Don Cornelius (September 27, 1936 – February 1, 2012)

Don Cornelius was best known as a gentleman who influenced the lives of many African Americans around the world. Cornelius wrote, produced, and hosted “Soul Train,” a show that recognized the talents of black artists. That show inspired us to ‘boogie,’ make great music and took a stand on issues he felt were important to our culture.

Our hearts go out to the friends and family of Mr. Donald Cortez “Don” Cornelius. You will be missed and your legacy lives on. We hope to See You On The Flip Side…with Love, Peace and SOUL!
