The Soul Train Awards really doesn’t get enough credit for consistently being one of the best celebrations of Black Culture. The Soul Train Awards is for us, by us and this year wasn’t any different.
Goddess/Songstress/Goddess Erykah Badu served as both host and executive producer of this year’s ceremonies. But those duties didn’t stop her from gracing the stage with future Soul Train Award Winner Big Baby D.R.A.M. to perform the track “Wi-Fi” from his debut album.

Other performances included India Arie, Mase, Anderson Paak, and an amazing opening performance by Dru Hill. Teddy Riley also performed some of the hits that he has given us with guest appearances that included Bobby Brown, Guy, Doug E Fresh, and a few others.

The biggest performance of the evening has to go to Brandy. She performed some of the biggest hits of her 20+ year career. If you missed it, don’t worry.  Just click HERE to check it out.
