R&B-Hip Hop singer Trey Songz, also known as the Prince of Virginia, headlined the BET 106 & Park tour Friday night, October 9, at a packed Tabernacle. Playing to the crowd of predominantly enthusiastic females, the scene was reminiscent of the kind of adulation seen with Beatlemainia or Tom Jones, complete with fainting. While Trey tossed black roses into the crowd, panties were tossed up onto the stage. He teased his fans with seductive vocals and highly sexualized dance moves, keeping the packed house hanging on every note in a very intimate performance.
Tremaine Aldon Neverson (born November 28, 1984), better known by his stage name Trey Songz, is an American recording artist, producer and actor. He has released three studio albums: I Gotta Make It, Trey Day and Ready. Songz was born on November 28, 1984, in Petersburg, Virginia. Raised a military brat, he recognized his vocal abilities at the age of 14. Reluctant to sing, he began performing with encouragement by friends and family. Record producer Troy Taylor discovered Songz during a talent show, which led him to a record contract with Atlantic Records. After graduating from high school, Songz moved to New Jersey to begin his music career. In 2008, Songz was nominated for a BET Award for Best Male R&B Artist. In 2009, “Can’t Help but Wait” earned Songz a nomination for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance at the 2009 Grammy Awards ceremony. He released his third album, Ready, in September, 2009, which debuted at number three on the Billboard 200, selling 131,000 copies in its first week.
