Lifetime are revving up their their latest biopic. This time’s it’s the turn of iconic songstress Toni Braxton.

Aptly titled ‘Toni Braxton: Unbreak My Heart,’ the original made-for-TV movie now has an official debut date of Saturday, January 23 at 8pm ET/PT.

Newcomer Lex Scott Davis (‘The Exes’) has landed the role of the seven-time Grammy Award-winning R&B diva in the flick which follows the singer’s journey from her discovery by mega producers L.A. Reid and Babyface, to her battle with Lupus.

The two-hour movie, which is executive produced by Braxton, also chronicles how the songbird soared above her public divorce, while navigating her son’s autism and family struggles. It brings to life her well-selling memoir (also titled ‘Unbreak My Heart’), which hit retail last year.

Vote: Who Should Be The 2015 BET Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient?

tgj-2015 bet award recipient

Exactly two weeks separate us from the 2015 BET Awards!

Airing live on June 28th, the 15th annual showing of Urban entertainment’s biggest night is set to be hosted by ‘black-ish’ stars Tracee Ellis Ross & Anthony Anderson and (to date) has seen Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar, and Chris Brown announced among stars tapped to hit the stage.

But, per usual, BET is saving for last its announcement of who will be the recipient of the coveted Lifetime Achievement Award.  Already listing legendary acts like Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan, Patti Labelle, Prince, and Lionel Richie among its honorees, the 2015 trophy has been shrouded in murmurs that pop queen Janet Jackson will be its designated awardee.  But, that hasn’t stopped fans of other music royals – Queen of Hip Hop Soul Mary J. Blige, King of R&B R. Kelly, or Queen of Rock N’ Soul Tina Turner – from vying and eyeing the prize.

Alas, with no official confirmation, we turn to you – That Grape Juice faithful – for your weigh in:

Who should be the recipient of the 2015 BET Lifetime Achievement Award?

&

Should the award ever go to a recipient posthumously?
