The Soul Train Awards isn’t just about honoring soul music’s biggest and most successful entertainers. It’s also a platform to highlight burgeoning artists who will one day be some of the industry’s most influential musicians. Artists who’ve graced the BET Amplified stage, sponsored by Verizon, have all received the stamp of approval, signaling them as the next big thing in music.
During tonight’s celebration of soul and r&b music, all hosted by hilariously funny comedian and actor Deon Cole, rising r&b singer and actress Coco Jones, and singer-songwriter Q took the Amplified stage where viewers got just a glimpse of what each equally talented act had to offer.
Grammy Award-winning singer Lucky Daye introduced Coco, who gave a sultry performance of her latest single, “ICU,” and later in the show, platinum-selling R&B vocalist Queen Naija presented Q, who wowed the audience with his new record, “Today.”
