Michael Jackson Loved Toni Braxton’s ‘Breathe Again’

Recently ‘Toni Braxton: Unbreak My Heart’ biopic turned out to be Lifetime Network’s top-rated show in its debut, getting 3.6 million viewers on its debut show last Saturday. But did you know the King Of Pop (Michael Jackson) loved Toni’s 1993 single Breathe Again? Here’s what she had to say in a 2009 interview with Lime Magazine.

How did you feel when you heard about the death of Michael Jackson?

Gosh it was very surreal to me, I heard about his passing before the press did because I’m with AEG and so was Michael Jackson. When I found out I didn’t believe it because I’m a huge fan. I remember when I first met him; he came over to me which was a really big deal. We were at a charity ball (Carousel Of Hope 2000) and he came over to me and said, ‘Toni Braxton, oh my God I love you. Your voice is so incredible, so androgynous – it’s so unique. Breathe Again is my favorite song, let’s take a picture together.’ Of course I was like, ‘It’s Michael Jackson!’ Years later he called me on my phone and introduced himself but I was like, ‘Yeah right please like that’s Michael Jackson’ and put down the phone! Then his assistant called and was like, ‘No seriously Toni – it’s Michael Jackson’, when he called back I was like ‘Michael I’m so, so sorry’ and he said: ‘Everyone does that, I’m used to it!’
