Boogie Down On Broadway! ‘Soul Train’ Fans Pay Homage to Don Cornelius

February 5, 2012  |  

If you live in NYC and are a lover of “Soul Train” you may have been on of the thousands of fans that boogied on  down Broadway wearing afro wigs and bell bottoms on while recounting your favorite episodes in tribute to Soul Train’s late creator, Don Cornelius.

About 100 dancers descended on Times Square in a “flash mob” organized through the Internet. As startled tourists looked on, they recreated one of the show’s “Soul Train lines” in which people would take turns dancing toward a TV camera while showing off their most outrageous moves.

“Don Cornelius was a big influence in my life, and I just wanted to pay tribute,” said disc jockey Jon Quick, as he held up a speaker blasting disco grooves. “He was playing the music that nobody else wanted to play. He was an amazing man.”

Cornelius, 75, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound on Wednesday. He had suffered from health problems, a difficult divorce, and had pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor spousal battery charge in 2009.
