Toni Braxton Quitting Music To Pursue Acting

02/15/2013
.
(Radio.com) With six Grammys to her name and over 66 million albums sold, Toni Braxton's soulful voice has been a fixture in R&B music for over two decades. But now the singer says she's ready to walk away from it all to become a Hollywood starlet.

Braxton revealed to NBC's The Grio that she plans to retire from music so she can focus on landing more acting roles on the big and small screens.

"For what I do I have to love it. I have to feel that excitement and it's gone," Braxton said. "I'm just not going to do any albums anymore; maybe touring occasionally here and there because I love performing, but not as much as I did in the past. But no new projects."

The singer, who currently stars in her own reality show Braxton Family Values on WE, recently starred in the Lifetime Original Movie Twist of Faith, and is eager to land more roles beyond her reality series.

"I hate to have 'reality star' behind my name," Braxton said. "That's just not what I wanted to be when I grew up." more on this story
