Early life

Songz did just that, and after winning numerous talent shows in Petersburg, VA, the 15-year-old singer met Katherine, who had worked behind the scenes with such artists as Patti LaBelle, SWV, and B2K. Katherine encouraged Trey to finish high school first, and then they could talk about a possible music career. Soon, the singer was appearing on Kevin Lyttle's debut album and Trick Daddy's Thug Matrimony as a sideman, as well as striking out on his own with "About the Game," a solo cut from the Coach Carter soundtrack.
