After almost quitting the music industry- Toni Braxton rebounds with a Grammy win!

I am so happy for singers Toni Braxton and Babyface. The pair nabbed a Grammy win for "R&B Album Of the Year" 'Love, Marriage & Divorce'. The album faced Norwegian R&B singer Jarle Bernhoft, jazz pianist Robert Glasper, soul-pop crooner Aloe Blacc and Sharon Jones. Aloe Blacc had a MAJOR year, so this category was really competitive.

Fans of the Braxton Family Values reality show will remember that the 46 year old songstress almost walked away from the music industry citing that the fact that her heart wasn't in it anymore. It was her longtime producer and friend Babyface who persuaded her otherwise. She told the LA Times last year - "I wasn't using my voice — I was using the voice others told me to use. It was a dark period. But [Babyface] was the person who snapped me out of it. He said, 'Toni, you're forgetting you're an artist. Stop being a business manager and tell people your story.'
Such sweet redemption! Congrats Toni & Babyface!
