Event Description

The Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh, the leading non-profit advocacy organization for the LGBTQ community, welcomes the distinctive, sultry vocals of seven-time Grammy Award-winning recording artist Toni Braxton on Saturday, June 8.

In addition to your ticket, be sure to add our Weekend Drink Package, which includes complimentary beer and cocktails ALL WEEKEND at Pittsburgh Pride including:  Pride Rocks PGH concert with Walk the Moon, Saturday PrideFest, Pride Rocks PGH concert with Toni Braxton, and Sunday PrideFest.

With such timeless hits such as “Love Shoulda Brought You Home,” “Another Sad Love Song,” “Breathe Again,” “Seven Whole Days,” “Un-Break My Heart” and “He Wasn’t Man Enough,” few artists ever ascend to the rarefied heights of “legend,” “icon,” “songstress” and “diva" as Toni Braxton does.

Braxton's 1993 self-titled debut album, which is now 8x platinum, garnered the singer the first three of her seven Grammy Awards, including best new artist. Braxton, who began singing professionally in the 80s with her three sisters as The Braxtons, has since banked an enviable number of career-defining moments. Between 1996 and 2010, she released six more solo albums (Secrets, The Heat, Snowflakes, More Than a Woman, Libra and Pulse) and charted a string of hits (including “You Mean the World to Me,” “You’re Makin’ Me High” and “I Love Me Some Him”/ “I Don’t Want To”) before teaming with Babyface 2014 for the critically acclaimed duets album that won her a seventh Grammy for Best R&B Album.

In March of 2018, Toni released her ninth studio album, Sex & Cigarettes. It’s her first studio album since Love, Marriage & Divorce, and her first solo album in nearly a decade. The album earned Braxton three Grammy Award nominations: Best R&B Album, and Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Song for the single "Long as I Live."

Along the way, Braxton reinvented her game as she effortlessly segued into a theatrical acting career in 1998 as Belle in Beauty and the Beast. That barrier-breaking portrayal—the first black woman to play a leading role in a Disney Broadway production—led to a stint in a second Disney Broadway musical, Aida, and later a special guest star engagement with another Broadway musical, After Midnight.

Since then, Braxton has starred in three TV films for Lifetime including Twist of Faith, Toni Braxton: Unbreak My Heart (adapted from her same-titled best-selling memoir) and, most recently, Faith Under Fire: the Antoinette Tuff Story.  Her fourth Lifetime movie 'Every Day Is Christmas,' premieres November 24. 

In between, she and her three sisters have become popular reality stars via WE tv’s flagship series Braxton Family Values, now in its sixth season.

Opening for Toni Braxton is Rina Sawayama, a Japanese-British singer/songwriter and model who identifies as pansexual. She has quickly become an important figure in the LGBTQ community, unapologetically embracing her queer identity with empowering ferocity. Her 2018 track “Cherry” explores her sexual identity and “features several people of color queer dancers fully embracing their femininity as that’s something you don’t see. The movement is based around the struggle of coming to terms with what society has told you is wrong, but in the end is a justified feeling.”

There will be several full-service bars available serving all the popular libations (so be sure to bring your ID), as well as numerous food options to satisfy your every food craving. 

To attend the event, you must be 18 or older or accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 25. The concert is standing room only.
