Toni Braxton

Un-Break My Heart

Composed by Diane Warren

Song Review by

Songwriter Diane Warren thought that "Un-Break My Heart" was a great title. She played the finished song to Arista Records president Clive Davis. He thought it would be perfect for Toni Braxton. With background vocals by Shanice Wilson and produced by David Foster from her multi-platinum Secrets, "Un-Break My Heart" had 11 weeks at number one pop and a 14-week stay at number one adult contemporary in late 1996.
