Out The Box is Gospel and R&B singer Tonéx's first live album and third major release. It was recorded Live on September 19, 2003 at The San Diego Civic Theater. The single "Work On Me" reached #3 on Billboard's Hot Gospel Songs chart. "Out the Box" is Certified Platinum selling well over 980,000 copies.[1]


On September 19, 2003 at 2:30 P.M. in the afternoon, over 400 people were already lined up outside the San Diego Civic Theatre for the Out the Box live recording. The recording did not start until 8:00 P.M. that evening. The anticipation was high for Tonéx's first live recording. An over capacity crowd of over 3,500 people stood shrieking with applause, eagerly awaiting Tonéx to emerge from a 9-foot tall music box. From that point…it was on! Tonéx and a multicultural 40-voice choir called The Peculiar People, a seven piece band, three piece horn section, and four dancers mesmerized the audience for over three hours. They did their best to capture what happened that night. The screams you hear are real, not added. The anointing they experienced that night was real, not contrived.
