If you've been to the theater in the past few year - particularly, a musical - you've most likely seen Brenda Braxton perform.
She's a stage actress and dancer with a long history of credits - including the role of Velma Kelly in the ongoing Broadway revival of Chicago. As of August 2008, she became the longest-running Velma in the show's history.
Her other credits include Dreamgirls and Smokey Joe's Cafe.
She's also an entrepreneur, having started BBRAXTON, an upscale men's grooming shop in Harlem.
