Reality TV drama queen Tamar Braxton was very emotional at the Soul Train Awards.

For many who are used to her over the top performances her real emotions were a surprise.

During her acceptance speech for the Chaka Khan Award for Best R&B/Soul Female Artist Tamar shed a tear or two.

Toni Braxton's baby sister encouraged viewers to believe in themselves.

"I almost gave up on myself," she said. "No matter what you want to be…don't give up on yourself. It's possible. I'm 36 years old and I'm proud of it."
