Although Toni Braxton had been working in the music industry as far back as the early nineties, not much was known about her family. Not only is she talented, but she is also an award winner. She has won seven Grammy Awards, nine Billboard Music Awards, seven American Music Awards, among numerous others. Her sister, Tamar, is also just as talented as her as she used to be Toni's backup singer.
People got the full knowledge of her personal life and family when she was on the tv show, "Braxton Family Values." The show brought to the screen how five sisters, Toni, Tamar, Trina, Towanda, and Traci handle their lives, relationships and work. Their parents sometimes appear on the show. The best time to see them together is when their brother, Micheal, comes around.
