while singing. She hit so many bad notes – they should have taken her off o the field. Someone needs to be honest with her – she cannot sing.
