Trelawny, Jamaica; With six Grammy Awards earned among her accolades, Toni Braxton has had a magnificent career in music and she will bring a touch of glamour when her diva persona hits the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival stage on Friday, January 31 at the Trelawny Multi-purpose Stadium.
When last the sultry musical dynamo was in Jamaica she gave a scintillating performance. Now she is back on Friday, January 31 to remind fans why she was a household name in the ’90s.
Braxton reunited with old flame, former manager and mentor Kenneth ‘Babyface’ Edmonds for an album, Love, Marriage & Divorce set to drop on February 4, days after her Jazz performance.
The well decorated vocalist revealed to Essence Magazine earlier this year, “I think because Babyface and I have both gone through divorces, we can relate and we can collaborate together on this topic and make it so others who have gone through this situation can relate,” the Un-break My Heart singer said.
The refined jazz-inspired beauty, Chrisette Michele, who is currently signed to Motown Records, is also set to marvel on Friday night. Michele has done collaborations with big names in the industry such as The Game, Jay-Z, and Nas and has appeared on Ghostface Killah’s The Big Doe Rehab bonus track, Slow Down.
Chrisette Michele has already secured a Grammy under her belt, being awarded for Best Urban/Alternative Performance in 2009 for her song be OK. The jazzy songstress came to prominence in 2007 with her debut album I Am which quite fittingly introduced her music to mainstream audiences worldwide.
