Toni Braxton has announced that she is to retiring as a recording artist and is looking to focus on an acting career.
The star made the shock announcement on Good Morning America ”It’s not affecting me, making me feel that thing I’ve always felt when I perform. It’s leaving me, I’m not sure what’s going on in my life. Maybe a female mid-life crisis? My heart isn’t in it anymore. I hate to say that.”
The star has reportedly lost some of her passion for music. In further interview, Toni also commented: “For what I do I have to love it. I have to feel that excitement and it’s gone. 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 R&B singer has won an outstanding eight Grammy Awards and sold over 66 million records throughout her career.
Toni is currently promoting her latest TV movie Twist of Faith. The film is about a single mother who is the lead singer of a small gospel choir and falls in love with an Orthodox Jewish man. David Julian Hirsh and Mykelti Williamson also star alongside Toni in the film.
