Six-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Toni Braxton returned to the Las Vegas stage Friday night at Pearl at the Palms, her first public performance here since her two-year residency ended in May 2008 at the Flamingo, with a loud and proud proclamation: “I love you, Las Vegas!”

Braxton, known for her deep, sexy voice and the reality TV series “Braxton Family Values,” had plenty of wardrobe changes and performed some of her biggest hits for the audience, including “You Mean the World to Me” and “Another Sad Love Song” — other fan favorites include “Unbreak My Heart,” “You’re Making Me High” and “Breath Again.”

Before the concert, Braxton’s sister and recording artist Tamar Braxton posed for photographs with fans in the theater. It was announced at the show that Tamar will be the opening act at the Pearl for the previously unannounced John Legend show Nov. 30.
