Toni Braxton Performs With a Heart Monitor Strapped to Her Chest
Talk about being dedicated. Toni Braxton performed over the weekend with a heart monitor strapped to her chest, after suffering complications related to lupus.
The Grammy-winning singer's "The Hits" tour stopped in Savannah, Georgia on Saturday night and Braxton performed her hits with her heart monitor clearly strapped to her chest for the audience and Birdman—who was reportedly front and center in the crowd— to see. Braxton is reportedly is supposed to wear it all of the time to detect chest pain, oncoming heart attacks or a stroke.
The singer has already been hospitalized twice this month as a result of complications from her battle with lupus, an autoimmune disease. On Oct. 15, she was forced to postpone her Cleveland show due to her hospitalization and was also hospitalized in Los Angeles prior to that incident.
However, clearly she's not letting her fight with the the illness deter her from singing. Braxton's tour wraps on Nov. 13 in Connecticut. Check her full list of tour dates below.
