    Union is the debut album by American singer-songwriter Toni Childs, making its impactful debut on June 10, 1988. This groundbreaking release soared to number 63 on the Billboard 200 chart in the US, achieving Gold certification for surpassing 500,000 copies sold. Across the Pacific, it reached remarkable heights, hitting number one in New Zealand and earning an impressive 5x Platinum certification for selling over 75,000 copies.

    Featuring a captivating array of tracks, "Union" introduced listeners to Childs' remarkable talent. The album spawned four singles: "Stop Your Fussin'", "Don't Walk Away", "Walk and Talk Like Angels", and "Zimbabwe". Notably, "Stop Your Fussin'" made waves in Australia, New Zealand, and Germany, securing a spot in the top 20 charts. Meanwhile, "Don't Walk Away" became a defining moment for Childs, marking her only single to grace the US charts, peaking at number 72.

    Recorded across London, Paris, and Swaziland, "Union" was a collaborative effort with David Ricketts and David Baerwald, known for their work on the 1986 album "Boomtown" as David + David. Time Magazine hailed "Union" as a poignant reflection of life's tumultuous journey, capturing the essence of love's complexities and the resilience of hope. Describing it as a "diary of dashed love and stubborn hope set into layers of melody that will never let the memory loose," the album resonated deeply with audiences worldwide.

    In recognition of her outstanding debut, Childs earned two Grammy Award nominations: 'Best New Artist' and 'Best Rock Vocal Performance (Female)' for the iconic single "Don't Walk Away". "Union" not only marked the beginning of Toni Childs' illustrious career but also left an indelible mark on the landscape of contemporary music.
