Erykah Badu Hosts The Soul Train Awards – Three-peat

Once again, Erykah Badu is bringing her A game to hosting duties for BET’s Soul Train Awards. This year’s performers include Toni and Tamar Braxton, 112, Tank, SWV and Kirk Franklin. Solange is up for 7 awards and other nominees include SZA, Khalid, Bruno Mars, Khelani, Lalah Hathaway, Childish Gambino, Rihanna, Bryson Tiller, Beyonce, and others. This is the third time Badu has hosted in as many years and she is sure to bring the house down once again.
Meanwhile, she has been busy curating a Fela Kuti box set and having her name petitioned on change.org for a replacement for the name of a park in her native Dallas. The park’s named after Robert E. Lee and the petition emerged as a response to a Confederate statue being taken down. While the results have yet to be seen, Badu is staying active on social media and balancing her energies regardless. The live audience will get to catch her for the filming of the awards on Nov. 5th in Las Vegas. The Soul Train Music Awards airs on Sunday, November 26, 2017, on BET.
