In celebrating Black Music, R&B artist Trey Songz describes his relationship with music saying, “Music shows you the ups and downs of love. Music teaches you, music can be cruel; it shows you the joyous side of love and I think that is the most beautiful thing about music.”

Black music is, has and is currently inspiring the lives of fans across the world because it taps into a wide array of emotions. “Black music has been a resource for entertainment and culture that effected individuals lives beyond ethnic barriers, says Gary Gentles, CEO of Singersroom. “Singersroom is highlighting a piece of music that has become our soundtrack to life.”
