Trey Songz Usteams For The Angels & Readies For The BET Awards and Essence Festival
By popular demand Trey Songz took the time out of his busy schedule to do a Ustream for his fans…or even better his ‘Angels’. He slipped a little info that he was in the studio writing songs which could possibly be for his next album. He also mentions how he’s excited to perform at this years Essence Music Festival in New Orleans. Trey described his previous experience at the Essence Festival as “Nothing but love in the air. No hatred.” The mainstage artist lineup is Usher, Charlie Wilson, Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia and more.
Songz recently spoke with Essence and said to expect a bigger and better show than last year. He also shared his favorite restaurant and admiration of New Orleans. “I ate a great meal at Nola’s in the French Quarter last year. My favorite part of New Orleans is actually the city itself. I like walking around and checking out the local shops.” He adds, “I love to catch the musicians who perform on the street and watch the crowd react to and interact with them.”
There’s plenty more things that Trey Songz should be excited about. The BET Awards are Sunday and “Bottoms Up” featuring Nicki Minaj is nominated for BET’s Coca-Cola Viewers’ Choice Award. Competing against Chris Brown, Lil’ Wayne, Mindless Behavior, Rihanna, and Nicki Minaj. Mr. Steal Your Girl will also be hitting the stage performing, (what we hope to be) Unusual featuring Drake.
Not only is Trey Songz nominated and performing at the BET Awards, but he will also be apart of a good cause by supporting the Lifebeat, AIDS Healthcare foundation presented by BET. The event will raise funds for Lifebeat’s HIV/AIDS prevention and support programs. He will be the performing guest for the night event at Playhouse in Hollywood, California.
