Tamar Braxton’s “doo-wop pop pop” days are long behind her, and right now the new mother has quite a lot to celebrate. On December 1, we watched as Tay-Tay took home two Soul Train Music awards, and just five days later we learned that our girl has been nominated for three Grammy Awards!
The R&B songstress will be vying for Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Song for her chart-topping hit “Love and War,” and her album Love and War is being considered for Best Urban Contemporary Album.
After the announcement, Tamar hopped on Twitter to say “#Tamartianfriends we are going to the @TheGRAMMYs_ ! Thank you so much 4 riding for me!! What ever happens NEXT.. It is WELL with my SOUL!”
We’re totally excited for the singer, who has worked tirelessly with her husband, Vincent “the” Herbert, to make her dreams come true and it looks we aren't the only ones. The Braxton Family Values star posted a video on Instagram of her son Logan (who turned 6 months old on the day of the announcement) “catching the holy ghost” not too long after the news.
Tamar’s older sister, Grammy award-winning vocalist Toni Braxton, was also filled with tons of emotion, tweeting “Ahhhhhh!!!!!!! I AM SOOOOOOO PROUD OF MY BABY SIS!!!!!! @TamarBraxtonHer !!! 3 NOMINATIONS!!!!! #SHEDIDTHAT WORDS CANT EXPRESS!!!”
Aww! Can you believe it?! If Tamar wins, there will be two Braxtons in the family with Grammys.
