These Sisters Are Fighting, But This One Crazy Trick Actually Worked?! Wow.
Music has a strange power to bring together even most unlikely people and has been around since before the written word. From Gregorian chants to soulful hymns, harmonies and lyrics have carried the thoughts and feelings of humans for centuries, and whether you are young or old, or separated by entire oceans, a song can bring people closer in a way that talking simply can’t.
In the midst of a family feud on an episode of Braxton Family Values, the famous Braxton sisters couldn’t see a way out of their arguments. Not until their Bishop, Bishop Jakes decided that what the sisters needed the most was to come together through song. Reluctantly, the sisters choose a song that they have practiced for years, and you can see the moment when they realized that they needed to reconnect and love each other again.
“Our sisterhood just seems to just automatically mesh together again,” after singing, Trina says to the camera after the impromptu performance. Their mother had tears in her eyes as well, and it was like a huge weight had lifted off of all of their shoulders. Whatever difficulties they faced, they could surely face them together.
“That’s what families to. We can laugh, and love, and lift each other up. That’s how we survive.” The Bishop preached after the song, and the women really seemed to take his words to heart.
