1. SOUNDBITE (English) Toni Braxton, recording artist:
"I remember my first tour. I opened up for Frankie Beverly (Maze). It was my very first album and they said 'We've got to get her on tour.' and Al Haymon did me a great thing and said, 'OK, let's put her out with Frankie Beverly' and I was nervous as everything. But I'm a PK, a preacher's kid, so I'd sung in church, I'm used to performing, I've got the pulpit, that's my stage, the audience is my congregation. So I was always used to performing. But I remember the high I got. I remember being so nervous at first and the endorphins took over and I got so excited. I remember the audience knew the lyrics to my songs, they were singing them so loudly that I could hardly hear myself sing. That was the best feeling. I remember that. We were actually in Texas. I don't know whether it was Houston or Dallas, but it was in Texas. I remember that - my first show."
