About Towanda Braxton
Towanda Chloe Braxton was the fourth child born to Michael and Evelyn. Even though she and her siblings were reared in church singing, Towanda knew she wanted to spread her wings and become a trailblazer in her own right as an entertainer. At a young age Towanda had the natural gift for acting. While playing the role as Lorelle in the off-Broadway play “Dreamgirls”, the director immediately took interest in Towanda’s raw talent and offered her a theater scholarship at Howard University. At that time, Towanda passed to follow her other passion: singing. Towanda resides in Lawrenceville, GA with two small children, Braxton and Brooke, and her husband, Andre.
