Soul Train Creator Don Cornelius Has Died [video]

Don Cornelius changed the way the world saw R & B/Urban dance and music.  He was a vision changer!   Don Cornelius was found dead, early this morning in his home after police responded to a gun shot.

Growing up in Detroit, Soul Train for me was a regular Saturday afternoon experience.  After lunch I would sit down in front of the television anticipating that loud booming voice say the words ”It’s time for  SOOOOOOOUL Train”, in that long, drawn out style!  As I remember I would say the words right along with him.  Don Cornelius is dead at the age of 75 from a self inflicted gun shot wound.
