Toni Braxton was born the oldest of five chldren in familly of minister on October 7, 1967 in Severen, Maryland. Because her parents were very religious, Toni grew up singing in the choir at her father's church. She was not allowed to were pants untill high school and forbidden to listen to secular music or watch shows such as Soul Train. Although she was forbidden to listen to secular music. Toni's fondest memories are of "sneaking to watch Soul Train whenever my parents weren't around. " It was these glimpses of secular music that influenced Toni's singing style. It also influenced her skills as a pianist and song writer. Toni graduated from Gien Burnie High School and went on to study teaching at Bowie State University before embarking on her musical career.
Toni made her professional music debut in 1992, on the Boomerang soundtrack. Her comtribution was entitled "Give U My Heart", a duet with producer/recording artiet Babyface.

Babyface's "There's No Me without You" one of her personal favorites, has a simple, plaintive acoustic feel.

Vocally HOT | Reviewer: Adetoyan Poetic | 6/9/12
Tony Braxton is blessed wth a SCINTILATINGLY SOOTHING yet 'HOT' voice. She is fond of making sweet sonorous sounds with single syllables.. Uwss & Ahhs
Toni Braxton is gifted with a voice that is delectably desired..
As it is, despite all her AMAZING vocal renditions I dont believe America has given her due respect to the extent she deserves.. vocal-wise.
I believe it's a clear sign that she should stick to gospel music & use her AMAZINGLY STRONG & SOOTHING voice to glorify God.
I love your music | Reviewer: Ige Oludele Emmanuel | 7/26/11
she came from good family and God gave her talent to be a great singer.Though,she started her carer from Church choir but she decided to go to secular music,where her stars open to the whole world.God will continue to strenghting her.
I LOVE YOUR PERSONALITY TONI, | Reviewer: THE LOVER | 11/21/10
EXCEPT, that I am the biggest fan of Toni Braxton, I am also a lover to Toni, she have been in my heart since she came out in 1992, now 18 years after, I love Toni overall, She became a partof my life.....
To Toni ...,
An angel asked me "why are you sad?", thinking of you I answered "because I miss her", then I heard the angel giggle...I looked up and began to smile and said "oh, it's you!"
God gave us two ears to hear, two eyes to see and two hands to hold. But why did God give us only one heart? Because he wants us to find the other one.
Toni, Think about my words and you can always write back to my email.. firstname.lastname@example.org

I was one of Toni's good friends in school. By the way, it is Glen Burnie Sr. High in Maryland of the same town. If you are reading this, Toni, take a look at your yearbook and see B.L. You have the ability to find me. My mom talks about your days at Bowie often. Hope you get and stay on the right track. Say hi if you ever make it to one of my tourneys.

Is she reslly the best? | Reviewer: Lennon Emmanuel | 5/28/08
Not trying to take anything away from Braxton, I very much respect her career achivements and how she conducts her personal life. The question that I have is that is she really good as we are made to believe by the highly commercialised corporate media in your country? I've listened to her songs with the exception of a few (Breathe Again & The Time Of Our Lives, to mention some) her music is just typical 'overmarketed mediocre music'. What you guys in the States have learned to do is to make high quality crap that you glamourise and you force it down upon us here in the third world countries because we are fascinated by your way of life. Just to prove my point take examples of R.Kelly (from TP3) and Lil Wayne. Toni has got great potential to make great music. She needs to go back to Breathe Again and retrace her footstep from there.
Wonderful singer!!!! | Reviewer: Brianna | 5/25/08
Toni Braxton is honestly one of the best r&b singers of all time!! She deserves way more credit than she gets. I love all of her songs. She is so amazing and I love her voice. Unlike a lot of female singers, she sings about real things.
