Hot R&B sensation Trey Songz will be performing at a Thanksgiving benefit concert for his Angels with Heart Foundation on November 25. The Grammy-nominated singer has been compared to the likes of R&B greats Al Greene and Marvin Gaye, for his smooth, sultry voice and “baby making music.”
The fairly new charity, created just last year by the Grammy-nominated singer, was created in effort to engage members of his fan club in taking part in more positive work in their communities. How awesome is that?! His fan club, known as “Trey’s Angels” were encouraged to give back through random acts of kindness, donating their time and more to support the cause of improving the communities they live in and those in surrounding cities, with a special focus on the youth. The group who took part in Songz’s call-to-action were often referred to as “Angles with Heart,” so Songz settled on that as the name of his foundation.
Songz has teamed up with popular NYC radio station HOT 97 to present the one-day benefit concert, where Songz will be taking the stage at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. The concert is aimed at promoting the amazing mission of the Angels with Hearts Foundation to help underprivileged children and at-risk youth in a variety of ways.
“Because I have been blessed to be in the situation where I am able to touch and be heard by so many people, it’s only right that I use that voice to give back and empower the youth, strengthen families and communities” says Songz on the foundation website.
Declaring November as the official “Angels with Heart” month, Songz will be rounding out this month with his birthday on the 28th and the release of his new album Inevitable, that drops on November 29. (Happy Birthday, Trey! And congrats on the album!)
The declaration of Angels with Heart month also celebrates the hard work of his devoted members.
“My fans don’t just go hard for me, they go hard for humanity,” said Songz.
Fans are encouraged to contribute to the singer’s efforts by downloading Songz’s video Top of the World, or by downloading the album, Inevitable, as a portion of the proceeds will go to the foundation. Tickets and VIP packages for the benefit are available now, here on Ticketmaster.
Can’t attend the concert? Don’t worry … the performance will be internationally broadcast for those who miss out.
