It isn’t a question as to whether Toni Braxton has the commercial success that the Hall might be looking for. Where she might fail is that as much as she was thought of as an R&B diva she is equally remembered as an Adult Contemporary superstar. It is the latter that could be a problem for as much as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has been criticized for allowing in musicians who symbolize styles that are not considered Rock; Adult Contemporary is not one if them. This all makes a wonderful musical career but are we looking at one that could make the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? This could be a difficult road.
