Toni Braxton

In 1998, the R&B diva replaced white actress Kim Huber in the Disney Broadway smash stage adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, becoming the first Black actress to lead a Disney Broadway musical. She returned to the B’Way stage in 2003, when she was given the lead in Aida, another Disney stage production.
