About Toni Braxton:
The distinctive, sultry vocals of seven-time Grammy Award®-winning recording artist Toni Braxton, singer, songwriter, record producer, actress and philanthropist, have been celebrated internationally ever since she was first introduced to the world by Babyface and L.A. Reid in 1992. Her self-titled debut album released the next year was a 10 million-selling phenomenon that generated Toni’s first Grammys® in 1994, for Best New Artist and Best Female R&B Vocal (“Another Sad Love Song”). The album’s longevity led Toni to win her second Best Female R&B Vocal Grammy® the following year (for “Breathe Again”). Her second album, Secrets arrived in ’96, and history repeated itself with 15 million worldwide sales. At the Grammy Awards® in 1997, Toni became only the second woman in history (beside Dionne Warwick) to win Best Female Pop Vocal (“Unbreak My Heart”) and Best Female R&B Vocal (“You’re Makin’ Me High”) in the same year. She returned to the Grammy® podium in 2001, to claim another Best Female R&B Vocal award (“He Wasn’t Man Enough,” from the double-platinum album The Heat). In 2015, Toni won a Grammy for “Best R&B Album,” for Love, Marriage & Divorce duet outing with Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds.
Into the millennium, Toni blossomed into an acting career with Broadway musical roles in “Beauty and the Beast,” “Aida,” and “After Midnight” and a dramatic turn in the Lifetime movies “Twist of Faith,” “Unbreak My Heart” (based on her novel,) and “Faith Under Fire.” She and her sisters currently enjoy huge success in Braxton Family Values, one of WE tv’s flagship reality series, returning for its sixth season. Raising her two sons Denim and Diezel, Toni balances her career demands with the high priorities of family, health, public service, and charity work, particularly on behalf of the two diseases that have impacted her family directly: She is living with Lupus and her youngest child is living with Autism. Early detection and intervention has helped both Braxtons to be role models on how to live normal lives with these conditions. Toni is also a proud spokesperson for Autism Speaks and an Ambassador to the UN.
