The youngest and most outspoken of the Braxton’s six children, Tamar started singing as a toddler. Evelyn recognized her daughter’s talents when one day Tamar sang “Can you please get me some toilet paper!” Tamar claims she knew as early as three years old that she wanted to be center stage. When the sisters formed The Braxtons, Tamar’s high soprano voice was in sharp contrast to Toni’s husky contralto. Then after The Braxtons broke up, Tamar and her sisters sang back-up for Toni and can be seen in the video “Seven Whole Days.” In 1996 (without Toni), the sisters released an album for Atlantic called “So Many Ways.” A few years later, Tamar explored her gospel side on T.D. Jakes’ Love Songs album. She later met Christopher “Tricky” Stewart, a rapper/producer based in Atlanta, Georgia, who recorded her solo debut album, Ridiculous, which got its name due to the many different musical styles on the album. Ridiculous was retooled and released by Dreamworks as Tamar in 2000.
