Soul Train Flash Mob Recap – Don Cornelius tribute in New York’s Times Square February 4, 2012 [VIDEO]
February 5, 2012
What a fitting tribute it was to see hoards of afro wearing, bell bottom sporting lovers of soul music and the legacy of Don Cornelius. As planned, at 4:00pm, the theme to Soul Train began playing and 2 long lines of revelers began the funky procession. The crowd was a who’s who of New York’s music and cultural communities including Nelson George and dream hampton among many others. It was truly a site to see. Over the weekend, more and more love has been shown to the music and cultural icon who died recently. Congrats to DJ Jon Quick and all of the organizers who pulled this together! We are once again reminded of the incredible power of the internet and community when used for the right purposes. Kudos fellow soulheads!

We are so excited and happy to see such a show of support and love for this great man, whose contributions changed not on the music landscape but the social one as well.
R.I.P. Don Cornelius
Wishing you everlasting Love, Peace, and SOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUL!!!
