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.
