WATCH: Toni Braxton talks ‘Twist of Faith’ Role, Gospel Roots & Big Break

EEW Magazine News & Entertainment

The buzz has been steadily building surrounding Grammy Award-winner Toni Braxton’s newest Lifetime gig playing a Christian mom in “Twist of Faith.”

The singer actress is making her media rounds talking about the new film, how she got her start singing gospel, and the big break that changed the course of her life.

Set for a Saturday Feb. 9 premiere at 8/7c, the interfaith drama tells the tale of tragedy, love, and hope, brought to life by the sounds of gospel music.

In an interview with Access Hollywood Live’s Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Monday, Braxton talked about the similarities between herself and her character.

“I sang in the choir. I went to college to be a teacher – she’s a school teacher,” the R&B superstar said.  “[She is everything] I would’ve been had my moment not happened at that gas station that one day.”

Braxton's big break came in an unconventional way.

In 1990, the then-college student was filling up her tank at an Aamco gas station when the attendant heard her singing. It just so happened to be producer Bill Pettaway, who was working with a then-emerging Milli Vanilli, overheard her luscious and rich vocals.

Were it not for that turn of events, Braxton's life may have more resembled her small screen character Nina.

In Twist of Faith, David Julian Hirsh plays Jacob Fisher, an Orthodox Jewish Cantor, who after losing his family, ends up abandoning his identity and goes wandering, landing in the town gospel singer Toni's Nina lives in. The two find chemistry and sparks fly.
