Toni Braxton has never shied away from experimenting with her roles. The singer, who shot to fame, opted to be an actor, then turned producer with her film ‘Every Day Is Christmas,’ has been making waves.
Toni Braxton has been nominated for Grammys again for her latest album, but these days the singer is also focusing on acting — and lexing her producing muscles. “I ind that I really love everything about ilm and ilm-making,” the multiplatinum-singer said in a recent interview. “I just really love movies, whether TV or anything that’s dealing with ilm.” Braxton, a seventime Grammy winner nominated for two more Grammys earlier this month for her latest album “Sex & Cigarettes,” is currently starring in “Every Day Is Christmas” on Lifetime. Inspired by the Charles Dickens classic, “A Christmas Carol,” the movie centres around Alexis Taylor, played by Braxton, as she gets the holiday visit of a lifetime. (“Every Day is Christmas” is re-airing on Lifetime on Saturday and on Christmas Day.) A self-proclaimed workaholic who “humbugs” love, Alexis ends up embracing the spirit of Christmas when her past, present, and future collide, forcing her to risk the one thing money can’t buy: her heart. “I love Christmas movies,” she said. “Holiday time makes me feel happy and festive and excited. I got a three-picture deal at Lifetime and I thought a Christmas movie would be the perfect way to come out and introduce it.” But not only is she working hard in front of the camera, she’s putting in sweat equity behind it. Braxton serves as an executive producer on the movie. She said she got “a little taste” of executive producing over the years “but now that I’ve bitten the apple, I want the whole thing.” Braxton’s first film role was in 2001’s “Kingdom Come.” Since then, she’s starred in several TV movies, including her own biopic, 2016’s “Toni Braxton: Un-Break My Heart” and “Faith Under Fire” which premiered earlier this year. But longtime fans shouldn’t be worried that Toni is swapping her music for movies. Why? “Because love it so much,” Braxton exclaimed. “It’s my favourite performing.” thing to do herself Toni Braxton a tadpole calls trying to be a frog. However, millions of fans would not agree. The hit song “Un-Break My Heart” alone made the singer the global star and brought top positions in music hit parades and the Grammy Awards. According to Billboard Hot 100, this composition is the most successful single in the history of the chart. Toni sang from a young age. She quit her college to pursue her singing career professionally. William E. Pettaway, Jr. discovered her after he found her singing in a fuel station. This changed her life. Although her first single with her sisters were not successful, she moved on positively. She kept on working hard. Consequently, her debut studio self-titled album made a huge breakthrough in her career. The album sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. Similarly, she went on to release other albums like, “Secrets,” The Heat,” “Snowlakes,” and “Libra” in later years.
