Toni Braxton to Star in Lifetime Movie “Unbreak My Heart”
Born in Severn, Maryland in the late 1960s, Toni Braxton has shaped the world of R&B. She quickly climbed to fame in the 1990s with smash hits such as “Un-break My Heart”, “He Wasn’t Man Enough” and “Breathe Again”. Her music career has been wildly successful through the years as she has charmed audiences with her deep, sultry voice time and time again. The singer has won seven Grammy awards, sold approximately 67 million albums and so much more!
Recently, the Lifetime network gave permission for the singing starlet to create a television movie of her life story. Not only will the plot reveal her journey into music, fame and success but it will also delve into the depths of her personal life and struggles. She is ready to share her intense battle with lupus, the heartbreaking divorce from Keri Lewis, her financial struggles, her son’s battle with autism and family troubles in general. Perhaps this will be an opportunity to see the power behind many of her deeply emotional ballads?
Ironically, the Lifetime movie is set to be called, “Un-break My Heart”. Don’t worry folks; the theme song will most likely be the hit song of the same name. Braxton is rumored to not only star in the film as herself but also work as an executive producer. The director title has been assigned to Vondie Curtis Hall and the writer of “Two and a Half Men”, Susan McMartin, is creating the script and storyline.
Many believe that we are about to see the running force behind the creation of that powerful ballad, “Un-break My Heart”. Quite honestly, Toni Braxton has been breaking my heart with her strong and sorrowful voice for years. It’s near impossible to listen to her incredibly unique voice without dropping a tear! Throughout her songs, it’s been evident that personal pain has fueled their creation. I don’t know about you, but I am curious to see what her life movie will unfold. After all, I think many people have known this would eventually come to fruition.
