Last night’s Soul Train Awards were filled with fabulous performances, lots of honors, a throwback to the 90’s, and an out-pour of emotion and humbleness from Tamar upon winning the award for “Best Female R&B/Soul Artist”. There was not a dry eye in the Braxton family as Toni, Trina, Traci, Towanda, and Ms. E stood in the audience, and there wasn’t a dry eye as we watched from the comfort of our couch. Having struggled to make it in the music industry, this award is a true testament of how hard work and perseverance pays off. “I’m 36 years old and I’m proud of it. And I don’t give a damn if I was 56. She was NOT gonna stop.”
Watch the tearful acceptance speech and see what Tamar’s friends, family, and colleagues had to say about this huge accomplishment.
