The 2009 Soul Train Awards Returns To Centric, After A 2-Year Hiatus
The 2009 Soul Train Music Awards is back after a two-year-hiatus, celebrating the best in African American music and artistry. The show is planned to air on November 29, 2009 on the new network Centric, which is operated by BET and MTV ( both divisions of Viacom).
Terrance Howard and Taraji P. Henson will co-host the show, and tributes to R&B sensations Chaka Khan, Babyface and Charlie Wilson are scheduled to be in place.
This year the show will take place in Atlanta, GA, as opposed to the last show (in 2007) which was done in Los Angeles, CA. The awards show will be a two-hour celebration taped on November 3, 2009 at the Georgia World Congress Center.
“We are very proud to welcome the Soul Train Awards show to Centric,” says Centric General Manager and Exec VP Paxton Baker via AllHeadlineNews.com. ” The Soul Train brand is part of the very fabric of African American Culture, and has played a vital role in shaping the musical framework and tastes of Centric’s 25- to 54-year-old audience.”
This should be cool.
