JEDDAH: American singer-songwriter Toni Braxton returned to Dubai on Thursday after her successful UAE debut performance at the Dubai World Cup in 2012.
The multiple Grammy Award-winning artist wowed fans with some of her bestsellers during her two-hour long performance at the Dubai Duty Free Stadium.
“I want to thank you beautiful people for spending the evening with me in this fantastic place. Dubai is one of the best cities in the world and I am so happy to be here tonight. I love you guys,” the songstress said.
Braxton is known across the world for being a multi-talented individual who, along with an acting, producing and television career, has sold millions of copies of her songs across the world since her start in the late 1980s.
Braxton first burst onto the scene in 1993 when her debut, self-titled album topped the US Billboard charts and became a top ten hit in Australia, Canada, Germany and the UK.
The album sold over 10 million copies worldwide and went eight times platinum in the US alone, spurred along by the success of the singles “Another Sad Love Song,” “Breathe Again” and “You Mean the World to Me.”
The success continued for Braxton when she topped the charts with “You’re Makin’ Me High” and “Un-Break My Heart,” which would become her most successful songs around the world.
Braxton’s third studio album “The Heat” was another hit for the artist, made famous by the single “He Wasn’t Man Enough.” More recently Braxton has returned to the charts with 2005’s “Libra,” “Pulse” in 2010 and “2014’s ‘Love, Marriage & Divorce” which went as high as No. 4 in the US.
