Three times Grammy nominee Toni Childs is set to thrill audiences with her signature husky vocals and emotive lyrics during a seven-city New Zealand tour during October.
Fresh from performing a string of sell-out shows in Australia, Toni will perform her blockbuster hits including Stop Your Fussin', as well as showcasing her latest hit album Keep The Faith. The songs from this emotionally hard-hitting album are a blend of roots, rock, folk and gospel songs.
Best known for her heavily R&B influenced Don't Walk Away, Toni hit the big time in 1988 when her critically acclaimed debut album Union went Double Platinum in New Zealand, selling 75,000 copies. The same year she was nominated for three Grammys, including Best New Artist. Her second album, House of Hope also went double platinum and in 1997, the release of Many Rivers to Cross caused her Greatest Hits album to go platinum too.
In 2008, Toni Childs also launched a new body care range, Feminine Mysteries™, which is inextricably linked to her Keep The Faith album. It also encourages people to connect, heal and transform the world through love.
Living on the island of Kauai, Hawaii, Toni has spent the last eight years recovering from the Graves Disease she was diagnosed with in the summer of 1997. Overcoming her battle with this rare disorder, she recently came back from her musical exile, giving fans so much more than they might ever have expected.
With a talent for picking the mood of the times, Toni Childs seems determined to go beyond affirming her role as an important voice of inspiration for an entirely new generation to explore the zeitgeist defining theme of global connection.
