Tamar Braxton blessed the internet with her vocals on March 24. The “Love and War” hitmaker participated in the “He’s Got The Whole World” singing challenge on social media and fans were confused as to why the R&B artist invited her former “The Real” co-host Adrienne Bailon-Houghton to join in on the viral internet challenge.
The “Braxton Family Values” reality star sang the hymn — also a traditional African-American spiritual — “He’s Got The Whole World” on Instagram to spread a sense of hope around the world during the pandemic. Braxton shared a message to her millions of social media followers that implied God is the only one in control.
“My Dear God, You are the ONLY thing that has got us. We are depending on you. YOU are the only one who can fix this. This here is bigger than all of us……BUT you are BIGGER 🙏🏼,” she wrote. The singer invited other R&B artists to join in on the challenge such as: Mariah Carey, Tiny Harris, and the “living legend” herself, Toni Braxton. However, fans were flabbergasted to see Braxton communicating with her former co-star, Adrienne Bailon-Houghton.
“Adrriennnne? In my Soulja Boy voice!!🥺🥺,” one user said.
“I see she ain’t got no beef with Adrienne no more lol,” a second fan wrote.
“Adrienne had to be first eh?,” a third user asked.
A fourth user wrote, “Tagging Adrienne gotta be underline shade 😩😂😂 Chile bcuz that girl can’t sing.”
“Adrienne Bailon. Das shady 😂,” a fifth fan said.
“Why she tag……never mind 🤦🏽♀️,” asked a sixth user.
“The Real” premiered on daytime television in 2013 with singer Adrienne Bailon-Houghton, actress Tamara Mowry-Housley, comedian Loni Love, fashion guru Jeannie Mai, and Braxton as co-hosts. Braxton was fired from the show after season 2. Rumors swirled that her former co-host Love wrote letters to the network and was ultimately responsible for Braxton’s departure.
The Grammy-nominated-singer stopped by the “The Wendy Williams Show” show last year to open up about her absence from “The Real.” Braxton said she wishes her former co-hosts the best and implied she does not want them to talk about her on their show. “I don’t want to be anyone’s marketing tool this season,” she told Wendy Williams. Despite her leaving the show, Braxton appears to be in high spirits.
The “He’s Got The Whole World” challenge was created by television writer Tyler Perry. The premise of the challenge is for people to sing the lyrics in the hopes of easing the pain and anxiety that people are feeling around the world. The “All the Way Home” singer is sharing her voice with the world and appears to be mending her relationship with Houghton in the process.
