Watch: Tamar Braxton Performs ‘Love & War’ On ‘Good Morning America’

Published: Wednesday 19th Dec 2012 by Sam

Team Tamar Braxton are playing no games with the campaign for the singer’s new single ‘Love & War’.

Fresh from topping iTunes a day after release, the LaShawn Daniels cut has been the subject of a refreshingly ruthless promo campaign, which made its latest stop on ABC’s Good Morning America.

Watch below as Tamar and her band rock out to the winning cut!

“She” did that!

Vocally delicious, Tamar’s baritone serves as a nod of sorts to big sister Toni, while the power and adlibs she delivered really establish her as an amazing vocalist in her own right.

Yet another stunning performance.

    • Touché December 19, 2012

      B**** please, you’re not hard. You probably just some raggedy ass white girl from malibu.

  10. Chris December 19, 2012

    I knew DHD could deliver this! Just nervous on Wendy!

    • YOYO December 19, 2012

      I think there may have been SOUND problems on Wendy WIlliams maybe she couldne hear herself in the earpice or sumthin.

      • lpd December 23, 2012

        You’re right, YOYO, there were sound problems. She was getting terrible feedback at the beginning. The echo was HUGE. I give Tamar big props for keeping her composure through it. As someone who sings, I felt for her. There is nothing worse than having the big nerves as you’re starting and then having something go wrong with your music or your sound. Your adrenalin is already running high and technical problems added to it send your adrenalin off the charts. Damn good job by Tamar in this appearance. She seemed much more comfortable and confident.

    • Tamartian December 19, 2012

      Again someone trying to claim a massacre but her last tour & album was considered a flop. Hov had to beg w/ free tickets to fill her shows that’s kill umm right I think not have several seats!!!

      • Rihanna December 19, 2012

        Beyonce last album sold more than Toni last 3 combined so just stop yourself. Not to mention Tamar first album only sold 1 copy. It was considered a flop? Girl it was Platninum and that’s something Tamar will NEVER see. And how was the “I Am… Tour” a flop? It grossed $100 million. GIRL BYE LMFAO

      • irene46 December 23, 2012

        tarmar’s voice is wearin’ out bey. rihanna’s voice has improved a hell of a lot but she and tamar shouldn’t even be in the same thought.

        tamar’s voice is up there with whitney’s and mariah’s.

  12. gigi December 19, 2012

    i really wish she would sing this standing up…. this is my ISH

  13. Music December 19, 2012

    All of her performances after The Wendy Williams Show have been nothing short of AMAZING. She wasn’t lying when she said she sings best sitting down.

  14. BEYHIVE December 19, 2012


    • phillydoinit December 19, 2012

      YAAAASSSSSSS, she is coming!!

    • UMo December 19, 2012

      Hmmmm. Something about you seems very inauthentic and…off. My spidey senses are telling me that you’re a Beyonce hater posing as a fan, using her name to be obnoxious to cause anger her way.

      As a Beyonce fan, I say Tamar killed that performance and the song is hot to death. *Many* Bey fans have been giving Tamar her props, so you missed the mark with this target.

  15. pat December 19, 2012

    SANGG!! and looked flawless…ur fav aint touchin her vocals

  16. Pretty in Pink December 19, 2012

    So she’s gonna sit on an R&B stool (her words) for every performance?

    • lpd December 23, 2012

      No, she dances while she sings Hot Sugar. It’s just the big ballads that have the demanding vocals, she evidently feels more comfortable sitting. My old vocal teacher would have had kittens over it, but if it works for Tamar, and it seems to, then it’s just fine by me. Every singer has their little idiosyncracies either before, after, or during a performance.

  17. PSA (FAF) December 19, 2012

    Cute job, Beyonce

    jk Nice job 😉

  18. Yolanda December 19, 2012

    No shade, but what’s wrong with her face? It looks off.

    • quetta December 19, 2012

      Lol, she had surgery so it’s probably hatd for her to do somethings.

      • lpd December 23, 2012

        She did NOT have surgery. Stop with the garbage rumors please.

  19. nick December 19, 2012

    she hust gets better & better after wendy, i knew she would b more comfy., yes she slayed this❗❗❗

  20. WTF December 19, 2012

    Her voice is EVERYTHING. Its how God would translate exceptional to sound.

  21. Coral III December 19, 2012

    I love Tamar ! I could watch her perform love and war all day.

  22. Fierce P**** December 19, 2012

    I actually prefer the live version to the precorded version. Wow!!!

    And I’ve been seeing some other ppl compare her to Mariah Carey. I really don’t hear it. I hear mostly Toni Braxton’s tone in there. Either way I love it! I really felt the passion when she went high! Yes!

    • Pon_de December 19, 2012

      you can hear the mariah influences in how she resolves the notes and the transitions into head voice. but there were Bey growls in this performance as well

  23. BEYHIVE December 19, 2012

    B**** starting to look like beyonce every day by day b**** need to take her love AND her war somewhere. B**** just look sneaky ass hell I can’t stand looking at her. That b**** song almost sounds like keyshia cole “trust and believe”

    • PSA (FAF) December 19, 2012

      Lashan daniel produced both tracks, and that’s Beyonce blazer from “Love on Top” outfit . Kiii .

      • Y December 19, 2012

        She has a STYLIST. When Beyonce had the same hairstyle as Tamar at the VMAS when she performed Love On Top, I didnt see anybody say anything. I remembered seeing Tamar’s hair styled like that FIRST> Such as When Tamar had her hair like that at the Braxton Family Values Reunion>!

      • irene46 December 23, 2012

        this song sounds nothing like keyshia coles ‘trust and believe’ not to mention tarmar’s voice is killin’ keyshia’s.

  24. SayWhaaatt!!!!! December 19, 2012

    Tamar excellent job! The Keyboard player has the biggest man TITS I’ve ever seen, he needs a bra!

    • STONY December 19, 2012

      iam dead with your comment on the keyboard player tits lfmao

  25. Yolanda December 19, 2012

    Why is her face twisted?

  26. Love December 19, 2012


  27. danny b December 19, 2012

    If Tamar can promote the s*** out of only one single that’s been out for only two weeks, I don’t know so many ESTABLISHED artists cant get their s*** together when it comes to promoting a whole album.

    With that said, Tamar, she, her, did and is doing the damn thing with this and all her performances so far. I cannot wait till she starts performing Hot Sugar and when the album releases.


    • PSA (FAF) December 19, 2012

      But just bc she promoting dont mean its gonna be top ten aint it like #59 ?

      • danny b December 20, 2012

        thats only based on digital sales i.e. iTunes. It hasnt even been released to all radio formats yet.

  28. mobwife: mentally ill my arsh he made a life choice December 19, 2012

    Sounds like Toni! I miss the old Toni Braxton that chick use to slay lives all over town! 🙂

    Get it Tamar!! She’s going to have to develop some of that Toni Braxton stage presence however,! Vocally she is on point but she’s going to need a little more to get over that hump if you know what I mean?

    ***LOL at the white ppl in the back looking lost and confused while her baand memebers are swinging their heads and carrying on. 🙂

  29. Peter G December 19, 2012

    This white woman sings like a black girl.

  30. Fierce P**** December 19, 2012

    Pon_de mostly everyone that’s a singer is influenced by MC’s vocal style and how she transitions goes into melisma but That doesn’t surprise me. But here she really doesn’t sound like MC. More so Toni. ESP in lower chest range. If you ever listened to “you mean the world to me” you will spot the similarities easily. But they are sisters after all so that doesn’t surprise me much either. It’s just good to see her finally getting her shine after all these years.

  31. notadummy December 19, 2012

    She has absolutely NO EMOTION.

  32. Jer December 19, 2012

    LOVE the song but lets keep it real. The song topped iTunes for…minutes then flopped and is currently sitting at #63. It tumbled so fast it fuels the flames of suspicion fowl play was involved getting the song to the top. Its obvious Vince pulled what Tommy motolla got caught doing for Lindsay Lohan on TRL… Vince got office floors of interns downloading off of itunes giftcards and ore-paid Visas to get hype. He knows people follow iTunes like a hawk. Ch… The song is still sickening tho

    • commonsense December 19, 2012

      No the logical reason for that is everybody who is a fan of hers was hype from the episode where she was rehearsing and then the episode of her showcase and went and bought the song on itunes and then so did some of her doubters too.She has not promoted the song that much there is no video yet and she is not pink beyonce or rhianna which means europeon countries like Britan won’t promote her music in any form of way. so she is actually doing great no fowl play she has stans

  33. antertain December 19, 2012

    From the gut!!!!

  34. Caramelboi December 19, 2012

    Tamar did dat while she wuz having a _/. Go Tamar!

  35. lola December 20, 2012

    I’m trying to figure out why so many people are supporting this stank, ghetto, and fish looking b****. My goodness she is annoying as f*** on her reality shows and such a whiny b****!!!! This song sounds too much like Keyshia Cole and her lowest note is weak as hell. You can barely hear her in the beginning.

  36. Jmichael December 20, 2012

    i knew what it was on wendy. she was standing up. i always thought she was just playin but she really sings better sitting down! thats type crazy lol…. she killed dat s***.

  37. DollfaceDiva December 20, 2012

    Damn the girl can blow……she took it there. I love that damn song

  38. Rah December 21, 2012

    Yes, yes, and yes. She slaughtered this performance. The only thing I want to see is her lose herself in the song and really go the hell in. She definitely has the vocals, proven by the video above. I just want her to go all the way in to this song. I saw a reminisce of it towards the end when she started to shake that wig and raise those hands (3:38 mark to the end). But all in all a wonderful performance. Excellent job Tamar. Hoping there’s more music and performance to come of this caliber.

  39. MorpheusX December 24, 2012

    “Vocally delicious, Tamar’s baritone serves as a nod of sorts to big sister Toni”

    Umm… Tamar does not have a BARITONE, unless she suddenly became a man and her voice dropped several pitches and octaves.

    Please do not use words you don’t understand the meaning of. It makes you sound ignorant, like “conversate” and “irregardless”.

    From Wikipedia:

    “Tamar has the vocal range of a COLORATURA SOPRANO which spans a range of four Octaves and One Note (C3-D7) …..
    …… She is also able of singing notes in the whistle register, producing a tone that is not piercing but instead very smooth.”

  40. Pref December 26, 2012

    Tamar sounded good on both Wendy and GMA, BUT unfortunately, this is a copy of Keyshia Cole’s song “Trust and Believe.” Play both songs on iTunes to see. Tamar’s words are different and she goes into the high registers. I think Love and War went to #1, because Lady Gaga tweeted to her many followers.

    It’s too bad because Tamar and all the Braxton girls can sing, she just needs to get an original song.
