Posted by: cnikky


Cherise Nicole (CNikky) and our partners EURweb were at the 2012 Soul Train Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada (which airs on Sunday, November 25th on BET and Centric).  We had to ask some of your favorite celebrities about their fondest memories of Soul Train.  Charlie Wilson, SWV, Ginuwine and Tank, Tony Rock, Luke James, Leah Labelle, Kid (Kid N Play), Goapele and 80’s Diva Karyn White all stopped to talk about the Soul Train line, Don Cornelius, the Soul Train dancers and lip singing!

Karyn White:

“I remember Jody Watley, Jeffrey Daniels and Shalimar..rocking the big hair in the 80’s…I still got the bog hair!”


“One thing I remember about Soul Train is everyone had to lip sing and the only people they let sing were Marvin Gaye and Patti Labelle! And I couldn’t figure that out!  I’m like we got a little something to Hey Don!”

Christopher “Kid” Reid (Kid N Play):

“The first time we were on..they allowed Play and I to go down the Soul Train Line.  They never let artist do that!….I was like, I could die today.  You couldn’t tell me I didn’t make it.  I’m gettin it!  I’m riding round and I’m gettin it!”
