  • Review From An Angel
    09.24.12

    Earlier last week we asked to hear about your favorite songs on Chapter V, and why they mean so much to you. We were honestly moved by all the responses, and many of the stories truly touched us. One in particular truly impacted us, and we wanted to share it with everyone. Below is the heartwarming story from Angel, Angel4Trey.
     
     
    “I absolutely love the entire album I could go on for hours. But the one song that makes me cry every time I hear it is "Without a Woman". It lets me know that Trey understands every day struggles. I am a single mother raising 5 kids alone. I work full-time, I am a full-time student and have children that are grade school age that I have to help with home work every night on top of doing my own homework. I have no time for myself to just enjoy life. Without a Woman pushes me to move on and keep trying. No one recognizes the struggle I go through and for Trey to recognize and understand touches my heart. When Im riding in my car blasting this song I feel like Trey is talking directly to me. My treat to myself is attending aTrey concert. I have not yet met him but one day I will and all I want to say is thank you. He has managed to touch me in someway on each album from Gotta make it to ChapterV. Trey If you read this THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. ILOVE YOU. I thank him everyday for the Angels that he has brought into my life. At any given moment when I am down and need someone to talk to I know without a shadow of a doubt that 1 of them will be there and it only takes 1. Thanks to every Angel out there. Other songz that i love on the album is Don't be scared, Fumble, Bad decisions, Almost lose it, Panty wetter, Forever yours and ChapterV outdo. The whole album lol. Thanks again Trey I love you”

I know thats right. I know that there is a man somewhere who wont be able to function without me in his life and until that time comes, I keep pushing to do whats best for me and mine

I know exactly what you are going through. I graduated with my Masters degree in 2010. I'm a single mom of 3 girls and I worked full-time while going to school as well. I'd have to help them with their homework, cook dinner, and comb hair every night. Once I'd put them to bed at 9 p.m., I'd stay up till 1-2 a.m. doing my homework. We had to be up for school and work by 6 a.m. I did that for 5 years straight (first getting my Bachelors in 2008 & then my Masters in 2010). It was definitely a struggle but it was well worth it. When I finished, I was so glad to get 8 hours of sleep again. I know what you're going through honey and it is hard, but don't give up. You can do it--I'm living proof.

Hey, I completely agree with the way you feel and view Trey as an artist. Just gotta make is me motivation anthem. Trey helps me cope with my daily struggles of working two jobs, looking for an internship, and dealing with family and financial issues. Your story made me believe that anything is possible. Thank you Trey and thank you for sharing your story. :)

I agree I absolutely love the whole album but without a woman is my absolute fav. Although i don't have any children I understand exactly where your coming from because I do have neices and nephews who I have to step up as a mother figure because my sister and brother can't give them their 100 for various reasons. Trey shows us that he does understand us beyond the surface. And that is exactly why he's "SIMPLY AMAZING" :)

Keep up the good work love, your super mom. We support you all the way.
#Angels

I love the whole album too!!! I find myself playing it all the time when I'm going to work and leaving work. If you ever get to go to a concert Angel4Trey your gonna love every minute of it because I couldn't take my eyes off him and couldn't stop screaming; he's outstanding on that stage. I have never met him before either; that's the next thing on my list along with seeing him perform again. Keep doing your thing Trey we love you always!!!

I swear she said everything that she said is the exact same for me, only I have four kids. I am in nursing school full time, then have to come home, help the kids with homework, get my son ready for football practice or a game, fix dinner AFTER getting back home, get everyone bathed, fed and to bed all before I can even sit down to think about looking at my homework. And Lord forbid I have clinicals that day or a test the next! The slightest bit of appreciation means more than anybody who isn't in this situation will ever know. It means that much more when it comes from your favorite artist and for that, Trey, I say thank you! You will never know how much a song like Without A Woman means to us single mothers that have no choice but to get out and do it by our selves. Thank you 1 million times for everything. <3

I really really love the whole album but my most favorite is FUMBLE because I can relate to that song so much that it almost made me cry. For a man to own what he has done wrong to a woman is....no words can explain every song on that album I can relate or experienced in my life with the exception of Check me out, Hail Mary, and 2 Reasons lol. But I listen to Trey every day I mean everyday he is such an inspiration to me in every way and he seems to be a hopeless romantic which I love lol I have been going through some really rough times these last fews months and I must say all I have to do is put Trey on all his albums especially when my husband makes me mad lmao anyway I have had Angels reach out to me with their most intimate problems and don't even know eachother but that's the beauty of this how he has the ability to bring people from all over together that is truly a gift from GOD and he deserves every blessing that god has given him and more....THANK YOU Trey for staying true to who you are,giving us such great music and loving us so much don't you ever change!!!!!! I LOVE YOU

This story truly touches me because I was a single women with two child until my child's father took them away from me in august and can no longer see them now. It hurts a lot each day. And now the only time that I can leave this reality it's when I focus on trey's news and songs (my favourite one on ChapterV is forever yours..). I pass my time on tweeter with the others angels. I'm impressed to see how can one Man bring together so much people all over the world for the same reason : Love for Trey. Now thanks to him I can tchat with some brazilian or american or french...angels and it makes me feel better and allow me to get away from my life and my sorrow. (Thanks god for created Treimane Aldon Neverson) Thanks to Trey to be what he is and for created trey's angels team. And thanks to all angels for their solidarity and love. I love you Trey and wish you the best forever. I'm your angel for life.

DISCUSS THIS POS

This was beautiful!! I love reading how much Trey has touched other people it keeps me sane in knowing that I am not the only one that gets soooooo much from his music =]

mysoulfulfaith1148's picture

You are not the only one doll! His music has helped me through some very painful times in my life....#Sanity! Is the focus & his music does just that! His music and words of inspiration are blessings to so many people! "Cant Help But Wait" tells a personal story for me...down to the minute! Fast forward...& she's "Simply Amazing"!!!! Trey's music speaks to such a diversity of people! He Simply Rocks & So Humble!!! #DoThatSh!tTrey!!! =-)
