Welcome to Frank Pozen's Big Bad Blog. A lot of folks have been asking me to update them about my recovery. So I thought I would start a blog primarily to do that but also to talk about other topics of interest including the wrestling business and whatever else I can think of. I plan to update this on a regular basis so check back and leave a comment if you wish.

Yahoo LAUNCHCAST Song Of The Day-Trina Broussard
Song:Losing My Mind
Anyone who watches R & B and hip hop videos can tell you that singing ability isn't a priority these days. Add record company politics and things haven't gone too well for R & B singer Trina Broussard. She was born in Houston to a jazz guitarist dad and a jazz singer mom. She moved to Atlanta in 1990 and was a professional backup singer for most of the 90s. A song she performed in the film Love Jones got the attention of producer Jermaine Dupri. He signed her to his SoSoDef label. The single Love You So Much hit the R & B charts in 1999 but the album was never released. This is not the only time Dupri has dropped the ball on a potential major talent. Ask Alicia Keys. Trina went back to backup singing until she signed with Motown. Same Girl was released in 2004. Veteran engineer/mixer Commissioner Gordon produced the album. Losing My Mind was the single. Trina co-wrote the song with the writing producing team of Jamey Jaz & Rahsaan Patterson. Patterson is an excellent singer in his own right. It's a great song but unfortunately Motown president Kedar Massenburg was about to be replaced by Sylvia Rhone so it was not promoted properly. It's too bad but Trina Broussard is an excellent singer and she writes her own songs so I'm sure we'll hear from her in the future. There was no video for Losing My Mind but some guy has actually posted a video of his goldfish on Youtube using Losing My Mind as background music.
