Personalities | Toni Braxton | Nineties | Rock

(Vocals, b. 1968)

Initially singing with her sisters as The Braxtons, she was signed as a solo artist to La Face productions (L.A. Reid and Babyface) in 1991. This production/writing team crafted her eponymous debut (1993). At ease with soul vocals and the rhythms of R&B, the attractive Braxton was soon scoring hits with emotive ballads like ‘Breathe Again’. ‘Un-Break My Heart’ was a massive international strike in 1996 and all subsequent albums confirm her mainstream chart credentials. She has since dropped her last name in diva-esque style.
