Let’s give it up for Tisha Campbell and Tichina Arnold for securing another year at the “Soul Train Awards” as the honorable hosts. This year celebrates the 50th anniversary of the award ceremony which ‘recognizes the best in Soul, R&B, and Hip Hop from both established industry legends and the next generation of promising artists.’
The legendary best friend duo has hit a hot spot for the ladies. “Returning to my hometown where it all began for us as young girls and hosting the iconic ‘Soul Train Awards’ at the Apollo is a truly a childhood dream come true,” said Arnold. “I’m honored to stand beside Tisha and take our place in history hosting and creatively producing such an iconic show.”
Not only are the ladies hosting, they are also producing. “Producing and hosting the Soul Train Awards for the last three years with my childhood friend has truly been one of the high points of my life,” said Campbell. “Yet, upon hearing Tichina and I would be filming at the World Famous Apollo this year, we literally lost our minds with excitement. It is already an extreme honor to be synonymous with Don Cornelius’s legacy, and now, to also walk in the footsteps of the multitude of African-American talent that graced the Apollo stage is mind-blowing to both of us!”
We are keeping a close eye regarding the lineup of the show. The 2021 “Soul Train Awards” premieres Sunday, November 28 at 8 pm ET/PT on BET and BET Her.
