R&B singer Brandy's outstanding performance during the 2020 Soul Train Music Awards blew fans away due to her remarkable showmanship.
Brandy, a multi-faceted actress and singer, whose real name is Brandy Rayana Norwood, delivered a jaw-dropping show during this year’s Soul Train Awards. Her singing prowess did not disappoint fans.
Black Entertainment Television, or BET, posted on Twitter the 41-year-old singer’s performance, and a lot of fans raved about her when she sang her songs "Say Something" and "Borderline."
A FEIRY PERFORMANCE
During her performance, Brandy wore an all-black outfit topped with a dark blue cloak. One female Twitter user commented that Brandy’s incredible performance was "everything" to her.
"Brandy’s vocals are IT. Period. #SoulTrainAwards."
More fans praised Brandy, who also showed off her iconic long braids. Another Twitter handler added that 2020 is the "Moesha" star’s year and that the singer has undeniable talent.
Brandy’s show-stopping performance was one of her major accomplishments this year. She earlier released her latest 15-track album called "B7" after an eight-year hiatus from music.
The Grammy-winning artist was a teen when she first signed a record deal in 1993. The following year, she debuted her self-titled album which became certified quadruple platinum.
RELEASING AN ALBUM WITH A PURPOSE
Brandy shared that her “B7” album was a result of her collaboration with Grammy winning-songwriter and "B7" producer LaShawn Daniels, who died in a car crash in September 2019. One of her favorite songs in the album is "Borderline."
The former child star’s “Borderline” visuals have themes on mental health and romance. She also wanted to spread awareness about mental health, particularly in the Black community.
If not for Sy’rai, Brandy would not be here any longer and the industry would have lost a talented musician.
GAINING STRENGTH AFTER DOUBTS
It took a while for Brandy to release her new album as she was filled with doubts about herself as an artist. She said she needed to re-establish who she wanted to be in a place where she felt respected.
Brandy, who earlier had a Verzus battle with Monica Brown, went through a lot of journaling and discussions with her family just to make sure she was heading in the right direction.
She soon realized that music heals. As soon as she released her “very healing” album, Brand was off to a good path as "B7" became a chart-topper in the R&B and hip hop charts, including the Billboard Top Albums chart.
Now that she is back in the music industry, Brandy has one person to thank for helping her realize her latest album. The singer shared she is grateful for her daughter, Sy’rai Smith.
She admitted that she felt lost eight years ago and became hopeless in terms of creativity and music. If not for Sy’rai, Brandy would not be here any longer and the industry would have lost a talented musician.
