A glowing Toni Braxton took to social media to say how grateful she is to receive a wonderful surprise after the Recording Academy announced the 2019 Grammy Awards nominees.
The living legend received a nomination for her latest album Sex & Cigarettes in the Best R&B Album category.
Toni’s hit track, “Long As I Live,” landed nominations in the Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Song categories.
Toni thanked her fans and supporters by saying: “Today is truly one of the best days of my life. I decided to take time out to freeze this feeling forever…Thank-you to my family, friends, fans and to the Academy. Christmas came early this year! ”
One person told the talented diva: “Thank you for being so open and honest about your condition. Before all this happened, your music and your general being became a guiding light for me to keep going and immerse myself into pursuing music wholeheartedly, despite others doubts. There were countless moments where I was on the cusp of giving up, but I was fortunate to have you and your music to refer to and remind me why I was doing this in the first place. As of lately its all collapsed and I can’t begin to pick it all back up, but I am lucky that, despite what the doctors have to tell me, I can still look at you and have hope in my heart and not have to let my dreams and passion disintegrate and fade. Thankyou @tonibraxton. I hope one day I’ll be able to meet you and thank you in person, but in case I’m not so lucky, I truly am fortunate to have been able to witness the greatness that is you in my lifetime. Lots of love- KM.”
