Tamar Braxton is a three-time Grammy Award-nominated R&B singer, producer, host, and bubbly reality television personality. Recently nominated “Best R&B/Soul Female Artist” at the 2015 Soul Train Awards, Tamar is savoring the recognition of her newest album “Calling all lovers.”Examiner Leny Navarro has managed to catch-up with the busy Star before her NYC performance next month.
Eaxaminer Leny Navarro: Your new album “Calling all Lovers” is doing very well, it is an absolute jewel, what influenced you this time around?
Tamar Braxton: Thank you, I have been through a lot, it is about your journey to love, and I wanted to talk about my past relationships, the journey encountered before I met my husband Vince. I am very proud of this album. I like to speak to my fans because at the end of the day I am just like them, we all go through things and we can relate. We all want to be loved and be with a sincere companion.
LN: You are finally savoring success but your journey has not always been easy, how do you feel about it?
TB: You certainly get to appreciate when things happen in time. Truthfully I don’t have expectations so when things are coming my way I am only grateful, I thank God for the blessings. I can only say don’t take anything for granted and appreciate each moment. Don’t let people make you feel like you are not good enough.
LN: You have made an impact on DWTS! How would you describe the experience?
TB: It is refreshing to hear the positive feedback; it has been tough because of my fears. I had to start from scratch, as this is not my platform. I did not know if I would be able to learn how to dance outside of twerking (laughs).
LN: Tell us about your hit show “The Real.”
TB: Working with the girls is truly enjoyable, we actually hang out. We have real chemistry; we are real girlfriends. The format works well, it is the perfect platform to share about relationships, motherhood, cooking or fashion. The schedule can be grueling but it has been a complete blessing.
LN: I believe your fans will have the chance to see you perform very soon in NYC?
TB: Absolutely, I have a tour called ”The promise to love” coming up with KEM. I will be performing at the Theater at Madison Square Garden Wednesday, November 25. I am looking forward to this very special moment with the fans.
