Braxton hits Philadelphia for Love And War Tour

Tamar Braxton is giving her
fans life everlasting (and lots of it) on her Love And War Tour!
She was born on March 17, 1977 into a singing and God-fearing family,
the Braxtons. After her sister Toni’s career took off, sisters
Trina, Tamar and Towanda teamed up, becoming a trio their So Many Ways
album. Fast forward to 2014 and Tamar and her music mogul hubby Vincent
Herbert are the proud parents of a baby boy Logan. The happy couple
also has spin-off reality series of “Braxton Family Values,”
called “Tamar & Vince” on We TV .
At long last, Tamar is currently on a national tour, promoting her sophomore
album Love And War. We caught up with Tamar as she hit the Tower Theatre
just outside Philadelphia recently. Armed with four sexy dancers, Tamar
wowed the capacity crowd with tracks, including “All The Way Home,”
and her solo CD’s title track “Love And War.” Meanwhile,
Vince roamed the crowded theatre, accompanied by security guards.
Did Tamar invite would-be singers (male and female) on stage to see
if they had what it takes? She did that! Truly her mother Evelyn’s
daughter, Tamar held a custom microphone to her lips, smacking, “Don’t
let nobody tell you that you can’t make it or…[Smack]…do
what you wanna do in life,” she declared.
By the way, here’s
a little history on the Tower Theatre, where Tamar played. A tiny singing
musician, named Prince once arrived at the Tower in the arms of his
then bodyguard, Big Chick. Also, a little known young singer once arrived
in a limousine for her concert. She stepped out of the car, carrying
her pink leather dress across her shoulders. She stepped into the wrong
door, ending up not backstage, but in the theatre’s lobby, where
they sold popcorn and candy. Her name was Whitney Houston.
We’re told that Tamar hosted several lucky fans aka “Tamartians”
during a Meet & Greet before the concert. After dates in the mid-west,
The Love & War Tour heads west to Los Angeles and San Francisco
