Toni Braxton Tickets for Sale
Toni Braxton was one of the most popular and commercially successful female R&B singers of the '90s, thanks to her ability to straddle seemingly opposite worlds. Braxton was soulful enough for R&B audiences, but smooth enough for adult contemporary; sophisticated enough for adults, but sultry enough for younger listeners; strong enough in the face of heartbreak to appeal to women, but ravishing enough to nab the fellas. Wielding such broad appeal, Braxton managed to score not one, but two albums that sold over eight million copies; naturally, they were accompanied by a long string of hit singles on the pop and R&B charts, one of which — "Un-break My Heart" — ranks among the longest-running number one pop hits of the rock era.
7 October 1968, Severn, Maryland, USA. Braxton, with her four sisters, was signed to Arista Records in 1990 as the Braxtons. It was their 'The Good Life' single that brought them to the attention of producers L.A. And Babyface, who provided her with solo successes such as 'Another Sad Love Song' and 'You Mean The World To Me'. Though she was widely touted as the 'new Whitney Houston' (a fate that befell many female vocalists in the 90s), her vocal talent also found an audience in dance music circles. Her debut album went on to sell more than two million copies, and she won a Grammy for Best New Artist in 1993. Secrets repeated the success of her debut, particularly in her homeland where it spent 92 weeks on the chart. The album also spawned the transatlantic hit singles 'You're Makin' Me High' and 'Un-break My Heart'. She won Female Rhythm & Blues Artist Of The Year at the 1997 Billboard Music Awards. Surprisingly, in light of her previous commercial success, Braxton filed for bankruptcy in January 1998 following litigation with her record company. She returned in style two years later with The Heat which included the Rodney Jerkins-penned Top 5 hit 'He Wasn't Man Enough', and a duet with Dr. Dre on 'Just Be A Man About It'. More Than A Woman featured some production work from Jerkins and the Neptunes.
