With a career that spans over 20 years, 60 million+ albums sold, 7 Grammys, and countless other honors, R&B veteran Toni Braxton is long overdue a worthy tribute. Thanks to the good folks at Essence, that time finally came this weekend.
Billed as one of the festival’s “must see events,” some of R&B’s most prized acts were assembled to pay homage to the singer’s life and times, which includes her critically acclaimed discography and ongoing philanthropic efforts in support of Lupus and Autism research and funding.
Calling on the talents of Kelly Price, Eric Benet, Kenny Lattimore, and, of course, Braxton’s talented sisters Traci, Towanda, Tamar, and Trina to serenade, attendees were escorted down memory lane to the sounds of Toni’s memorable hits ‘Breathe Again,’ ‘Unbreak My Heart,’ ‘Another Sad Love Song,’ and more.
