Uncle Charlie Wilson stopped by to share his Don Cornelius and ‘Soul Train’ memories with EURweb

*Covering for EURweb at the 2012 “Soul Train Awards” in Las Vegas this year was our associate, Cherise Nicole, also known as CNikky.

(By the way, the show airs this Sunday at 8pm E/P on Centric and BET)

Anyway, Cherise just had to ask some of your favorite celebrities about their fondest memories of Soul Train.  Charlie Wilson, SWV, Ginuwine and Tank, Tony Rock, Luke James, Leah Labelle, Kid (Kid N Play), Goapele and 80′s Diva Karyn White all stopped to talk about the Soul Train line, Don Cornelius, the Soul Train dancers and lip singing!

Karyn White:
“I remember Jody Watley, Jeffrey Daniels and Shalimar..rocking the big hair in the 80′s…I still got the bog hair!”

SWV:
“One thing I remember about “Soul Train” is everyone had to lip sing and the only people they let sing were Marvin Gaye and Patti Labelle! And I couldn’t figure that out!  I’m like we got a little something to Hey Don!”

Christopher “Kid” Reid (Kid N Play):
“The first time we were on..they allowed Play and I to go down the ‘Soul Train Line.’  They never let artist do that!….I was like, I could die today.  You couldn’t tell me I didn’t make it.  I’m gettin it!  I’m riding round and I’m gettin it!”

Let’s go to the video to find out what the other celebs, including Charlie Wilson, had to say about their “Soul Train” experiences:
