Initially I wanted to express my excitement about the Soul Train Awards and give it its well deserved glory, but the brains behind the magic is what struck out to me the most. And in good fashion it's just like the master of ceremony to steal the show! Ms. Erykah Badu, writer and producer of not just one of the most legendary television celebrations in music history but she's an etherical mastermind when it comes to delivering mesmerizing rhythms and flows.
She's a powerhouse all by herself but she always finds a way to include the cherry on top with a bold head wrap, uniquely designed hat, or overall bomb ass hair. She's a gentle beast that proclaims every ounce of the essence she's so thoroughly endows. I was just a little girl when I first heard her music but it was a voice I would never and still can't forget. The definition within her rasp bounced around each word effortlessly with such vibrancy leaving me replaying for more.
Like the finest of wine, she's a timeless classic that only continues to get better and better. I consider her to be both the berry and the juice! She's like sweet nectar dancing off the tips of honeycomb. She's soulful while still embarking the remnants of ancient treasures. With hits like "On and On", "Bag Lady", "Tyrone", and "Next Lifetime" it's definitely an easy feat for her to make you put your "Phone Down". On top of her golden vocals she's a social activist operating the B.L.I.N.D (Beautiful Love Incorporated Nonprofit Development) charity which provides creative opportunities and services within inner cities.
And let's not forget she has some pretty great acting skills too! She's an overall performer who graces anything she just so happens to touch. I mean what can we expect from a gentle soul who has no problem letting you know she's not with the $#!T. With her boldness, subliminal thought force, well-kept sexiness, and immaculate talent there's no need to question her continuous reign as the
Queen of Soul
