If you’ve never belted “Un-Break My Heart” in the privacy of your own car while it’s raining… well, do you even have a heart? The iconic ’90s ballad about reversing some brutal heartbreak is perhaps the most definitive moment in the speckled career of diva and reality show star Toni Braxton.

Following a brief 5-month-long retirement from music in 2013, Braxton dropped a memoir, returned to Broadway, starred in a slew of Lifetime original movies, and released her eighth studio record, 2018’s Sex & Cigarettes — all while quietly battling lupus. For this special Valentine’s Day performance as part of her “As Long As I Live Tour,” Braxton will perform her entire catalog of No. 1 hits. Girl group SWV is also on the bill.

Toni Braxton will perform at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 14 at the Fox Theatre; 2211 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-471-3200;; Tickets are $39.50+.
