Toni Braxton Biography
Toni Michelle Braxton was born on October 7, 1967, in Severn, Maryland. She comes from a religious and musical family. Her parents Michael and Evelyn were involved with their local Methodist church as a clergyman and pastor. Braxton’s dad also worked at the power company. Her mother was a former opera singer and worked in a beauty salon. Toni’s maternal grandfather was also a pastor. She is the oldest of six siblings with one brother (Michael, 1968) and four younger sisters (Traci 1971, Towanda 1973, Trina 1974, and Tamar 1977). Braxton’s first singing performance was in her church choir. She enrolled in college at Bowie State University in Maryland with the intention of becoming a teacher. However, after composer and producer William Pettaway Jr. heard her singing to herself while she was pumping gas, he convinced her to give a singing career a shot.
In the late 1980s, Braxton and her sisters former The Braxtons and signed a deal with Arista Records in 1989. The group released their first single, “Good Life,” in 1990. The song didn’t find traction on the radio, however, it did get the attention of producers Antonio “L.A.” Reid and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds. The duo asked Toni to record a demo tape of the song “Love Shoulda Brought You Home,” a tune they wrote for Anita Baker to sing on the soundtrack of the Eddie Murphy movie “Boomerang.” Baker suggested that Braxton sing it instead. Toni’s version was included on the final soundtrack along with a duet between Braxton and Edmonds’. L.A. and Babyface signed Braxton to their LaFace records and got right to work on her debut solo album.
“Toni Braxton” was released in July 1993 and peaked at number one on the albums chart. “Another Sad Love Song,” the first single from Toni’s debut alum, was the very first number one song on the then brand new Adult R&B charts. Braxton’s debut album spawned five singles and won three Grammy Awards including Best New Artist and two consecutive awards for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance. In the summer of 1996, Braxton released her second album “Secrets.” It is her most successful album to date. The first single “You’re Makin’ Me High,” was Braxton’s first number one hit on the Hot 100 charts. The second single, “Un-Break My Heart, became the biggest hit of Braxton’s career, thanks in part to Diane Warren’s masterful songwriting and composing. The song spent 11 weeks at the top of the Hot Dance Singles chart.
2002’s “More Than a Woman,” 2005’s “Libra,” and 2010’s “Pulse” were all released during a period of health issues and contract disputes for Braxton. Braxton and Babyface released “Love, Marriage, & Divorce,” in 2014. The album won them the Grammy Award for Best R&B Album in 2015. “Sex & Cigarettes,” Braxton’s ninth album, was released in 2018.
Starting in 1998, Braxton made her Broadway debut as Belle in “Beauty and the Beast.” Alan Menken wrote a new song for the iconic musical especially for Braxton called “A Change in Me.” Toni left the production of “Beauty and the Beast” in 1999.
Braxton has also dipped her toes in the water of reality TV with “Braxton Family Values,” which has aired on WeTV since 2011 and “Tamar and Vince,” which stars her youngest sister Tamar.
