2015 Soul Train Music Award Recap

This year’s Soul Train Music Awards was one you did not want to miss. Host Erykah Badu led the hippest trip around. The house was brought down over and over again with stunning performances from Erica Campbell, Jasmine Sullivan, Jeremih and Fantasia just to name a few. Musical Legends such as Bobby Brown, After 7, Tevin Campbell, and R. Kelly. Empire’s very own V. Bozeman blew everyone away performing her song “Smile.”

Big winners of the night include The Weekend winning Album of the Year and Best Male R&B/Soul Artist and Bruno Mars winning Song of the Year and Video of the Year. Best Dance Performance went to no other than Silento with his #1 hit “Watch Me (Whip/NaeNae)”. Jidenna walked away with Best New Artist. Other Winners included Jill Scott, Tyrese, Kendrick Lamar, Common,and John Legend.

After 15 years of organic soul music, Jill Scott was honored with the first-ever Lady of Soul Award, and for his contributions to R&B for 20 years plus, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds received the night’s Legend Award.

This year’s Soul Train Awards was indeed a night of firsts, with the first-ever “Soul Cypher” featuring the oh so lovely Chrisette Michele, Lalah Hathaway, the legendary Eddie Levert, K-Ci Hailey, and Erykah Badu on the ones and twos. Of course, each of these musicians swooned us with their cypher delivery, and each brought their own fresh take on soul music.
