(4/16/03, 3 p.m. ET) -- Diva Toni Braxton will return to Broadway in the lead role of Elton John and Tim Rice's Aida at New York's Palace Theater beginning on June 30. Braxton has agreed to play the role for four months.
Braxton issued the following statement, "I am very excited to be coming back to Broadway as Aida. Ever since I was a little girl, I have been a fan of Elton John's music and to be able to sing the wonderful score he wrote with Tim Rice will be a terrific challenge both as a singer and as a actress."
In 1998, Braxton made her Broadway debut in the role of Belle in Beauty And The Beast.
On September 16, Braxton is slated to release her first album since parting ways with Arista Records to join Blackground Records.
