Trey Songz celebrated a career milestone when he was honored at the New York Chapter Recording Academy Honors 2013 earlier this week. His proud mother looked on as he was presented with his award by manager and mentor Kevin Liles, while Ne-Yo saluted him with a cover of “Can’t Be Friends.”
“Stood amongst legends tonight. Truly grateful,” tweeted a humble Trey, who joined fellow honorees Valerie Simpson and Melissa Etheridge at the VIP reception.
Next up, Trey will perform at the Essence Music Festival over the Fourth of July weekend and will star in the upcoming romantic comedy Baggage Claim.
