Tamar Braxton's anxiously awaited debut album Love and War [Streamline/Epic Records] is now available in stores everywhere (including a Best Buy exclusive with an added bonus track) and online. Link: [http://smarturl.it/loveandwar-album]
The singer, songwriter, television producer, and actress will be making the rounds all week with multiple high-profile TV appearances to officially herald the record's arrival. On release day, she'll perform on Good Morning America, while she's also set for performances on Live With Kelly & Michael September 4, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon September 6, and a live 30-minute special on Centric September 7.
In the meantime, her third single from the album, "All The Way Home", continues to heat up. Over a sultry piano melody, Braxton's voice resounds blissfully, making for a genuine ballad evocative of classic R&B. The single follows up her two previous hits from the album "The One" and the title track "Love & War", which ascended to No.1 at both Urban Adult Contemporary and No.1 on the iTunes Top Songs Chart.
Just in time for the release of Love & War, the second season of her Braxton Family Values spin-off and smash hit series, Tamar & Vince, will premiere September 5 on WE tv. Between the album, television show, and bevy of television appearances, listeners have the chance to get closer to this multi-faceted superstar than ever before.
On September 28, she'll also join the likes of Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, John Legend and more at the iTunes Festival in the UK. It serves as the perfect primer for her run on the Made to Love tour with John Legend, kicking off October 20 in Connecticut. In addition fans will get a chance to meet Tamar Braxton today in New York at Best Buy in Valley Stream, NY at 7pm and September 7th at Best Buy in Culver City, CA at 12 noon. The first 400 fans to purchase the album will get a wristband that gains access to an exclusive autograph signing. Expect even more big news from Tamar Braxton soon.
This fall, R&B is all about Love & War.
A veteran performer who began singing backing vocals for her older sister Toni at age 12, Tamar was also a founding member of the R&B group The Braxtons with Toni and their other sisters Traci, Towanda, and Trina. All five sisters reunited in 2011 to star in WE tv's Braxton Family Values, which recently had its Season 3 premiere and ranks as one of the network's highest-rated series. A fan favorite on Braxton Family Values, Tamar also starred in WE tv's first-ever spin-off Tamar & Vince alongside her husband, music manager Vincent Herbert. That series gave viewers an inside look at Braxton's burgeoning career as a solo artist after performing with her sisters for most of her life.
