February 1, 2019
One sweet surprise of being on the 2019 “Soul Train Cruise” was a sneak peek at the first installment of the 10-episode Don Cornelius/“Soul Train” mini-series “American Soul.” The teaser was so well received on the ship that two encore presentations were required. The fast-paced richly detailed show premiers on BET Tuesday, February 5th, starring Sinqua Walls as entrepreneurial impresario Don Cornelius with other characters played by Kelly Price, Kelly Rowland and more. Musical Director for the show is Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds and the script was handled by Devon Gregory.
