    Toni Braxton, biggest female singer of 1997, just filed for bankruptcy. Oprah knew that was an opportunity too good to miss

    Any broke celebrity that appears on the Oprah show immediately makes Oprah look like she's doing them a favor. That impression alone makes people believe in the power of her brand as a business entity (and it becomes even stronger). It has worked for her for the longest time. It's just that social media today and those people who aren't drawn to her make people see the other side of things.

    Oprah is running a business. Toni was a good topic for discussion. Toni agreed. Oprah gave her advise based on her experience and success. It is what it is. I would have also done what Oprah did if I were a business person. If there is something willingly to capitalize on, I’d grab the opportunity.

    It's more of an opportunist than a friend.

    If Toni never saw her as a friend, she would have declined the interview to bare her financial issues amongst other things (and thats what Oprah’s talk show was all about).

    Good for you!

    I hope she has an Asian tour. I know she's not well at times but I hope she tours more often.

    Ok. The concert was amazing. Toni skipped the eras for MTAW, Pulse and Libra.
    But she was a vocal beast live. She gave her own classic voice interpretation to her songs and I think that’s what made it great. It was not a copy and paste.

    I wonder why she hasn’t released a live DVD?

    The opening act SWV however was phenomenal. Each of the girls still have THAT voice. Coco gave us those high notes and she was amazing. Toni was excellent but I’d prefer SWV from a live band perspective.

    ^ Good to hear you enjoyed the concert. Shame she didn't sing Please though. One of my favorite songs. Did she sing Yesterday?

    I also enjoyed SWV when they performed as the front act for TLC. They actually performed so many songs live as compared to TLC which mostly were pre-recorded.

    I just watched her concert online. I am a bit disappointed with some segments where she just lets the fans sing the song for her. She does it way too much. However, she really has so much stage presence, she is such a storyteller with her performances, she really commands the attention.

    The best part of the show was when she talked about Lil' Kim asking her to sing on her wedding, and that Toni thought it was a terrible idea since she never had happy love songs in her catalog. I didn't know that Toni was that funny, I always thought she was the most serious Braxton sister.

    I am blown away with the quality of her voice. She still has it live. The sad thing is that she gets easily tired, maybe it's really because of her health condition.

    In fact seeing her live, she did not do it as much as Beyonce. In comparison.
    Where did you watch it online?

    It's on YouTube. You can't compare Toni to Beyoncé. Toni doesn't dance all throughout and she sings her songs 100% live. Beyoncé dances the whole time and she has a backing track to save her.

    So here's the setlist:
    https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/toni-...-2b951066.html

    I have to say - SWV opened and they were great. Babyface's set was AWESOME and he brought out El DeBarge. They played together.

    Toni came out and... was bad. She was plagued with sound issues and spent half of the time talking/telling stories that were hard to understand. People were boo-ing a lot. When she did sing a song, she would spend half the time pointing the microphone to the audience and asking them to sing.

    It was REAL bad. So sad. I, like many others in the audience, will not pay to see her again live. Happy to listen to the studio recordings, but that's it.

    Sad to hear. I feel grateful for having seen her live in concert when she was on top of her game.

    This is also my issue with her lately. I watched her concert online and she wasn't singing the songs, she just kept telling. I think she is not at her best, but she still has her voice. It's just that she gets tired so easily (due to her condition).

    I felt the exact opposite. It wasn’t just about singing for the crowd. She has so many good songs but her set list was ace. I loved her interactions with the crowd via stories and singing back to her. All round it was great in my opinion. I won’t see artists live in a hurry but I will definitely pay up to see her. $320 well spent in DC!
