As a kid, every Saturday we’d hurry up and do our chores so that we could plop down on the sofa (more like the shag rug in our living room) and watch Soul Train. We couldn’t wait to check out the clothes, hairstyles, and steps of the coolest kids on the planet aka The Soul Train dancers!
With Michelle Williams playing Diana Ross and Kelly Rowland portraying Gladys Knight, Bobby Brown as Rufus Thomas (“Do the Funky Chicken”) BET is gearing up for “American Soul,” the story of Don Cornelius’ Soul Train. Back to back episodes beginning February 5!
Don Cornelius was the mastermind of the show and every week we would mouth the words with him, “You can bet your last money…It’s gonna be a stone gas, honey! …And in parting, we wish you Love, Peace and SOOOUL!”
