Braxton was visibly shocked with her win, and teared up while thanking her family and then continued to deliver a special message to her fans.
“I just really want to leave you guys with this note: I never thought in my life that I would be here and the only reason is that because I almost gave up on myself. I want to let you guys know, no matter what you want to be, no mater who you want to be, don’t give up on you. It’s possible,” Braxton said.
It has been a long road for Braxton to musical success. She struggled for eyars bouncing between labels and working on music that was never released. “Love and War” is one of her first major successes. Braxton ended her acceptance speech with an outburst of pride, saying, “I’m 36 years old and I’m proud of it. And I don’t give a damn if I was 56!”
Braxton just released a Christmas album, Winter Loversland and is currently on tour.
