Don Cornelius was a legend in the making when he started “Soul Train” over 40 years ago and BET’s new show “American Soul” brings to life the behind the scenes work of this legend. Recently, attending the premiere, I was already so excited from seeing the trailer that watching the first episode with my fellow media peers had me wanting more.
Following the premiere, there was a panel hosted by Emil Wilbelkin along with the some of the cast members such as Sinqua Walls, Kelly Price and Jason Dirden. They gave us even more insight and anticipation into the series. In addition to the stars of the cast, we were privileged to have the late legend’s son, Tony Cornelius in attendance and talk a bit about his father’s legacy.
I don’t know where you will be tonight but if you need to DVR, make sure to tune into “American Soul” on BET, 9pm ET.
Love, Peace & SOUL!
