Trina Speaks To The Kids

Trina spoke to almost 50 children in Cincinnati’s

troubled Over-The Rhine neighborhood, which was the scene of riots in April

of 2001, due to police brutality.

Trina appeared at the Over-The-Rhine Community

Center before a performance at Tequila’s Night Club. Her appearance is part of an effort

by the Peace Down The Way Coalition and WIZ 100.9 in an attempt to halt the

violence that is plaguing the community. The show was promoted by Cincinatti’s TC Entertainment.

"Sometimes it can be just that one person

who reaches out that can turn a child’s life around," Trina said. That

means a lot to me."

Trina said that she runs a charity, the Ronnie

Harris Foundation, for children with meningitis.

"My message to the kids is just to work

hard, stay in school and stay positive and focused," she continued. "I

want them to know that education is the most important thing no matter what

you do in life."

latest effort, "House of 1,000 Corpses." Trina recorded "Brickhouse

2003" with Zombie and Lionel Richie.
