‘I feel very grateful for life. Music helps me connect with people,’ the 53-year-old R&B belter gushed in the December edition of Harper’s BAZAAR Vietnam.
‘The best feeling is knowing that you have inspired many people. I love to perform, love to compose music. I love singing.’

Toni also showcased her gorgeous gams in an ornate golden leotard and white tulle cape designed by Tuyet Le, which was selected by stylist Danielle Hawkins.
Braxton struck a pose in a billowy pink creation from Lebanese designer Georges Hobeika with earring by Yves Kamioner.
The Dance singer’s 1930s-style pin curls were coiffed by hairstylist Marie Brown and her usual make-up artist Eva Kim applied her pink eye shadow for the shoot.
Toni discovered she suffered from the autoimmune disease Lupus as well as Microvascular Angina during a health crisis in 2008.
‘I was petrified. I’m scared! At that time I did not know what lupus is!’ Braxton recalled.
‘I have one of the most serious Lupus syndromes. But from the most serious things, I have the best. I always try to think positively.’
The Maryland-born beauty – whose ‘beauty secret’ is using a frozen vibrator on her puffy eyes – has since unveiled a platinum-blonde pixie cut makeover over the Thanksgiving holiday.
On Wednesday, Toni shared a cute video of herself embracing her son Denim Cole in honor of his 19th birthday.
