Toni Braxton, The GREATEST Voice!!!#1
Posted: 8/21/07 at 7:57pm
I was just curious to know if anyone has any of Toni Braxton's songs from Aida and Beauty and the Beast. They are almost imposible to find. I have been looking for a long time, can anyone help me out? Also, has anyone heard if Toni is coming back to Broadway, or staying in Vegas?

Thanks

I have some of her sweat in a vial. Will that help?

I read she has extended in Vegas through February. Don't know what comes after that.

I saw her peform on REGIS AND KELLY with Will Chase when she was in AIDA. It may be on YouTube somewhere.

She has a nice voice, but it was the wrong range for the song. I think she did "Written in the Stars," and the song felt flat and entirely lacking in passion. Again, that had more to do with the range the show was originally written than her actual talents.

Have you heard the cast recording for Aida? Cause if you were blown away by Toni Braxton's version, then you will hopefully enjoy them sung by someone with the correct vocal range. I like her voice and all, but was not impressed with that particular performance. Especially the "acting."

^ If she can't sing live, why was she cast in 2 leading roles on Broadway that demand a strong vocalist?

I love Toni but most of the reviewers in Vegas are saying that her voice is not as strong and she does not hit all the old notes. The show is doing well, but most people I know who have seens the Vegas review (also huge Toni fans) were underwhelmed.

I've always thought she sounds flat - consistently.

Wow- I have never seen her live but I don't even love her voice on record. I couldn't imagine seeing her playing either of those roles. And Heather Headley gave a performance of a lifetime.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

I saw her Vegas show and agree that her voice live isn't quite as strong as it used to be/isn't as great live. I think the problem is that sometimes she has such a deep voice that it's hard to even hear her (at least with the Vegas show).
