Contemporary R&B/soul singer Trina Broussard was born and raised in Houston, TX, influenced by her mother, who was a jazz singer, and her father, who played guitar in jazz big bands and accompanied pop vocalists Anita Baker, Stevie Wonder, and Donny Hathaway. Broussard began her music career upon moving to Atlanta, GA, in 1990, singing background vocals for Bobby Brown, Mariah Carey, Babyface, Toni Braxton and BeBe & CeCe Winans. Through an association with Trey Lorentz, she began writing songs, and signed with the So So Def label. Her first popular single was the Minnie Riperton song "Inside My Love," featured on the 1997 platinum-selling film soundtrack “Love Jones.” In 1998, Broussard co-wrote Aretha Franklin’s hit record "Here We Go Again," and released another single of her own, "Love You So Much," the following year. Unfortunately, the intended album was never released. She signed with the Motown label in 2002, recording her album “Same Girl” with Ra-Re Valverde. In 2009 she returned to the music industry and embarked on a short promo tour before announcing her third album “Life of a Libra” in 2010.
In 2016 Broussard returned with a new harmony-rich single “Adieu.” The mid-tempo burner engineered by the Atlanta-based conglomerate R&B Moguls. As for the length of time between release, Broussard assures her fans, “I never left. I have continued to stay close to music, “ said the singer who has recently provided backing vocals for music icons Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez. “As far as recording another album...TIMING. This is definitely the continuation of my personal and musical metaphorical journey. I believe that the appointed time is the right time.”
