Toni Childs is back: her Because You’re Beautiful Australia-wide tour is paving the way for the groundbreaking Citizens of the Planet release! Not only will fans be thrilled by favourite hits such as Stop Your Fussin’, Where’s the Ocean, Zimbabwe and Because You’re Beautiful, but also by the news of Toni’s imminent release of her new album Citizens of the Planet – which has been made entirely possible through her fans’ astonishing support. Best known for her heavily R&B-influenced Don’t Walk Away, Toni Childs exploded into our pop-rock consciousness and hit the bigtime in 1988, when her critically acclaimed debut album Union went double platinum in Australia, selling 200,000 albums. The same year she was nominated for three Grammys including Best New Artist, and she toured the east coast with childhood idol Bob Dylan. Her second album, House of Hope, went three times platinum and, in 1997, the release of Many Rivers to Cross caused her Greatest Hits album to go five times platinum, selling more than 500,000 albums.
