The Soul Train Awards returns with a stellar two hour show that bridges the gap between the soulful sounds of yesterday and today; acting as a hybrid of a traditional show with an “honors” show format. Showcasing the evolution of Soul Train’s impact on musical history from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and today, the new Soul Train Awards is all about the melodic marriage of music and dance.
Media mogul Wendy Williams will host SOUL TRAIN AWARDS 2014, celebrating and honoring R&B legends and soul music’s brightest new stars. On November 7, 2014 at the Orleans Arena our host and performers will take the stage as they welcome the viewers to a show that feels more like a dance party than your traditional awards show. The set will be crafted to resemble a modern interpretation of the Soul Train set we all know and love complete with the dancers, scramble board and the legendary Soul Train line, all strategically present in the show. The audience is made up of Soul Train dancers, truly making this an interactive experience. From time to time the infamous Soul Train line will make an appearance as the audience dancers take their turn showing off their moves!
The party kicks into high gear from the very beginning as the red carpet opens. Everyone is a star and is equally integral to the soul experience so of course everyone walks the carpet and shows off their style and flair from the performers, presenters, celebrity guests, to the audience dancers. It’s all about embodying the spirit of the Soul Train brand.
Paying homage to the musical elite, the Soul Train Awards will honor three Icons that have a timeless songbook, established a musical and performance standard, have impacted the industry in a significant way, and are still a relevant influence on the music scene today.
The Soul Train Awards is guaranteed to deliver Love, Peace, and SOUL!
