Tamar Braxton Cries During Best R&B Artist Speech At Soul Train Awards

Tue, December 3, 2013 9:39am EDT by 16 Comments

Tamar Braxton broke down in tears at the Soul Train Awards, but not because she lost! The ‘Braxton Family Values’ star was overcome with emotion after winning three awards during a year that also included the birth of her son.

Tamar Braxton, 36, is having the year of her life. Between the birth of her first child, the success of her reality shows, and the debut of her first album in 13 years, Love And War, we can’t blame her for tearing up as she accepted the award for Best Female R&B Artist at the 2013 Soul Train Awards on Dec. 1. Check out the video below!

Tamar Braxton’s Emotional Acceptance Speech

Tamar won three titles at the 2013 Soul Train Awards in Las Vegas. She took home the statue for Song Of The Year for “Love and War” and The Ashford & Simpson Songwriter’s Award, but it was the Best Female R&B/Soul trophy that led the artist to finally break down in gratitude.

“I’m just so surprised,” she said, choking back tears. “I just wanted to start off by thanking God and thanking everyone who supports me and believes in my music and takes me serious as an artist, because that’s who I am. I just want to thank my fabulous family — my fantastically beat to death sisters and my husband Vincent Herbert.”

So sweet! Tamar, who took 13 years off from music, followed up with a message of inspiration. “I just really want to leave you guys with this note,” she said. “I never thought in my life that I would be here, and the only reason is that because I almost gave up on myself. I want to let you guys know, no matter what you want to be, no matter who you want to be, don’t give up on you. It is possible.”

Tamar Braxton: ‘Not Gonna Stop’

Of course, the littlest Braxton couldn’t leave the stage without adding a tough of her signature sass!

“I’m 36 years old and I’m proud of it,” she teased. “And I don’t give a damn if I was 56 — she was not finna stop! Point blank, and the period!”

Amen, Tamar! What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you happy for Tamar?

Tamar is very talented. My ONLY issue is with the hair. Stop messing with your hair- it takes away from your beautiful singing. Also, get more man meat up there for HOT SUGAR and interact with the dancers more. Congrats on your success.

I LOVE TAMAR AND HOW REAL SHE IS.TAMAR IS LIVING OUT HER DREAM WITH HER WONDERFUL HUSBAND AND BRAND NEW BABY BOY AND NO MATTER WHAT A PERSON DOES SOMEBODY IS ALWAYS GOING TO FIND SOMETHING NEGATIVE TO SAY. THEREFORE TAMAR, I AM A TRUE FAN AND I THINK THAT YOU DID A WONDERFUL JOB AND PERFORMANCE WAS BEAUTIFUL ON THE 2013 SOUL TRAIN AWARD.

CONGRATULATION GIRL AND CONTINUE TO DO YOUR THING, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL AND YOU SING BEAUTIFUL MUSIC!

Being hurtful to anyone online is lame and an incredible sign of the lowest of self-esteem. As if she would read this and think some of yalls opinion mattered. What was the point? To prove how gutter you are? Well—good job.We all believe you.

I feel like Tamar didn’t earn her stripes. She was given this opportunity because she’s married to Vince. Her performance was awful. She akso tries to be too much like Beyonce. That’s what the weird staring off was about during her performance. Not hate. Just a critique on this particular artist.

sorry, beyonce can’t sing, what note can she hit, except a bank note, just saying, how is Tamar trying to be Beyoncé, and to be married to Vince, if she earn her stripes, she should have been that opportunity ten years ago, her performance was okay, but her VOICE was off the change, Tamar has more in common with Mariah Carey, Beyoncé is a show girl. They all deserve their credit, I am proud of all our black sisters.

That is a mean and rude thing to say, i hope you apologize you would not want no one to say that about you or your family. Vince appear to be a nice man who love Tamar and she appears to love him. Please try to remember that people in the public have feelings just like the rest of us :)
