James Brown gliding on the dance floor, the Jackson 5 systematically popping and locking to âDancing Machine,â or a colorful cast of dancers rhythmically moving down the soul train line were all a piece of the Soul Train story. Narrated by the sultry voiced of Don Cornelius, Soul Train became our connection to the R&B/Soul music and culture that made us move, cry and think. Soul Train had the power of radio, internet, and television all in one because they stayed true to the culture and the people. It was able to make an hour on Saturday an experience that could not be missed. Soul Train informed, set trends and gave you artist to watch. âSingersroom is humbled and proud to be nominated for such a prestigious award,â says Gary Gentles, Co-Founder/Managing Director of Singersroom. âTo be recognized for doing what we love by our peers is whatâs going to push us to work even harder to be a vital part of the R&B/Soul culture today.â âWe take pride in maintaining that same premise of Soul Train which is to connect the people with the James Browns, Aretha Franklins and Michael Jacksons of our day,â says Deyior Dunbar, Sr. V.P. of Marketing/Creative Director of Singersroom. Through events such as Singersroom Live and Acoustic Conversation as well as online programs such as 30 under 30, Next Diva and Artist Watch, Singersroom has been able to showcase and highlight artists such as Bilal, Teedra Moses, Chrisette Michele, Jesse Boykins III, Melanie Fiona, Johnta Austin, K. Michelle, Miguel, Mike Posner, Jasmine Sullivan, Dondria and more. Our goal is to constantly deliver âthe newâ to music consumers using that blueprint Soul Train gave us on those special Saturday mornings. We might have gone from 12-inch records and a soulful hour on television to MP3s and 24/7 of the Singersroom experience but it is still about love, peace and soul. Join us on this fantastic journey as we continue to give the world not just the past and present but the future of the R&B/Soul Culture. âTo know that our readers are involved in the voting process makes it extremely special and gratifying,â says Adeniyi Omisore, Co-Founder/Editor-in-Chief.
