Hi, I'm Tamar!
And I'm playing the role of Scout Leader Jane!
The New York Times describes Tamar as
"Having a voice that can fill 3 stadiums and the moves of Tina Turner."
Tamar, also known as the muse and favorite singer of her mentor Prince, gained notoriety for being the music legends "Protégé" while co-writing their Grammy-nominated duet "Beautiful, Loved, and Blessed." Along with her sophomore album release "I Am the Storm," (9/30/17) and with recent jaw-dropping performances on NBC’s “The Voice: Season X,” Tamar has been featured as Sarah Vaughn in "Sarah Sings a Love Story" (NYC, 2017) as well as making an off- Broadway debut in the critically acclaimed Broadway musical “A Night with Janis Joplin” (A.C.T. Theatre). Tamar also adds a debut in “Motown, the Musical” (Diana Ross u/s, Esther Gordy, Gladys Knight, Gladys Horton, Lula) to her lengthy resume. Tamar has toured with Tyler Perry's "Madea Gets a Job" prior to touring with “Madea’s Big Happy Family,” “Laugh to Keep from Crying,” “The Marriage Counselor,” and “A Madea Christmas”; Lions Gate productions set to home DVD rentals.
With a recent performance for our former 42nd President and 1st Lady Barbara Bush for their 19th Annual “Celebration of Reading” and for our 43rd President George W. Bush at the “Helping a Hero” event, Tamar continues to excel in creating her own path. Tamar recently launched an
interactive ipad, iphone and Android Music app with a follow-up performance for former Secretary of State at “The Men of Distinction” dinner. A graduate of University of Southern California’s Thornton School of Music with a Bachelor in Music Business Tamar was honored as a Presidential Scholar in the Arts while attending Houston's High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, where Tamar also received 3 Gold medals in the NAACP ACT-SO competition. In 2010, Tamar initiated and created Syren Music Group, LLC: a music entertainment company that specializes in the advancement of independent music and live entertainment which was funded through personal finances acquired while on tour and starring in Tyler Perry’s stage-play “The Marriage Counselor” as the only nuanced lead (New York Times). Through the creation of Syren Music Group, LLC Tamar launched two independent albums "My Name is Tamar" (3.24.2011) and “I Am the Storm” (9.30.2016), whereas the former album garnered sales from Japan, Belgium, Barcelona, the United Kingdom, Canada, the Netherlands and the United States with additional article write-ups from Glamour magazine, VIBE magazine, the New York Times, US
Weekly, Sophisticate's Black Hair and the Vegas Tribune, with complementing appearances on Great Day Houston, Saturday Night Live, Good Morning America, and the BET Awards. Tamar is the co-founder of 2 philanthropic initiatives: The Syren Arts Academy and The Tamar Davis Project: an international, educational and artistic project designed for singers, artists, musicians, writers, painters, composers, choreographers, and dancers to benefit from opportunities that will become catalyst to successfully launch their careers under the watchful eye of industry
professionals turned mentors.
During Super Bowl LI, Tamar successfully re-introduced her philanthropic and educational initiative: the “College, Career, and Empowerment Summit.” This monumental achievement was an inspiration to Houston’s youth about the importance of attaining a higher education and was successful through the partnership with Houston Community College and Stewart Cadillac (just to name a few).
