Who is Trey Songz?

Tremaine Aldon Neverson, better known as 'Trey Songz', is an American rapper, songwriter, record-producer and actor. He was raised as a military brat and since he had no positive male influence in his life, he cherishes his mother's influence a lot and brought her a house soon after achieving stardom. To negate the ill effects of fame and stardom, he constantly does a lot to give back to his community and to help the poor. Extremely shy and reserved in his childhood, his friends and family nudged him out of his cocoon and encouraged him to go ahead and work upon his singing ability. They suggested him to drop 'Rap' and 'Croon' instead, which suited his ‘tenor-voice'. Regular interventions and encouragement made him sign up for a talent show, where record-producer Troy Taylor heard him and recognised his potential. After completing his graduation, he moved to New Jersey to learn from the former. Before the launch of his first album, he got to collaborate and feature with some really big names of the industry like Lil' Kim, Trina, Snoop Dogg, Kevin Lyttle and Trick Daddy. From albums, he progressed onto mix-tapes, concerts and collaborations. Soon the biggest moment in his life arrived when he opened for Jay-Z on the latter's 'Fall-Tour' in 2009. Going by his career, he is recognised as one of the few artists who could maintain their mainstream status. In short, his story is one of faith, determination, struggle, hard work, humbleness and the power of dreaming
