Music of Toni Braxton with Marty Duda

From Nine To Noon, 11:06 am on 16 September 2015

After recording with her sisters as The Braxtons, Toni Braxton stepped out on her own, appearing on the soundtrack to Eddie Murphy's Boomerang film in 1992 under the direction of LA Reid and Babyface. Toni Braxton's self-titled debut album was released in 1993 and became one of the biggest sellers of the decade thanks to hits like 'Another Sad Love Song' and 'Breathe Again'. Her second album - 1996's Secrets - cemented her reputation as a premiere '90s diva, producing 'Un-Break My Heart', one of the longest-running number one pop hits on the Billboard singles charts. Braxton's career has had its ups and down since then, including filing for bankruptcy twice. Her latest release, 2014's Love, Marriage & Divorce, finds her reunited with Babyface, duetting with the acclaimed producer/composer on all 11 tracks. Toni Braxton is due to perform in Auckland for the first time at the Logan Campbell Centre on Thursday 17 September.
