Tamar Estine Braxton-Herbert /ˈteɪˌmɑr/ (born March 17, 1977), commonly known by her maiden name Tamar Braxton, is an American Grammy-Nominated singer-songwriter, actress, dancer, and reality television personality. She is the youngest sister to R&B singing icon Toni Braxton. Braxton had her first big break in music in 1992 as a founding member of the R&B group, The Braxtons, formed with her sisters. After losing two members, The Braxtons released their only album So Many Ways as a trio in 1996 along with four singles: "So Many Ways", "Only Love", "The Boss" and "Slow Flow".
In 2000, Braxton began her solo career, after signing with DreamWorks Records and releasing her self-titled debut album. The album was unsuccessful, charting at number 127 on the Billboard 200. It spawned two singles, "Get None" and "If You Don't Wanna Love Me". The label was unsatisfied with the performance of the album. As a result, Braxton was dropped from the label.
In 2011, Braxton reunited with her sisters, The Braxtons, for the WE tv reality show, Braxton Family Values. The first season was the #1 rated reality show on WE tv and the network ordered a 13-episode second season of the show after the third episode.
Braxton has worked on a number of different solo projects throughout the years, signing with labels such as Casablanca Records and Universal Records hoping to release an album but suffering delays and cancellations. Braxton returned to the music industry after a thirteen year break, with her second album, Love and War. The album was released through Epic Records and was preceded by the singles, "Love and War", "The One" and "All The Way Home". The album was considered to be a comeback for Braxton, due to its success.
She is currently one of the hosts of The Real talk show along with Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, Adrienne Bailon, and Tamera Mowry, which premiered on July 15, 2013 on seven Fox-owned stations across the country.Continue reading at Wikipedia...
