15 Jun

Tamar Estine Braxton arrived in the world on March 17,1977. She grew up in a family steeped in religion and music. At a young age she started sing with her siblings in the church choir where their dad, Michael, was the pastor. By the time she was 13 Tamar and her 4 sisters; Trina, Toni, Traci, and Towanda; were about to get their first taste of the professional side of music when Arista Records came calling. The 5 Braxton sisters signed but due to the lack of success they were dropped from the record label after a year. Over the next few years Tamar would spend some time as a back-up singer but that was soon about to change.

In the mid 1990s Tamar and 3 of her sisters signed with Atlantic Records. Since that time Tamar has had a great career as singer, songwriter, actress, and television personality. In 2000 she embarked on a solo career that has seen her nominate for over a dozen awards and winning 4. In 2011-12 Tamar tried her hand with her first reality show “Braxton Family Values” that ran for 12 episodes. In 2015 she became a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars” and did well. Medical reasons would force her to leave the show and end up taking fifth place.
