Tamar Braxton Sings National Anthem at Hawks Game

Tamar Braxton

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.

Watch Tamar take on the National Anthem below.

    Really trying to hear the awful part. Not super perfect and skins of drawn out, but she definitely gave a solid rendition.

    She killed it. Her live voice has definitely improved! Go SLAYMAR!

    I was at Philips for the game. Her performance was beyond awful. The video above doesn’t really do it justice.

    Tamar did do a very good job singing. She was not awful either. Tamar is a real singer and thats what you heard a real singer version of her own.
