Toni Braxton – Un-Break My Heart (LaFace Records)

Born in Severn, MD, Toni Braxton began performing by the end of the 80’s as The Braxtons along with her 4 sisters (Tamar, Traci, Towanda, Traci and Trina), delivering their debut-single back in 1990 on Arista. A cut titled ‘Good Life’ which, despite the poor reaction it received, got to the attention of Atlanta-based famous production pair L.A. & Babyface who eventually offered her to record a demo before signing her on their own label.
Toni‘s self-titled debut-album got released in 1993, selling over 10 million copies worldwide and getting her to earn 3 Grammy Awards. Its follow up, ‘Secrets’, released 3 years after, sold even more, spawning the Billboard #1 hits ‘You’re Makin’ Me High’ and the David Foster penned ‘Un-Break My Heart’ featuring Shanice Wilson as a backing singer, which became her signature song, delivered with an alternative remixed version by the likes of the late Frankie Knuckles
