The411:  R & B Sensation Trey Songz talks about his career, family and his future in this week's The411.   

Trey Songz "Of course Passion, Pain and Pleasure the album, September 14th that's actually two days before the last tour date, so its all in promoting the album, I will be singing new songs at every date.  This is a beautiful venue too I can't wait to perform."   

Songz "Opening for JayZ was an amazing experience. The difference between that and this those fans were his fans and these are mine.  You know that was very pivotal in my career it was kinda like a stamp of approval if you will and a great plato to step off and do what ever I wanted to.  To be on tour with the biggest hip hop artist is and to have his approval is something major." 

Songz "The relationship I have wit my mother is the strongest relationship in my life. She's very instrumental in the success I have right now just the motivation and drive she has herself.  The way she raised me and she's a great friend and role model.  I still look up to er this day and she's my biggest inspiration."    

Songz "I just want to let my fans know that I love them out there Louisville and beyond much love."    

Also, Dr. Farrah Gray will be at Central High School Saturday for the one plus one college expo.  Make sure you follow me throughout the week on  If you have an event send it to I'm Sherlene Shanklin with WHAS11 News.
