Trish is one of them and the epitome of multitalented, Trish has earned the right to reach for and fly with the stars. Perhaps it’s the relentless depth of her passion or the intoxicating quality of her voice, but the dance-driven, electro-pop infused entertainer has an undeniable star power. Earning the coveted title as the “next big thing”, her music intertwines the elements of electrifying R&B and captivating funk with an edgy hip-hop feel.
We met her at the 2010 Stylus awards in May 2010. Listen to Trish's music below. She's gonna be going big! The next big thing from Canada is TRISH!

"They wanna celebrate his life and music," he said. "His albums are like timelines in your life. You can remember what you were doing ... when 'Thriller' came out."
The Taj party will be part of the global celebration of Jackson's brilliant but troubled life. Jackson died at age 50 as he was preparing for comeback concerts in London.
In that city, a memorial was unveiled Thursday to a gaggle of press who packed the foyer of London's Lyric Theatre, the site of an impromptu wake following the pop superstar's death last year.
Perri Luc Kiely, 14, a member of the dance troupe Diversity, pulled back a pair of dark purple curtains to reveal a small plaque featuring a young Jackson with a wide, beaming smile. Applause and the bright flashes of cameras erupted.
"He influenced me and the whole group so much, and it was just a real big honour to be able to do that," Perri said.
With the foyer packed to the brim with photographers, videographers and journalists, fans stood on the street and peered in, capturing the moment with their camera phones.
Leanne Irving, 20, travelled seven hours by bus from her home in northern England to be able to attend the memorial events.
"An absolute inspiration. I would love to be like him and dance like him. He inspires everything I want to do in life and everything I want to achieve," said Irving, an aspiring performance artist.
In Hong Kong, Jackson imitators performed to the late singer's classics at a suburban mall Thursday. Four-year-old Wang Yiming danced to "Dangerous" wearing Jackson's trademark black fedora hat, a black suit with a silver armband and white socks.
While festive celebrations like parties are expected on Friday, there will also be sombre remembrances. In Gary, Indiana, Jackson's hometown, there will be a tribute at the Jackson home; city officials said they expected Michael's mother Katherine and his niece Genevieve to show up, along with thousands of others.
Other close friends and family members, such as Jackson's brother, Randy, are also expected to gather Friday morning for a private service at Forest Lawn cemetery outside of Los Angeles, where he is buried.
"My family and I will be in attendance as we mourn the loss of my brother," Jackson said in a statement Thursday. "I would like to thank the fans and friends for their continued love, support, and prayers."
Katherine Jackson has thrown her support behind a "Forever Michael" fan event to be held Saturday at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. Tickets range from $150 to $500.
The Apollo Theatre in Harlem, where a young Michael Jackson and his brothers won amateur night, will host a commemoration Friday of Jackson's life in front of the recently installed plaque honouring him in the legendary theatre's new hall of fame.
And later in the afternoon in Harlem, around the hour of Jackson's death, the Rev. Al Sharpton and his National Action Network will hold a moment of silence.
Sharpton, a longtime associate of Jackson and his family and who gave impassioned remarks at Jackson's televised memorial last July, said he thought a moment of silence was appropriate to show "the sanctity of the hour. He meant a lot to us of all races in terms of bringing us together in another kind of spirit.
"I wanted to make sure that we showed that in the middle of all this that is going on in the world that Michael is someone that we would all stop for ... He was more than just a singer, he was a social force, and a sense of inspiration."
The move comes a day after General Stanley McChrystal, the commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, apologized for comments by his aides insulting some of President Barack Obama's closest advisers in an article to be published in Rolling Stone magazine.
The controversy comes at an inopportune time for Obama, who already is dealing with huge BP Plc oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, trying to get financial industry reform legislation through Congress and hoping to prevent Republicans from taking back control of Congress in November elections.
An Obama administration official said McChrystal had been directed to appear in person at Wednesday's Afghanistan meeting at the White House "to explain to the Pentagon and the commander-in-chief his quotes in the piece about his colleagues."
The military officials said McChrystal would be flying from Kabul on Wednesday. It was not immediately clear whether McChrystal would be ousted.
The Rolling Stone article, to be published on Friday, also quoted an aide describing McChrystal's "disappointment" with his initial one-on-one meeting with Obama last year.
Nobody knew that cover up there will be so strategic a year later. No hope for McChrystal.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that one of the songs on the Disco Fever CD was Donna Summer's "Last Dance." The song has two sets of lyrics. One version includes the words "so bad." But some heard the alternative lyrics "so horny" on the CD, which had been marked as safe for 3 years old and up.
The Atlanta-based chain announced on its website Saturday that it would continue to put three other CDs in the kids' meals. Those CDs include the songs "ABC" by Jackson 5 and "Celebration" by Kool & the Gang. The website said Wendy's is "no longer offering" the Disco Fever CD but doesn't mention the reason.
Poor Wendy Thomas! Her dad Dave Thomas will roll in his grave!
Rocker Slash has laughed off a stage invasion during a concert in Milan, Italy on Thursday night, insisting he's fine but his guitar was broken in the fracas.
The guitar great was forced to halt his show when an over-zealous fan climbed onstage and tackled him as he started up a rendition of Guns 'N Roses anthem Sweet Child O' Mine.
The burly fan almost knocked the rocker over as he lunged at him and then was tackled off the stage by security.
Slash composed himself and tried to play on, but realized his guitar neck had been snapped and had to call for a replacement instrument.After the show, the Velvet Revolver star said, "It was a rowdy crowd, for sure, but amazing. The guy who nailed me didn't take me down but he busted my poor guitar. Ah well... it was a kick-ass rock show."
The 29-year-old is expecting her first child with producer fiance Swizz Beatz later this year but she's already looking to provide a sibling for the baby.
The singer regularly visits Africa in conjunction with her Keep A Child Alive charity, which helps youngsters whose parents have died of AIDS - and the heartbreaking trips have left Keys wanting to help out.
She tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "Adopting is definitely not out of the question. I would love to figure out the ways that could work for me.
"I felt I wanted to scoop up the children I met in Africa and take them home. At this point I kinda feel I have amazing brothers and sisters in Africa. Hopefully I can be their big sister who they know they can depend on and will always be there, fighting for them."The people I met last time I was in Africa inspired me more than anything in my life. I cried a lot. It was extremely emotional and it changed me. It was heartbreaking but also heart lifting."
The Poker Face hitmaker attended the New York Mets' clash with the San Diego Padres at Citi Field stadium in Queens, arriving covered up in a leather jacket and taking a seat in the stands.
But the singer soon became annoyed with the attention she was gathering in the general admission area and moved to Jerry Seinfield's private box, where she shocked fellow baseball fans by casting off her clothes and prancing around in a skimpy bra and underpants.
Gaga reportedly cursed at photographers who tried to take her picture, and gave a one-fingered salute to the crowd throughout the rest of the game, according to the New York Post.A source tells the newspaper, "She was psyched (excited) to go to the game, but she felt it was unfair that she was seated right by the paparazzi... She went up to the box (where the photographers were) and said, 'F**k you! F**k you!' to the photographers..."
Zero budget but 100% good music. He's French Canadian. Name is Sydney B. Directed and edited by Sidney B. "Without you" from the upcoming EP "Join My Revolution!" - available soon. I love originality and he's got it! He will do well with the Much/MTV crowd as he has that Karl Wolf flair. very smooth R&B.

This is truly Canada's Hip-Hop beef of the CENTURY!
Listen as Big Page comes straight about all the rumors on his feud with Rapper Drake and all the controversies with the song "I'm Still Fly." The rumors, the devil's advocacy with fans, The L'il Wayne connection, The P. Reign diss song and his return diss song plus how our 9 year old Music Director KJ the Kid Reporter aims to end the feud.
- MuchMusic announced today that two big Canadians have been added to the 2010 MMVAs presenter roster. Jonathan Toews, fresh off of his Stanley Cup win with the Chicago Blackhawks last night, adds his winning touch to the already stacked presenters list at the 2010 MUCHMUSIC VIDEO AWARDS. TV star and Toronto’s own Shenae Grimes is also set to present. Toews has had a whirlwind year, winning a Gold Medal with Team Canada at the 2010 Olympic Games and receiving the honour as best forward in the tournament.
Combs is determined to make sure fans see him differently in the future. He tells the Los Angeles Times, "People have this perception of me - wh ich is my fault - of maybe a rapper or champagne-sipping and Hamptons and white fur and just cliche type of things that are just kind of old and dated and corny, which isn't how I am today, you know? "That was just part of my image for a second. It wasn't who Sean is. Yo u evolve. Like, I need to retire my diamond necklace and fur jacket now. Things change. Times change."
The former American Idol winner took home the Performance of the Year trophy for her rendition of Temporary Home in a CMT special, as well as the biggest prize of the night, Video of the Year, for Cowboy Casanova.
The event in Nashville, Tennessee was kicked off by host Kid Rock who told the crowd, "The party has just begun!" before performing a medley of his hits with several surprise guests, including Hank Williams, Jr.,
He tells Rap-up.com, "Yeah, I would like to work with her. It'd be cool .. I think she's fresh. I haven't seen that before. What she's doing now i s new, with all the crazy dress codes and all that stuff. "A lot of things in music/entertainment are recycled. It's gonna sound like a diss, but it's no disrespect that you would see Lil Wayne wear a l ittle black vest and that hat. I saw Cyndi Lauper wearing that; it was (just) on a different artist. And even the glasses that Jay-Z had on, that is Frank Sinatra. These are all iconic pieces coming back."
The rapper, real name Joseph Cartagena, recently listed his $2 million mansion in Miami, Florida, and online gossips were qu ick to speculate the star had run out of cash. But Joe is adamant he doesn't need to sell the property - he is simply moving so his wife can be "closer to the beach".
He tells Allhiphop.com, "I'm selling my mansion, and I got a crib (house) like everyone else in the world. I'm selling my home like everyone else in the world. Yeah, you know my wife she wants to move back towards the beach, we (moved) out a little west in the suburbs so you know... a man just trying to live, just trying to survive, man."
Editors at U.S. tabloid The Globe sparked a storm this week when they published pictures of the tragic Diff'rent Strokes star in a coma in hospital shortly before his death. Robinson says, "There are certain elements of the media that have gone wild, that have gone crazy. I think it's an injustice in a certain way be cause there's a point in a person's life that things are private and they should remain that way." Coleman died of a brain haemorrhage on 28 May (10) after slipping into a coma following a fall at his home in Utah.
The legal papers, filed in a Calgary court, claim bosses at Keystone re ached out to the rockers last September (09) in a bid to plan new concert s, but received no response. The lawsuit alleges the company lost money and seeks $6 million in damages for lost ticket sales and profits for the five conc erts, according to the Toronto Sun. Aerosmith kick off a European tour on Thursday (10Jun10) in Sweden, bef ore embarking on a series of North American shows, including one concert in Canada, in July (10).
Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke is warning the music industry is on the brink of collapse, insisting young musicians should resist signing record deals because the major labels will "completely fold" within months.
The British rockers broke away from their longtime label, EMI, in 2007 and went on to embrace the new digital era with the release their seventh album, In Rainbows, which they offered up over the internet and allowed fans to choose the price. Yorke has now issued a warning to upcoming artists, urging them not to sign traditional record deals because they would be tying themselves to "the sinking ship."
In an interview for a new high school textbook called The Rax Active Citizen Toolkit, which aims to inspire youngsters to become more politically literate, Yorke claims the music industry is on the verge of a major crisis and could collapse completely within "months".
He says, "It will be only a matter of time - months rather than years - before the music business establishment completely folds. (It will be) no great loss to the world."
K’naan - the pride of Canada whose song Wavin’ Flag has become the anthem for the World Cup of soccer - Shakira, the Black Eyed Peas and Alicia Keys are some of the artists scheduled to appear in the FIFA World Cup Kickoff Celebration Concert, Thursday from South Africa.
The concert will air live across Canada on TLN (Telelatino), which is the official multilingual broadcaster for the tournament. It’s an evening concert in South Africa, which means early afternoon or late morning in Canada, depending on where you live.
The concert will repeat later Thursday on TLN, and on Friday as well.
The three-hour event takes place at the newly renovated Orlando Stadium in Soweto/Johannesburg.World Cup games begin Friday on CBC and TLN.
Rapper Drake has opened up about his short-lived fling with Rihanna, accusing the sexy singer of using him like "a pawn".
The pair sparked rumours of a romance last year after they were spotted enjoying a night out in New York together following Rihanna's split from Chris Brown.
Drake - real name Aubrey Graham - reveals the relationship began when the Bajan beauty asked him to write a song for her, although they never publicly confirmed they were dating.
But Drake now admits the singer left him heartbroken.
He tells the New York Times, "I was a pawn. You know what she was doing to me? She was doing exactly what I've done to so many women throughout my life, which is show them quality time, then disappear. I was like, 'Wow, this feels terrible.'"
So Drake and Rihanna did date..mmm.....So where does that leave me? I am like their mom. Both are the same age as my kids.
The news was allegedly sparked by a series of emails from an organisation called the London Music Group, which claimed Boyle had scheduled the shows to make up for scrapping her Australian promotional tour last month (May10) due to fatigue. But Boyle's manager Andy Stephens is adamant the announcement is fake - because the Scottish singer currently has no plans to tour Down Under.
He says, "Contrary to reports, we have not announced any Australian-New Zealand dates. Neither are there any plans to do so this year. The story is 100 per cent false."
The religious elements in the clip have caused consternation amongst campaign groups including bosses at America's Catholic League, who have rel eased a statement slamming the star's efforts. It reads, "Lady Gaga is playing Madonna copy cat, squirming around half -naked with half-naked guys, abusing Catholic symbols - they're always Catholic symbols - while bleating out Alejandro enough times to induce vomit... She has now become the new poster girl for American decadence and Catholic bashing, sans (without) the looks and talent of her role model." But Gaga has hit back at the complaints, insisting she won't let the negative comments upset her.
In a series of posts on her Twitter.com page, she writes, "So many will try to destroy me. So many, over and over, coming in periods of greatness. But in this period, I cannot be broken... Prejudice is a disease. And when they come for you, or refuse your worth, I will be ready for their s tones..." The video's director Steven Klein has also spoken out following the neg ative reaction to the footage, and he's adamant Gaga did not intend to portray the Catholic church in a negative light. He tells MTV.com, "The religious symbolism is not meant to denote anyth ing negative, but represents the character's battle between the dark forces of this world and the spiritual salvation of the soul. Thus at the end of the film, she chooses to be a nun (and she swallows the rosary beads to represent) the desire to take in the holy."
Shakira toured classrooms and chatted to pupils, before giving a group of excited children a dance lesson, reports the Associated Press. And she also stressed the importance of education, telling reporters, "(The World Cup is) a great opportunity to bring all the attention to issues as important as education. Seventy-two million kids around the world (are) not able to attend school, of which 32 million are African. So this is our chance to make this World Cup's lasting legacy education for all."
Pinkett Smith tells AmbassadorMag.com, "I have always had a love for music, always, always, and always. I probably started to pursue it a little late in life. But it was always a passion of mine. I had always been too afraid to venture into music, but I decided when I was about 30 to just go for it. I started a metal band called Wicked Wisdom. I toured and I loved it. "But soon after, my kids' careers started taking off, so I sacrificed it. I am pleased to say my daughter, Willow, will be putting out an album soon and I look forward to enjoying music through her creations. So I am excited about that, and she's pretty awesome. She will be better at it then I ever could be anyway!"
OMG! I was actually there when Willow was born! Jaden is rapping with Justin Beiber too. These kids are stepping up their game!
Most single Black women feel like they don’t want to settle for less. Their standards are too high right now. They have to understand that successful Black men are kind of extinct. We’re important. It’s hard to find us so Black women have to bow down and let it be known that they gotta start working hard; they gotta start cooking and being down for they man more. They can’t just be running around with their head up in the air and passing all of us.
I have a brother that dates a White woman and he always be fucking with me about it saying, “Y’all gotta go through all that shit [but] my White woman is fine. She don’t give me no problems, she do whatever I say and y’all gotta do all that arguing and fighting and worry about all this other shit.”
My girl is Black and White. I guess the half White in her is where she still cooks and do all the shit that I say, so we make it. She just takes care of me and I like that. She don’t be begging and I don’t gotta buy her all this crazy ass shit. And she’s a smart girl too. She graduated from Columbia [University] and I like that about her so it’s cool. I’ve dated girls that will buy a $3,000 bag and don’t know how to pay it off on their credit cards. They walk around in these Louis Vuittons and red bottoms but they’re riding around in raggedy cars, so it’s just getting your priorities right. Read the rest of this shyt!
The rapper was arrested in July of 2007 after a performance at the Beacon Theater.
Police stopped his $250,000 Maybach Benz and found a loaded .40 caliber handgun in the car with the serial number scratched off.
Ja Rule, 34, has pleaded not guilty to criminal possession of a weapon.
Yesterday, Ja Rule suffered a loss in court with Manhattan State Supreme Court Justice Richard Carruthers ruled against his bid to challenge the DNA testing procedure of the weapon.
His lawyer Stacy Richman said she will appeal the ruling.
Richman also represented Lil Wayne, who was arrested by the NYPD on the same night in question, in a separate incident.
Lil Wayne also challenged the DNA procedure used to test the .40 caliber handgun also found in his car, but eventually pled guilty to attempted possession of a weapon.
Lil Wayne is currently serving an eight month sentence on Rikers Island.
Ja Rule will stand trial on the gun charge on August 18th. If convicted, he faces up to four years in prison.

Brandy began spending time with the Right Round hitmaker last year, but admitted she was reluctant to "commit" to the rapper because she didn't want to end up heartbroken.
And now she's called off their romance in a bid to focus on her family and career.
She says, "I don't have a rapper boyfriend named Flo Rida. I am very much about myself. I have to focus on what I need to do."Brandy has previously dated producer Robert Smith, with whom she has a daughter, and basketball player Quentin Richardson.
The former Making The Band star, who battled to land a place in Da Band in the second series of Sean 'Diddy' Combs' MTV show, alleges she and T-Pain co-wrote Hudson's tune What's Wrong (Go Away), which featured on the Oscar-winner's self-titled 2008 debut album.
Stokes claims she originally recorded the track, and was stunned when she found out the hip-hop star had signed a deal to allow Hudson to use the song and failed to give her a credit.
She has now filed a lawsuit at Missouri Eastern District Court alleging T-Pain - real name Faheem Rasheed Najm - asking to be named as co-writer of the track.
In the lawsuit, Stokes' lawyer Eric F. Kayira, claims, "The exploitation of musicians is a story as old as the music and recording industry itself... Unfortunately, too often in today's popular music culture, the fame and notoriety of some performers may eclipse the considerable contributions and integrity of developing artists/writers, often at the expense of the legal and moral rights of lesser known co-authors.
"Only slight deviations in the lyrics exist between Stokes' version and the released version, whereas the whole musical composition is the exact same on which Stokes collaborated with Najm."
Stokes has named the rapper and his Nappy Boy Productions/Nappy Boy Publishing companies in the suit, as well as Universal Music-Z Tunes. She is seeking a songwriting credit and royalty money from the track, as well as legal fees and costs, according to Allhiphop.com.
New York-based DJ Absolut, real name Shaune Muir, has filed suit claiming he is owed royalties because a beat he created was allegedly used in the 2009 hit without his permission.
Muir alleges he handed his composition to Kia Shine in 2008 after the rapper/producer agreed to give him 20 per cent of any royalty payments made from the beat's use, but he had no idea the music had allegedly been used in Drake's song until he heard it on the radio.
The legal papers, obtained by the New York Daily News, claim Shine has earned $1 million from Best I Ever Had after secretly agreeing a deal to receive a 25 per cent stake of the track's copyright.
Muir's legal representatives filed a breach of contract lawsuit at Queens Supreme Court last week after reportedly failing to get in contact with Shine, real name Nakia Coleman.Muir's lawyer, Brian Levy, says, "Kia Shine needs to uphold his end of the agreement. It wasn't my client's desire to resort to legal action to get him to do it. We've reached out to him, but he has not chosen to respond." Drake has previously publicly denied Shine had anything to do with Best I Ever Had.
Amazing how these things happen a week before an album drops! SMH.
Chris Brown has postponed the European leg of his current tour after he was denied entry into the U.K. The Kiss Kiss hitmaker was due to bring his Fan Appreciation Tour to Europe but he's been forced to call off the dates after British immigration officials refused to grant him a work visa.
It is believed Brown's application was rejected due to a conviction stemming from his fight with Rihanna last year. The singer was sentenced to six months community labour, five years probation, and ordered to stay away from the Umbrella hitmaker after pleading guilty to felony assault.
A statement from his spokesperson reads, "Due to issues surrounding his work visa, (the) Ireland and United Kingdom leg of Chris Brown's Fan Appreciation Tour has been postponed. Chris looks forward to performing for his fans abroad in the near future and thanks them for their continued support."The trek was due to begin in Glasgow, Scotland on Wednesday, before stopping in London, Birmingham and Manchester, England as well as Cork and Dublin in Ireland.
This is getting sadder and sadder. Now what? Will they let Chris into Canada?

The In Da Club hitmaker made headlines when he posted pictures on his online blog showing his skeletal frame while shooting new movie Things Fall Apart, in which he plays a footballer diagnosed with cancer.
The rapper lost 54 pounds (24 kilograms) by surviving on a liquid diet, but 50 Cent proved he's been busy piling the weight back on by showing off a healthier look at a show in Denver on Wednesday.He told the crowd, "I've been eating, I'll be back in shape in no time."
The Baby hitmaker, 16, appeared as part of the summer concert series for breakfast program The Today Show - and was shocked when anchors told him girls with 'Bieber fever' had slept outside on the city streets since Wednesday to get prime seating for the performance.
The singer called the turnout "crazy", before greeting female fans, who cried at the shake of his hand, before he took the stage.
And the screaming teen mob was so loud, fellow guests - funnyman Jonah Hill and actress Elisabeth Moss - cut a promotional interview for their new film Get Him to the Greek short to comment on the frenzy.
The 17 year old was invited to perform her new single Can't Be Tamed on Britain's Got Talent in front of the show's creator Simon Cowell and fellow judge Piers Morgan on Thursday night.
But she stunned viewers of the family-friendly program with a raunchy routine in which she cavorted on stage in a skimpy basque and ripped fishnet stockings, and pretended to kiss a female dancer.
At one stage during the performance, a male dancer grabbed at the Hannah Montana star's breasts - and she pushed his hand away in mock surprise.
Last weekend, Cyrus shocked fans during a gig in Lisbon, Portugal by wearing a skin-tight leotard onstage. Last month, a video showing her dirty dancing with a 44-year-old movie producer in a bar when she was aged 16 surfaced online.The teen star is currently on a promotional tour of Europe for her upcoming album, Can't Be Tamed, which is due for release later this month.
FANS WALK OUT OF WHITNEY HOUSTON'S CONCERT;MUSIC CRITIC SAYS SHE LOOKED LIKE SHE WAS ABOUT TO EXPLODE!
The R&B star's highly-anticipated comeback trek has been blighted by poor reviews and criticism from some fans that her vocals are too weak to carry the show.
She scrapped a string of European concerts in April after she was hospitalized with nose and throat problems, and was later booed by an audience in Birmingham, England because her singing was off-key.
Now she is facing renewed concerns for her health after hordes of fans in Copenhagen left her show midway through, complaining about Houston's poor performance.
She then reportedly turned on a section of the audience when some fans began booing as she made a speech paying tribute to Michael Jackson.
According to the Copenhagen Post, critics from "all of the major media outlets" in the country slammed the concert, insisting Houston's vocals were weak and tuneless. Critic Thomas Soie Hansen, of the Berlingske Tidende newspaper, writes: "She looked and sounded like a person who doesn't have many years left to live. At the end of the show she looked like she was ready to explode."
Poor Whitney, I hope she is not back on drugs or anything like that. Pls put her in your prayers!
