Rarely do we encounter in daily news hip-hop acts being recognized by their communities for their creative and altruistic contributions. Monday night (May 15), Glitz & Girlpower in partnership with Premier Choice Group— women empowerment platforms that promote campaigns designed to celebrate the most inspirational and influential women in their respective industries, celebrated their first #WatchUsWerk dinner ceremony at Miami’s posh Ultrachic steakhouse; STK. The campaign kicked off honoring, Katrina Laverne Taylor (aka “Trina”) for all of the major milestones made throughout her seventeen years in the music industry.
After 5 albums, millions of records sold, and dozens of awards, Trina has and will always be a musical icon in the hip hop industry. The phenomenal success in her rap career would not be possible without support from local residents of Miami-Dade County. During the celebration Trina was also honored with her very own day by the Mayor of Miami, Tomas Pedro Regalado and Commissioner Keon Hardenon. CViddy TV proudly covered the special commencement ceremony of the formal proclamation of “Trina Day,” watch the recap and see photos below.
