Toni Braxton Receives BMI’s 2016 President’s Award

It was quite the night recently when singer Toni Braxton received BMI’s highest honor, the 2016 President’s Award.

The ceremony took place during the BMI R&B Hip Hop Awards at Woodruff Arts Center in Atlanta on September 1, honoring Braxton’s incredible 25-year music career.

The night also consisted of various tributes to Braxton and her music.  Performing many of the multi-GRAMMY Award winning singer’s music was Yolanda Adams with “Unbreak My Heart,” Donald Lawrence & Company performing “You Mean The World To Me,” some Braxton sisterly love from Towanda, Traci and Tini with “Breathe Again,” and “Seven Whole Days” performed by Ledisi.

And of course the night wouldn’t have been complete without Braxton hitting the stage, which she did with her sisters singing “He Wasn’t Man Enough For Me.”

BMI, Broadcast Music Inc., “supports its songwriters, composers and publishers by taking care of an important aspect of their careers – getting paid.”
