The Lifetime original TV movie Toni Braxton: Unbreak My Heart chronicles the life of seven-time Grammy Award-winning singer Toni Braxton. Toni’s life of course involves her close-knit family, including her protective mother Evelyn who warned Toni during her rise to stardom that people in the industry “tell you how much they love you and then they try to change you.”
