Trey Songz on Trey’s Angel’s

I have “Trey’s Angels” who are my fan club and when I was on tour my fans were giving me a lot of gifts. I had the idea to have them to channel that [giving] toward people that need it. So, I did a video clip on my iPhone and I asked my Angels to donate to people in their area and commit random acts of kindness in their community. The feedback that I got was amazing. They would send videos back with them at homeless shelters, feeding the elderly, tutoring kids. It made me realize what power I had that could be used for good. Will your charity be focused on helping those in your hometown or across the country?
TREY: We’ll be everywhere. I’m planning to use it worldwide, actually. I’ve been to Australia, Europe, Africa and that was just this year. I do believe that charity starts at home and that’s where my first organized event was held—in Petersburg, Virginia. We helped children get free haircuts, little girls get their hair done, and we fed about 300 to 500 people. In my video, “Top of the World,” we showcased a lot of what was happening during that time.
