FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 25, 2005, Northridge, CA

Twelve-year-old Tré aka Lil’ Tré, Sel’sum Records child prodigy, recently celebrated his birthday, but one of his biggest presents was learning that his debut single, “That Girl,” is one of the biggest sleepers in the South.

According to Billboard Magazine, Tré is the “fastest growing new artist” on the Billboard charts, moving from #4 to the #3 position on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Single Sales and from #13 to the #10 position on the Hot 100 Single Sales in the July 30, 2005 issue of the magazine, after debuting on the charts less than six weeks ago.

In recent weeks Tre, who was born in Houston but now resides in Atlanta with his parents, has found himself opening various shows for teen act B5, Mario, Marcus Houston and others; headlining at New York’s Apollo Theater; meeting his idol Bow Wow and selling out records at the FYE record store chain.    

Tré’s father, Joe aka Simply (former lead singer for Atlantic Record act “Groove You”) is a songwriter/producer and his mother Tangela (who was an on the air personality at radio station KTOY-FM, Texarkana, TX for six years), heads the label for which he records.

Tré is currently on a mini-promotional tour throughout various regions all over the U.S., performing live and visiting countless record stores and radio stations. Demand for this singer, whose debut album “Music In Me” will be released in September, remains heavy and with the onslaught of fan frenzy at each of his in-store appearances, extra security has been needed for the pint-sized entertainer.
