The Soul Train Cruise, sponsored by Centric television network, was an event to remember. Supporters and fans said that the stars were in arms reach willing to talk, hug and sign autographs.
The Don Cornelius Foundation hosted the second Soul Train Voyage aboard Holland America Cruise Line to Cabo San Lucas & Puerto Vallarta with a sold out ship. They were even selling tickets for upcoming February 2014 cruise starring Charlie Wilson at discounted rates to guest aboard the trip, so it’s sure to be another sold out cruise. Tony Cornelius said that it leaves from Fort Lauderdale and is sure to be great!
Our associate LaCora Stephens found out that Jeffrey Osborne is an avid recipient of the EURweb daily newsletter! She enjoyed watching Jeffrey get close and personal with his fans by asking volunteers in the audience to “Whoo Whoo Whoo”; he was awesome! Osborne joined in on the tribute to Don Cornelius, led a drumming seminar with legendary drummers Darryl “Footz” Woolfolk and Ricky Lawson and participated in a Q & A with Jonathan Butler & Jennifer Holiday. Jonathan & Jennifer delighted the crowd with their effortless singing while Gladys Knight mesmerized the fans with her sex appeal… “Yes, she still got it!” She was joined by her hilarious brother onstage, whom stated, “It’s hard out here for a PIP”, but I guess it isn’t that hard; he’s featured on her new c.d. which is out now! Her new c.d.: Another Journey has a new sound with old school flavor for all ages to enjoy!
The Whispers, The Ohio Players, Con Funk Shun, Lakeside, Bar Kays , Dazz Band and more were all spectacular! The Whispers mentioned that you should be a part of the Soul Train cruise for the gift bags and to meet the other wonderful fans! Also, Regina Belle, Freddie Jackson and Billy Paul wowed the people with their talent and humor. They are all transparent and down to earth. Some even participated in the Halloween costume contest, bingo, wine-tasting, mixology class, comedy show and even danced at Club Soul Train!
“This was an experience of a lifetime to see legends, trail blazers and icons perform and interview all together in the name of Don Cornelius’ Love, Peace & Soul. He is a man to whom we owe much respect and gratitude. Seeing them pay honor to his legacy Soul Train was beautiful!” explained, LaCora.
