Brandy Norwood

Brandy Norwood's fans were saddened to learn she canceled her concerts at D.C's Kennedy Center because she was too sick to perform. But according to The Daily Mail UK, Brandy canceled her concerts after she was told she couldn't lip-sync.

The 39-year-old R&B singer canceled her January 25-26 shows at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and blamed the cancellations on various illnesses.

The 'Moesha' star even produced a doctor's note excusing her absence because she was too ill to perform.

"I've been rehearsing since last year and I'm disappointed I was unable to perform. I'm going to follow the doctor's advice," she said at the time.

But insiders tell the Daily Mail the real reason behind the cancellations was Brandy wasn’t allowed to lip-sync her performance.

Sources tell The Mail Brandy was uncomfortable singing live and she wanted to lip-sync parts of the songs. The source said Brandy had a meltdown when she was told she couldn't lip-sync.

"Brandy didn't want to sing live, bottom line. She became unhinged and ultimately pulled the plug on the entire weekend," the source said.

The source added that artists never lip-sync at the Kennedy Center where they are accompanied by a live orchestra.

"We were told it was stage fright," the source continued. "Whatever her phobias, you just don't lip sync in front of an orchestra."

  • BingBangBoom

    We all know Brandy can sing. She has multiple videos and performances of her singing.. So maybe she was sick and needed additional support.

  • iWasteTime

    I've had Could've Been on repeat, ALL DAY!
    H.E.R sang that song ...

  • Bass

    She is forever getting caught lying through her teeth. And then she had the nerve to throw her team under the bus.

  • Yoni7

    Listening to it RIGHT NOW! LOVE THIS SONG!!!!!!!!! I love Wait For It too. Sounds SO GOOD bumping through my speakers at home. House be a whole mood!

  • Ni Ni

    The Queen dont lip sync. ?

  • No Love Lost

    Something about her is not right. Dark spirit and all.

  • Ni Ni

    Nothing wrong with being a studio singer.

  • Ni Ni

    Isnt she into scientology?

  • NuBeauty

    LOL....why Sandra be petty with these pics?

  • No Love Lost

    Yeah,..there was a video of her in the audience at some scientology get together.

  • Society Has Changed

    SHE ain’t learned yet! Now she soliciting for everybody else’s edges getting toe out! ? Team natural here!

  • No Love Lost

    That's the thing, she wasn't sick. She lied.

  • Cricket404

    Her lane, I'm just a bystander. She is a career professional, if she say she don't want to do it, I support her decision.

  • Society Has Changed

    And this is on my radio right now.... Wooo, Wooo, Wooo, woooooo

  • Scorpio

    I think she is, I could swear I was watch Leah Rehmi's (last name spelling)? about Scientology and at one point they flashed one of the audiences from one of their meetings and Brandy was in the audience. Whatever the case she has steadily become more and more problematic. Wonder if this is why the engagement didn't work, from the last guy. The sad thing about it, is that she a good performer saw her live a few years back and she was good, really seasoned and stage presence.

  • shauna

    She does in fact suffer from bad stage fright. My sources told me there was an issue with a tele-prompter which leads me to believe she wasn't singing one of her songs.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Per usual?

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I read on another site, blind items one, that she has stage fright and would usually do drugs to get through it, but this time instead of doing drugs she opted out. Not sure if it's true or not, just saying.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    I want to see the baby too ??

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    New day, new $hit maybe?????

  • Skin Deep Beauty

  • Around the world

    Problematic, shady, jealous, a liar, disturbing, and bitter.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Get well soon brandy....show these folks yew can stil sang

  • Ni Ni

    That's most singers, i hear, which is why they end up pill poppers, sadly.

  • WhoKnew

    This is why I don't waste my money on concerts. Who wants to pay to see someone lip-sync. Really?

  • MJF

    I was hoping to get something a bit more enjoyable to read. Here are some ideas: 1. Liam Nesson saying he's not racist; 2. the atlanta strippers who made $125K in one night or even the fact that 3. J Lo is apparently doing a Motown tribute. There you go Ms. Rose!

  • Ni Ni

    Im sure she knows her range better than anyone. Not every singer can sing with orchestras, that takes a different skill.

  • oshh16

    The NSO is really, really, really nice. I love when they do the neighborhood performances, the acoustics aren't as nice as the Kennedy Center though.

  • Jesse

    My grandmother said the something about her. She said, and I quote "That girl right there, she's evil".

  • bemetoo

    I never cared for her high almighty lying azz.. she use to think her shat don’t stink and she learned the hard way.. but I give it to her she can sing some runs ole too far apart Venus flytrap mouth having ass

  • Anji

    Being sick may disturb a singer's inner voice. Orchestras tune to A....no autotune or accommodation if you're flat. With that being said, I pay to attend movies to see acting, I don't pay to see someone "act" like they can sing. In classical, the show must go on. Retha, Gladys and nem have no prob tuning in with an orchestra. Engineers can put your note in one ear aurally. But Brandi is a lightweight without much range. My nephew coached her. I coached my nephew.

  • iWasteTime

    Wait for it is good too.
    Could've been has a remix with a Tone Stith. His Falsetto is everything

  • KcoolMuziq

    I have been pursued for Scientology for years and even have visited the temple. After almost being held hostage for over 2 hours. I decided to break away and not pursue it. But I do like their believes of healing through the mind through dianetics.

  • MJF

    Lol right

  • Trace da Ace

    #3 is a hot mess....out of alllll the Motown artists and soulful singers who would have did this tribute justice...they picked J.Lo....and she is not even a strong singer.....wonder who made that decision...smh

  • Ni Ni

    Yeah, disqus has been messing up all day.

  • Bossy704

    Brandy's voice does not have the weight to sing over an orchestra - that would be a Monica, Kelly Roland, Jazmine Sullivan type thing. She wanted the money but she knew better.

  • T Willis

    That’s crazy because I’ve alwats felt like brandy was just an ok singer- but ppl always say that she’s like the vocal bible ????? And I never thought she was a great live performer (singing/dancing/entertainer etc)... she had a great mgmt team way back when...

  • Judge Mental Will

    Well she is a known liar! But also the Vocal Bible(google it)...

  • Fire & Ice

    IKR. I'm like what happened to her, it's almost noon ?

    My sister made me take the tour with her and we had to escape! It was weird! Then when we left weird Scientology adds started coming up on our phones even though we gave them fake info

  • Fire & Ice

    Why you call her dren though ???

  • Shira Harding-James

    I doubt it had anything to do with her singing live
    Let’s be clear, the woman can sanggggggg

    Wait....

  • Shira Harding-James

    It’s been giving me issues for a few weeks

  • Shira Harding-James

    Chile lol

    Wait J Lo and a Motown album?!

  • Kendra Foster

    Fact: Brandy is being punished for not singing Gospel from the heart (.) Fact: The truth is boring. Puh!! Scared of What???? Scared of people who's looking for kings and queens instead of the anointing. Too deep. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WYmqb8jd0sA It's obvious perfect Timing for lost souls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Giving Prayers.

  • Patricia

    i agree. her voice is just blah

  • PlayerP

    I feel like Brandy is dealing with some real health issues...praying for her. Something about this story does not add up...

  • PlayerP

    Cold as ice..I've heard this before almost verbatim.

  • Renee26

    Well hell everybody has something they struggle with internally... the money sure can help take care of a few things.

    I wish I had that extra cash from a few hours of dancing...however I'm too respectful of my body to dance for strangers plus Ion know how to twerk ?

  • PlayerP

    Hahahahah...you stuuuupid...ctfu

  • SunSoy

    Barry Gordy Smokey Robinson or some Black person at the Grammy. This year I am sure they want to make it Women driven show because of the complaints of last year. Album of the year was dominated by men last year and women complained. I am sure they want an array of diverse women.

  • PlayerP

    Took me smooth out...

  • Logan Roberts

    Brandy hasn't been the same since that fatal car accident back in 2007.

  • IAmLegend

    Your nephew didn't coach shyt. Her father Willie Norwood Sr has always been her vocal coach. And ain't no i in Brandy's name.

  • MsNewNew

    Exactly! The Vocal BIBLE upset that she could not lip sync!?! Come on. Now I understand if she wanted to lip sync some of the song, especially if she has been sick--makes total sense but they way this write up is trying to hint at? I'm not buying it. I sing and anytime I am sick and I'm coming back from a sickness, I either lower the key to a song or switch up the arrangement to where I do something different on higher notes.

  • IAmLegend

    I saw Brandy live twice last year. The girl can blow. Especially them ballads Have You Ever and Almost Doesn't Count.

  • MsNewNew

    You have to hear her when she's completely singing on her own, without the interference of creative rights. Her label in my opinion has controlled so much of the way she is able to sing and not sing for that matter. But if you listen to her just go and flow on some spontaneous stuff, she's amazing. Or at least to me she is. Her tone is everything, her control is just as amazing. Again, my opinion only.

  • IAmLegend

    Brandy was doing a mix of her songs and old songs by Sam Cooke and other artists. The issue had nothing to do with a teleprompter. She was actually sick but was also at odds with one of the engineers who disrespected her behind the scenes

  • Solstice

    LMAO!!! ????

  • No Love Lost

    Exactly. She's just blah at best.

  • No Love Lost

    ?? " Venus flytrap mouth having ass".

  • Shira Harding-James

    Her voice is soothing and just amazing!

  • Shira Harding-James

    I just fell out of my seat
    Gosh that tickled me so!

  • Lady_Elle

    Brandy has great vocals... something about this is off!

  • Thanos of Titan

    Brandy is one of my faves and I am highly anticipating her 7th studio album! I'm not sure if these allegations are true or not, but it won't change my love for her music.

  • Chuck

    Monica? Hell no!!!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I like Kelly, but she is not in the same league with Monica or Jazmine.

  • http://www.id820534.sexylfx.website Readytochokemothernatureout

    This chile can sang don't know why she'd want to Soul Train it.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    lol. i don't believe she wanted to lip sync. that's funny though.

  • No Love Lost

    Yeah,..her.

  • Jesse

    I'm not surprised. The vocal pamphlet sounds like a smoker while gargling rocks underwater when she sings.

  • ConcernedCitizen

    I can always tell somebody isn't a singer when they say that Brandy, the best vocalist of her generation, cannot sing.

  • ConcernedCitizen

    Allegedly, she has ruptured one of her vocal cords. I hope that's not true bc I don't think I can imagine life without her vocals. She is one off a kind.

  • ConcernedCitizen

    Bran ain't ever coming back. I love her too, but Jesus will release a album before she will.

  • ConcernedCitizen

    Put some respeck on her name. You know not what you say.

  • ConcernedCitizen

    ? Are you kidding me? Monica? Kelly Rowland? Huh? Jasmine is great, but Bran is even greater considering her catalogue. The only one as good, maybe, is Jasmine. But Monica and Kelly cant sing better than the bottom of brand's foot. How do people not know that she literally is the best of her generation? Maybe because they don't understand that she dumbs down her gift for the masses for radio. And, maybe because people haven't YouTubed her singing in her bathroom.

  • ConcernedCitizen

    Billy Goat Mcgruff. She is beautiful, and can sing, but she can't sang. Bran has tone and technique. She is credited with creating ghost vocals that all artists use. Whitney loved Brandy for a reason. Nobody in her generation can match her.

  • ConcernedCitizen

    One of the most beautiful chicks around, and literally the single best vocalist of her generation. Only folks who don't sing themselves don't know that Bran is a BEAST.

  • Anji

    Willie learned a lot from us also. I have degreezz, experience with orchestras as musician and vocalist who needs no Mic, electronics or accompaniment. I've produced some of the greatest. Many like Willie are good church choral directors but he ain't got Grammies. We do. One thing about me. I never speak on what I don't know. You do. I also work as and coach voiceover artists. Are you even in the industry? Do you know this fam? I bet not.

  • Anji

    She truly did. No shame in being coached by musicians. Everyone requires this for a variety of reasons. Brandy's generation relies on assistance ole skool artists didn't have. They relied on talent and perseverance.

  • Anji

    What genre of music? Singing makes the human heart joyful. Everyone should try it.

  • Anji

    This is an affront as it's also Black History Month. Shameful.

  • Music

    She's sick....maybe that's why she wanted to lip sync. Completely understandable. Why embarrass yourself whenever you know that your voice is under the weather?!

  • Indies beauty

    But Brandy's voice tho.....

  • WiseGui

    Thank you.

  • WiseGui

    Brandy must’ve rubbed someone the wrong way because that Daily Mail article is a bit personal. They slanted it in a way to make it look like she is not performing because she can’t lip sing when in reality she cancelled on doctors orders. Those are 2 different things, but you know the blogs have to get messy about repeating facts.

    On a side note I have seen Brandy sing live several times even in a cappella (without instruments). She’s a damn good singer and singers know that, which is why they labeled her as the vocal bible. Most people who think otherwise either don’t like her or don’t know what a vocal is.

  • WiseGui

    I forgot to add that during her live shows the only time a backing track is used is for the background vocals. She sings all her vocals as a true vocalist does.

  • iWasteTime

    Good Morning and Thank you for the suggestions. I know about Summer and excited to say Nakala's

  • Jesse

    Take your ass and YOUR opinion and shove it. I said what I said. Now keep it moving.

  • Bass

    Lol Sorry sweetheart, miss Brandy is not all that.

  • No Love Lost

    Lol Stfu. The audacity of you attacking people for their opinion. Brandy is not that great. And furthermore, she 100% correct with her assessment. The nerve.

  • No Love Lost

    I agree.

  • City girl

    ? Ummmm no. You Brandy fans are so delusional.

  • City girl

    No, everyone's entitled to their opinion. If some people think she can't sing, or isn't that good of a singer, than so be it. I for one think she's an ok singer. Her tone is just not my cup of tea.

  • City girl

    See you have your opinion, and people have there's. I for one think Monica can SANNNNG. As for Brandy, not so much.

  • WiseGui

    The greatest singers came from the church....Aretha Franklin, Patti Label, Whitney Houston etc
    The way you say “a good church director” as if that’s not a qualified coach. Matter of fact anyone in the industry who can sang learned so from the church.

  • Around the world

    ? The accuracy.

  • Around the world

    ?You just spewed a whole load of crap. Brandy is not pretty, nor is she that good a singer.

  • Miss Foxx

    Brandy BEEN corny

  • SpiceGirl

    I like Brandy.

  • IAmLegend

    What I do know is there is no such thing as "Grammies". Come talk to me when you can say you have Grammys. I also know that some of the best vocalists and vocal arrangers come from and are still in the church. Brandy has sang alongside some of the greatest musicians including Tony Bennett, Ray Charles, Chaka Khan, Gladys Knight and Whitney Houston to name a few. She is also a Grammy award winner and a Broadway actress. I'm pretty sure the demands of performing live 6 nights a week on Broadway more than qualify her status as a live singer.

  • IAmLegend

    She ain't thick no more tho. She lost that weight.

  • ShWa

    LOLOL wow....

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    She is always on the internet singing with people praising her

    Bible Vocals.
    Some Valium would have fixed that up nice & proper.

  • ConcernedCitizen

    I can understand having an opinion about Mariah and Whitney because there could be a legit argument made as to why one might think one is better than the other, but with Monica and Brandy there isn't even a comparison. YouTube brandy singing in her bathroom, or watch the numerous times they sang "it all belongs to me" live on various shows. When they were younger Monica had the stronger voice but as they aged, Bran boxed her out the ring. I'm not saying Monica can't sing, but I AM saying she's no Brandy. Every singer alone would say the same. There wouldn't be a single person in music who would say the Monica is better than Brandy. Not one. Except, maybe Jermaine Dupri, but he would be lying for loyalty's sake. ?

  • ConcernedCitizen

    I will once you return your purloined Nene quote. Clearly, you can't tell the difference between a Mercedes and a Honda witcha non-singin' ass. Can't hit a high note, a low note, or a middle note. One is called the vocal bible for a reason, and the other is called Monica for a reason. ?

  • ConcernedCitizen

    YouTube her singing in her bathroom, and her singing Whitney Houston medley. She sings shoop better than Whit, rest her soul. People remember young Brandy, who was still a beast even back then, but they aren't familiar with adult Brandy. Her talent has magnified. Tone, technique, control. Ain't nobody in the entire game on her level. All industry folks say it. They don't say it for nothing. Wishing her happy birthday, crediting her with creating runs that other people copy, Monica just said in an interview that Brandy is one of the greatest to have ever done it, calling her the vocal bible. That sounds like all that to me.

  • ConcernedCitizen

    Blah? This is why I'm upset with her camp. They didn't do the things that needed to do in order for the world to recognize who she really was, a complete and total legend. It would be like somebody born in 2005 saying Whitney Houston was "eh" without knowing her greatest performances or hearing her version of the star spangled banner. Brandy had to dumb down her gift for the radio. YouTube her singing in her bathroom, and prepare to be completely amazed. Nobody...Nobody is on her level. Again...Nobody.

  • ConcernedCitizen

    That actually means nothing in terms of skill that your nephew coached Brandy, if that's even true. Brandy is better than your nephew, and your nephew could be better than you. Michael Jordan had a coach, but we all know the coach wasn't the greatest basketball player of all time. But, let's pretend your nephew did coach her ?. What's his info for the people who wanna learn how to sing? ?

  • ConcernedCitizen

    Both of y'all are audience members who have never been in a booth, or on a stage, or sang a note outside a shower. Singers know singers. They know crazy talk too. Brandy was asked by Michael Jackson to do background vocals at 14. She is the one person in the industry credited with creating ghost vocals. She was Whitney's favorite singer. Why do people call her the vocal bible? Why did Chris Brown say that Brandy is the best female vocalist. Industry people stay bigging her up. YouTube her singing in her bathroom so that you can see for yourself. You just haven't ever heard her flex. She is legit unmatched.

  • Dainese

    Lies.

  • No Love Lost

    Omg..stfu and go seek help.

    Bi/ch are you crazy? I don't give a fk about Brandy's non singing ass, nor do I give a fk about your groupie opinion. Now go find something constructive to do before I block your mentally disturbed ass.

  • City girl

    My opinion remains the same. Monica's voice is everything, Brandy's not so much.
    You take care though.

  • Bass

    ? You wrote a rebuttal that I could care less about. Once again, Brandy is not all that. Bye ?

  • No Love Lost

    LMAO What are you going through? I'll say it again. She's just blah. And you're going to have to deal with it. Girl you're a mess LOL.

  • Anji

    Not at all but even the best call in those who specialize with degrees on technique and how to avoid nodes and damage. We study body physiology and preserve the voices of great singers. We extend ranges and improve execution. I was a choral director for decades. But I also work in the industry and sing with symphony orchestras. Why...does it bother you that wonderful singers value their instruments enough to seek my expertise?

  • Anji

    I have always claimed TBI. Yet, minor details can't change the facts of my bio. Brandy is a great r&b singer. Never said she wasn't. She has one of the most flexible voices with a great ear that allows her to stick runs like she does. She was also pleasant to work with unlike many divas. I had my SAG card by age 5. Worked continuously until a run in with Cos, when I worked on his cartoon. I do not denigrate any vocalist with Brandy's longevity. A person's limited range never defines greatness. My membership in NARAS, SAG/AFTRA, Musician's Local 47 continues. I get paid while sleeping. I have been voting member for Grammys. Now...just what do You do for work?

  • ConcernedCitizen

    Some people are interested in staying at the bottom sitting on IKEA furniture. Youre one of those people. I can tell. "Naw, that thousand dollar leather couch ain't better than my 20 dollar faux mink fold out." Ok. ?. Bye to you also.

    The fact that you're a "city girl" explains so much. Tell Yung Miami and nem I said hello. ??

    So you're throwing shots like a child because we have different opinions. You have serious issues. Go seek help.

  • ConcernedCitizen

    You have a child-like understanding of vocals. You can like who you like. We all can. That's not the issue. Some things are just better. I prefer Rihanna, but I would never say she's a better performer than Beyonce, for example, just because she's my preference. I get that people prefer Monica, but she isn't better than Brandy. That's just a fact. ?

  • City girl

    Omg, you are seriously fked in the head and disturbing. I'll say this once again to your crazy bat shit ass (just like your ugly bat shit crazy ass fav) I prefer Monica's voice, and for the simple fact that it's better in my opinion. You have the right to think otherwise. And that's that. Now do yourself a favor and get a fking life. And if your dumb ass continues, i'll put your sad ass on the block list. It's as simple as that.

  • ConcernedCitizen

    What a filthy mouth you have there, city girl. Sheesh. Mom raised a sailor. ?

  • City girl

    And your mother raised a psychotic dumb bit,h. Now go read a book.

  • ConcernedCitizen

    Spoken like a true Monica fan. Hood, and aggressive. And, what would a city girl know about a book? ?

  • City girl

    LMAO wait what.

    "And what would a city girl know about a book"..

    LMAO This is the dumbest s#it I have ever heard.

    So a girl born and raised in the city/NYC doesn't know anything about a book? That comment alone speaks to the LEVEL of your mental illness. Typical Brandy stan. Not only is your fav mentally disturbed, but so are her fans. What a mess lol.

    That being said dumba##, you are now blocked.

  • ConcernedCitizen

    Ok, Yung Miami. You expect me to believe that you don't drink water, but that you read books? Likely story. And thank you for the block. Now, I'm blocked from talking to you like Monica is blocked from entering into the greatest vocalists of the generation conversation. ?? ?

  • City girl

    LMAO I was going to block your dumb***, but seeing you in your feelings about me not liking your ug/y @** fav's vocals, is entertaining.

  • Around the world

    ?? You're still in your feelings about people not liking Brandy's voice. Girl, if Brandy's voice is so amazing, why is it you never see her on any top vocalist list. Exactly. ?

    SHE IS NOT ALL THAT! And you're going to have to deal.

  • ConcernedCitizen

    Not in any top vocalist lists? She is the list.
    Who is called the vocal bible? That doesn't make you go, hmm, why is Brandy of all people called that? YouTube her singing in her bathroom, and then come back. YouTube celebs wishing her happy birthday. You have everybody from Jessie K to India Arie to Chris Brown to Jill Scott saying she's the best. Even Monica said Brandy is the best to have done it. Her skills just aren't widely known to regular, non singing people like yourself. The rest of us, though, hear the tone, technique, and notice the way that she colors a song that goes beyond what others can do.

  • Around the world

    ??? girl shut the hell up with that tired ass diatribe. Like I said, she is never on any top vocalist list, and your imaginary list proves just that. Bye ?

  • ConcernedCitizen

    Sir, your inability to observe things that exist right in front of your face is revealed. The article itself indicates that she was on the Kennedy Center's list. Stupid is the boomerang that always comes back. ?

  • Around the world

    ?? You are slow as fk. No one mentioned the Kennedy list you dolt. I'm speaking in terms of her not being listed on ANY top vocalist list. That being said, no matter how much of a fit you throw, Brandy is not all that. Bye ?

  • ConcernedCitizen

    You can't really tell me bye because you don't know if you're coming or going. You said bye before but didn't fully leave. You not gon' break my screen door with this in and out business. Let your departure be real this time so I can lock up. The Kennedy Center was looking for vocalists to sing songs. You think they made a list of bottom vocalists? Of course not because you would've gotten a call. Even a list of mediocre vocalists? Well, I know they didn't do that because then they would've sent an invitation to Monica. They made a list of top vocalists. That's why they called Bran. See, what stupid people do is what you did in your last comment, and what ignorant people do is hide behind laughing emojis because that somehow, in their book, adds credibility to what they are saying and hides the fact that they don't really know what they are talking about. Just say you aren't familiar with her ability, have no desire to inquire as to why she's called the vocal bible, and don't have YouTube. Those things would make more sense. Now, let me be dumb and ignorant like you. ????

  • Around the world

    ???Awww you're still upset boo ? Once again, I don't care who they called, Brandy has never appeared on ANY top vocalist list. That being said, you can pout and throw as many hissyfits as you like, but it won't change that she isn't all that, and you're just going to have to DEAL ?
