Tamar Braxton irrefutably proved her vocal chops when she scalped the vast majority of R&B divas with “Love And War”, so tackling Rihanna‘s “Diamonds” at a show in Paris should be easy. Right? Well, the 36-year-old eventually pulls it off — reaching full flight in the final minute — but it starts off strangely understated.

Toni’s little sister is a more-is-more kind of lady and should refrain from quietly humming on stage. It made me nervous. Happily, the grand finale is a triumphant with the trademark vocal acrobatics we’ve come to expect from Tamar. Watch up top and brace yourself for chills.

Should Tamar add this to her setlist? Let us know in the comments below.
