Game 3 of the NBA Playoffs kicked off with a patriotic performance from Tamar Braxton. The R&B diva put her powerful pipes on display while singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” before the Atlanta Hawks took on the Indiana Pacers. She had Philips Arena on its feet, but received mixed reviews on social media.
“Daaaaamn, #SheDIDThat!! SLAYED,” wrote one fan, while others were less complimentary. “My god Tamar Braxton was awful in the national anthem,” commented another.
Tamar is currently opening for R. Kelly and will kick off her own “Love and War” tour on May 16 in Miami.
