  • Tweet’s rise to fame was no smooth ride -- but it did include building blocks from Jodeci’s DeVante, partying with Whitney Houston, and a life-saving friendship with Missy Elliott.

    everybody that come hit rock bottom don't know how to survive in this world didn't want to commit suicide know it was nobody else voice with yours. it never fails every time somebody wants to do some type of bodily harm to their self it's always because they don't have funds, etc. It all comes down to you wanting to give up your life for something you have or can't get back... I don't have no sympathy for suicidal people.... I keep trying to find sympathy but the moment they start speaking they just pissed me off...

    Thank You Tweet for sharing your truth, I am a visual and fabric artist , your story sounds like what many artists and I have and happen to be going though right now, I so needed to hear this right now tonight, I drew a beautiful portrait of Missy back in 2000 (I love Missy)❤️❤️❤️and I showed Mrs. Mona Scott, when my three children and I lived in NYC, I been doing my art off and on, because life happens we been through homelessness in NYC , my art was going to be on the Dave Chapelle Show but, I found out that I had breast cancer fame didn’t matter at that point I needed to live for my three young children and moved back home to Nashville Tennessee ,I had met so many people, notables, celebrities and many good people, I had spurts of success , been on tv, radio newspapers and then something else bad would happen but God is faithful, now my children are grown and I have six beautiful grandchildren, I am going to do this I got this thank you and I thank God for you Ms. Tweet continued blessings to you, your family ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️😘 my Angel💕💕💕💕

    The thing about background vocals making a song complete or something along those lines couldn’t be more real! Background vocals can make a song what it is and nobody will even notice.

    I love you tweet. I remember listening to your songs just to learn and hear harmonies. You are an amazing singer and I've been a fan for decades. I pray that peace will surround you and that this new album will break the curse. You are respected and appreciated. Its unfortunate about Panama city. FEMA just doesn't know how to get it right, Katrina should have been a large enough learning moment to effect change....💚💪 but on the real, you inspire me even in my little moments of trying to pursue my gift and getting discouraged.

    On another note my family is also still dealing with the aftermath of Michael, Panama City as well. I knew it wouldn’t be talked about for long too. A week or so, then it’s on to something else. Makes me really upset honestly. 😐😐

    Omg Tweet, Tone's "Lord make me over" brought me up & outta my black place one day too! It was at a time where I thought I was at the end of my rope, but thank God for grace & that song bcoz i found my way back.....Tweet you have been my girl since the time I first heard your beautiful voice and you'll always be one of my faves and OMG i say that "My ears bleed" too😂😂😂 But you're right, alot of the music today can be repetitive.....It would be soooo gr8 to be able to go back to the days when R&B was true R&B! No name calling, no beefing, no hate just uplifting amazing music that we were so blessed to have and even grew up listening to.......

    One of the most unrated artist EVER. Truly God given talent and so beautiful. Her voice is of old, when black singer really knew how to sing. And i totally agree what she is says about how most singer nowadays sound all the same. I saw her last year in the UK London what an amazing performance. I only wished she was the main headliner. Please come back to London soon, but this time your own show.
