Bishop T.D. Jakes urged the Braxton sisters to go back to their gospel music roots while spiritually counseling the family through recent trials. The women responded with a beautiful acappella rendition of the Lord’s Prayer.
“I want you to come back to your roots,” said Jakes to Tamar, Toni, Trina, Towanda and Traci “Braxton Family Values.” “God gave you a voice! Sing! Sing something for me. Just take me back home for a minute.”
The sisters heeded Jakes’ words and stood together to harmonize the Lord’s Prayer.
After the quick worship session, witnessed by Jakes and the Braxton parents, Michael Braxton Sr. and Evelyn, Trina reflected on how music brings her and her sisters together.
“I think it was really smart of Bishop Jakes to ask us all to go back to our roots and sing. Especially because when we get together and we sing, and we sing for real, our sisterhood just seems to automatically mesh together again once we’re together and singing,” said Trina
The performance brought their mother to tears and elicited an inspirational response from Jakes.
“That’s what families do,” said Jakes to the Braxton sisters. “We can laugh and love, and lift each other up. That’s how we survive. You can’t stop doing that. I don’t care who did what. You’re still family.”
