The singer, reality star and sister to Toni, Towanda, and Trina Braxton passed away at the age of 50 after battling Esophageal cancer, according to her family.
“We have come to a time where we must inform the public that after a year of privately undergoing a series of treatment for Esophageal cancer our beloved Traci Braxton has gone on to glory,” her husband Kevin Surratt said in a statement.
"When I heard the news about my mother being sick first thing she said was I’m going to fight and beat this," her son, Kevin Surratt Jr., said in an Instagram post Saturday. "She fought to the end and today she’s at peace."
Born in 1971, Braxton was known for her roles films like "Sinners Wanted" and "Chaaw" as well as the stage play "There’s a Stranger in My House."
But she was perhaps best known for her appearances in the family's reality TV show “Braxton Family Values" alongside her siblings Toni, Towanda, Trina, Tamar and Michael.
She also recorded the hit song “Last Call” in 2014, which peaked at No. 16 on the Billboard Hot 100. She also recorded the song “Broken Things” four years later with her sisters, Toni, Towanda and Trina.
Braxton's sister, Grammy-award winning artist Toni Braxton, also posted a tribute on Instagram.
"Traci passed this morning as the snow was falling, our angel is now a snowflake," she said Saturday. "We ask that you respect our privacy as we plan to send her home with love, celebrating her life."
