Trey Parker was born and raised in Auburn, Alabama. His entertainment career started at seven when he landed the job to hype the crowd at football games as the University of Auburn’s Mascot “Little Aubie”.
Also a natural born actor, Trey exhausted the cities creative avenues from musical theater as the leads in “Winnie the Pooh”, “Grease”, “Scrooge”, and “Music Man” to local television spots and commercials.
With idols like Michael Jackson and watching Soul Train, the fluid movements of rhythm easily became a part of his style. The style incorporated with his own pop influence was immediately recognized and appreciated by being accepted at the School of Performing Arts in New York. Next in line was an honorable full scholarship to the Broadway Dance Center.
Trey began landing national TV commercials such as McDonalds, Coca-Cola, Teddy Ruxpin, Roy Rogers, and Toro just to name a few. He was also chosen for Nordstrom’s and Macy’s ad campaigns. Off-Broadway plays include “Peter Pan” (lead) and “A House in the Woods”. During his stay in New York he was chosen to appear on TV specials with Emmanuel Lewis and Debbie Allen.
After conquering one coast, he headed out west to Los Angeles, California at the age of fifteen. He was teen sensation Tiffany’s lead dancer on the New Kids on the Block tour. He appeared in made for TV movies such as “Caddie Woodlawn”, “Please God I’m only Seventeen”, and “Straight at Ya” hosted by Kirk Cameron. He also landed several episodes on prime time televisions such as “Baywatch”, “Doogie Hoswer MD”, “Thirty Something”, and “The Judge”. This lead to landing a lead role on the NBC prime time series “Hull High”. Disney then immediately signed him to a three picture deal beginning with a lead role in their musical drama “Newsies”.
Trey still found the time to strive to form the very successful group E.Y.C (Express Yourself Clearly). MCA records quickly signed them to a global record deal breaking them out in Europe. E.Y.C. opened up for many renowned and respected patron of the music industry such as Prince, Whitney Houston, and The Backstreet Boys. This immediately opened doors for their own ventures, which forced E.Y.C to graciously turn down opening up for Michael Jackson to start their own international tour. Over the next three years they gained an incredible international fan base while traveling all around the world. E.Y.C. had over seven Top 20 Hits in Great Britain. Their success landed them an Australian Grammy Award for Best New International Act and won a Smash Hits Award in the United Kingdom. The group went Platinum in Southeast Asia after holding the #1 and #2 spots for weeks. E.Y.C’s high energy performances, constant crowd participation, and a strong loyalty to their fans helped them to achieve top status all over the world. Due to the take over of MCA records in America, E.Y.C came home for a much needed break. The group came back together for one last time for The Backstreet Boys Millennium Tour, the group went their separate ways shortly after.
