Brandy Wows the Soul Train Awards
Did you guys miss this year’s Soul Train Awards? If you did, then here is your chance to watch one of the evening’s standout moments: Brandy performing an almost ten-minute medley of some of her greatest hits. In addition to Baby, Baby, Baby, I Wanna Be Down and The Boy is Mine, Brandy performed Sitting on Top of the World, for which rapper turned preacher, Mase, joined her onstage.
It’s the end of the line for the Soul Train Music Awards, which have largely been ignored by the African-American stars the event aims to honor. A spokeswoman said the show would not go ahead with its 22nd annual installment this year, but a reason was not specified. At last year’s event in Pasadena, most of the winners did not show up, including such A-listers as Beyonce Knowles, Mary J. Blige, John Legend and Gnarls Barkley. The show takes place a few weeks after the Grammys, the music industry’s top awards. Similarly themed ceremonies like the BET Awards have also provided some competition.
