Celebrity Statements On Don Cornelius’ Death

Rev. Al Sharpton:

“I am shocked and grief stricken by the reported news of the suicide of Don Cornelius, the creator of Soul Train. I have known him since I was19-years-old and James Brown had me speak on Soul Train. We have maintained a friendship for the last 38-years. He brought soul music and dance to the world in a way that it had never been shown and he was a cultural game changer on a global level. Had it not been for Don Cornelius we would not have ever transcended from the Chitlin circuit to become mainstream cultural trendsetters.”

Soul Train was the radio station of Black America for years. Don Cornelius is an idol. There will never be another one of him in television. God bless him. Don is a G. Respect.
