From Mama Badu taking a kneel, SWV, 112, the Soul Cypher, Toni Braxton’s tribute, the 2017 Soul Train Awards was beautiful! This was a night where I need it this type of energy to help me get through my studies and fuel my creativity.
I remember making it my goal to get home everyday just to record 106 & Park, when AJ and Free was hosting, so I can have my favorite music videos. I don’t even remember if YouTube existed. I think we just had MySpace at the time but that was the feeling I got tonight. I definitely had to record so that I can watch the entire show again specifically the Soul Cypher. That was life 🙂
I definitely am so grateful that Don Cornelious blessed us with this platform. I hope to see it return or something like it to give a stage to the up coming talent. I miss entertainment that directly fed your soul and made you feel good. Lets please make it great again 🙂
