Giving her soulful R&B voice a rest, Toni Braxton announced that she will be retiring from music on Friday (February 8).
During a visit to "Good Morning America," the "Un-Break My Heart" singer lamented, "It's not affecting me, making me feel that thing I've always felt when I perform. It's leaving me. I'm not sure what's going on in my life. Maybe a female mid-life crisis? My heart isn't in it anymore. I hate to say that."
The Grammy winning artist explained further in The Grio, saying, "For what I do I have to love it. I have to feel that excitement and it's gone. I'm just not going to do any albums anymore; maybe touring occasionally here and there because I love performing, but not as much as I did in the past. But no new projects."
In 2010, Toni released her seventh studio album, Pulse. As for the future, Ms. Braxton wishes to take on more film roles.
