Tamar Braxton and John Legend Give Sprightly Performances in NYC

Tamar Braxton continues to make her mark in the music industry when she joined 9X Grammy award winner, John Legend on the “Made to Love tour”. This concert was a news buzz in New York City and on Monday, October 28th and Tuesday, October 29th; NYC natives felt Braxton and Legend's presence on stage.

Braxton, a television personality and now a solo rising R&B superstar, made sure her fans were entertained. They knew what time it was because Tamar came to give her fans a stellar show.  They were intrigued with Braxton's sassy persona, in-shaped male dancers, and ongoing dance routines. With a few vocal hiccups, Tamar still managed to impress fans. She sang her album cuts: "Hot Sugar," her mainstream single, "Love & War," "The One," "Prettiest Girl," and "Where It Hurts." 

The main R&B crooner for the night was the sexy, flawless, philanthropist, untouchable, vocalist, and pianist, John Legend. Legend reminded music lovers why they fell in love with him almost ten years ago. He truly made a statement on stage all dressed in black. The newly married multi-platinum artist started off with "Made to Love," and "Tonight (Best You've Ever Had). Legend performed hit after hit and new songs from the album, ‘Love in the Future’. He even took us back to memory lane when he performed "Used to Love You,"  "Get Lifted,"  "Green Light," "Saved Room," Anita Baker's song, "Angel," Luther's "Never Too Much," "Heaven," "Number One," and of course the soft ballad, "Ordinary People." 

When this man performed "Ordinary People," he really had an intimate moment with his fans. The audience was his orchestra when he sang the song a cappella. Legend jumped off the stage and let his light shine on his fans. 

Legend’s endearing eyes, vocal ability, and electrifying energy on stage made the show worthwhile. Legend is a performer and fans would gladly give this king his crown. He truly deserved it! Legend addressed many important lessons on life and relationships in his music: being committed to another person, believing in love, trials and tribulations, and using God as a mediator in your relationships. He ended his segment with the sensual ballad and my favorite, "So High." The song gives people a deeper understanding about being intimate with your mate when you're in love. 

Legend and Braxton's concert in the Big Apple was a big plus in my book.  The two popular vocalists’ mission was to give a jaunty and tireless performance, and that they did. I have two words for the singers: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
