The BET Awards turned truly awesome when K. Michelle and Tamar Braxton set aside their feud to belt out two of their hit songs — plus, they were joined by Patti Labelle, who sang her heart out before making a speech about gay rights!
K. Michelle, 31, is holding her own as a solo artist, but she joined with Grammy-nominated singer Tamar Braxton, 38, to bring the house down at the 2015 BET Awards, held on June 28 in Los Angeles, CA. However, unexpected guest Patti Labelle, 71, truly stole the show!
K. Michelle is definitely one of the most beautiful voices in music, and she proved it with a stunning rendition of her song, “Hard To Do”. Tamar Braxton then made a grand entrance in a fur coat to give a heartfelt performance of “If I Don’t Have You”. Both ladies showed off their incredible range, and Tamar even apologized to K. about their feud!
The two singers are longtime rivals, and have fought on social media over the years over a variety of topics including physical abuse, namecalling and even wigs. However, they put their differences aside to unite for this incredible performance! As Tamar told Entertainment Tonight about K., “In the past, we’ve both had a lot of disagreements…It’s just time for all the nonsense to stop. Let’s just empower each other and be great.” No more bad blood here!
The surprises didn’t stop there. Powerhouse Patti Labelle showed up to sing her hit, “If Only You Knew”, and Tamar and K. joined in at the end for a multi-generational, earth-shattering rendition of the 1983 single. After her song, Patti beamed at the crowd as she announced that the performance was a celebration of the Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage nationwide. What a legend!
