Singer Trina Johnson-Finn Details Time in South American Prison

Las Vegas-based singer and tribute artist Trina Johnson-Finn traveled to Suriname in 2009 to perform a tribute show to famous recording artist Toni Braxton. When she took the stage angry fans threw bottles and booed Johnson-Finn until she left the stage. A concert promoter in Suriname sold tickets to the show promoting Johnson-Finn as the actual Toni Braxton. Fans were upset and the incident led to Johnson-Finn being jailed for more than four months on charges of fraud. Her name was cleared and she was eventually released and the show promoter convicted. This weekend Trina Finn-Johnson premiers a new tribute to Whitney Houston. She also performs in "Vegas:The Show" and with the Family Stone. Trina Finn-Johnson joins us to talk about her new show and being in jail in Suriname.

You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
