The Soul Train Has Reached Its Last Stop: R.I.P Don Cornelius

February 1, 2012 § 4 Comments

“Soul Train” founder and host Don Cornelius is dead from an apparent suicide attempt with a shotgun. He was 75.

His body was found in his Sherman Oaks, CA home on Wednesday morning. This news is very shocking, seeing how today is the first day of Black History Month.

“Soul Train” began in Chicago in 1970 and ran all the way through 2006. The predominantly African-American show displayed talented acts that ranged from singing to breakdancing. It also gave exposure to artists like Stevie Wonder, Ike and Tina Turner, Marvin Gaye and many more.

Since its start, “Soul Train” and Don Cornelius became household names.

May he rest in peace.
