Toni Michelle Braxton (born October 7, 1967) is an American singer, songwriter, pianist, record producer, actress, television personality, and philanthropist. She began performing with her sisters in a family group known as The Braxtons in the late 1980s, who were signed to Arista Records.

Braxton attracted the attention of producers Antonio "L.A." Reid and Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, later recording a series of songs for them before being signed to their Arista-distributed imprint, LaFace Records. Her self-titled debut studio album (1993) reached number one on the Billboard 200 chart in the United States, selling 10 million copies worldwide and seeing the international success of the singles "Another Sad Love Song" and "Breathe Again". The album brought Braxton three Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist.

Secrets (1996), Braxton's second studio album, saw continued commercial success, selling 15 million copies and generating the singles "You're Makin' Me High" and "Un-Break My Heart", which became her first singles to reach the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States. Secrets brought Braxton an additional two Grammy Awards, for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album.
Welcome to Toni Braxton artist survivor!

One was held ten years ago, and this is how top ten looked like:

Code: Select all
1. He Wasn't Man Enough
2. Un-Break My Heart
3. You're Makin' Me High
4. Breathe Again
5. Please
6. Another Sad Love Song
7. You Mean The World To Me
8. There's No Me Without You
9. Love Should Brought You Home
10. Let It Flow


We'll see if UKMix's taste changed in ten years!

Will ‘I Heart You’ be included automatically?

It was a collab with Babyface as primary artist, and it was not included on any of her studio albums, so I put it in the nominations round instead.

I Heart You was a standalone solo single, so it will be included.

The album tracks I do nominate are:

And I Love You
I’m Still Breathing
Let Me show You The Way (Out)
The Heat


I applaud the fact you limit the number of choices, Gravity. It makes this survivor more compact.
Baby, hell no, that's not the way it goes. It's all about me tonight.

^^ The Heat and LMSYTW are already nominated, so you're allowed to pick another two, if you want to. :)

Toni has a huge discography, it would be impossible to include them all but I feel like we will have a bunch of songs anyway, with all the nominations.

Breathe Again is shockingly high. :o

Personally, I always felt like this particular single track lacked great melody and feeling. But I'm like the only person in the world who feels like that according to last survivor's results. :lol:

Breathe Again is one of the best songs she ever did. It was her debut single in Europe and it made me fell in love with her. It's also still one of her biggest hits ever. It will always be special to me.
