Songz 4 Peace™ is a non violent youth initiative formed by Chicago Philanthropist Noonie G & 2X Grammy Nominated Recording Artist Trey Songz. The birth of Songz 4 Peace took place in Chicago Illinois at Lindblom High School on August 5, 2008. The purpose is to educate and empower urban youth as well as influence them to make wiser decisions and utilize the options/resources available to them. Since its launch, Songz4Peace has been activated in Richmond, VA at Thomas Jefferson High School, Minneapolis Minnesota at Brooklyn Center High School and has hosted several youth empowerment engagements throughout the country lead by Trey Songz and his team.
Trey and Noonie founded the Songz For Peace Foundation to help curb youth violence by spreading a positive message to young people. He also hopes to have children of his own and to be for them the positive male role model that he never had growing up. “I never really had male influences in my life,” he says. “Steady, male influences. And that’s what I wanna be for my family. As a musician, I definitely will attain everything that I set out to. I work very hard. But more important to me is that my family is taken care of. I can’t wait (to have my own family). But I got a lot of stuff to do before that.”
