We all fell in love with Traci when she appeared on the family’s WE TV reality show,”Braxton Family Values,” during its run from 2011 to 2020. But she was also a talented actress, best known for her role in “Sinners Wanted.” Additionally, she appeared in projects like “There’s a Stranger in my House” and “Chaaw.” More recently, she voiced the announcer on the 2020 TV movie The Christmas Lottery.

Like her talented sisters, she was also an incredible single, having recorded a hit song, “Last Call,” that rose to #16 on the Billboard Hot 100, as well as a song entitled Broken Things” that featured her sisters, Toni, Towanda, and Trina.
