Soul and R&B sounds flowed throughout the night.

Just because the Soul Train Awards 2022 are over doesn’t mean the music has to stop. In honor of yet another fantastic celebration of soul and r&b hosted by comedian and actor Deon Cole, we’re taking a look back at some of the most memorable performances from that night. From veteran musician Chanté Moore to gospel singer Tasha Cobbs Leonard, this year’s event featured several industry heavy hitters.

  • Chanté Moore

    Legendary R&B singer and songwriter Chantè Moore delivered a powerhouse performance of a medley of her most classic hits, including “Love’s Taken Over,” “It’s Alright.” and her signature record, “Chanté Got a Man.”

  • Q

    Rising Florida-based r&b singer and songwriter Q impressed fans with a sultry rendition of his latest single, “Today,” putting his show stopping falsetto vocals on full display.

  • Soul Cypher

    The Soul Train Awards 2002 Soul Cypher featured several of the genre’s most talented musicians and burgeoning artists you should get familiar with the likes of  Muni Long, Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Durand Bernarr, and Alex Vaughn.  The annual segment was hosted by legendary musician and producer DJ D-Nice.

  • SiR

    West Coast singer and songwriter SiR turned up the heat during the Soul Train Awards 2022 with a sexy performance of his latest record, “Nothing Even Matters.” The rising star later turned up the notch after heading into the audience, where he serenaded r&b and soul singer Ari Lennox.

  • Xscape

    Legendary 90s R&B group Xscape were, rightfully, this year’s recipient of the Soul Train Awards ‘Lady of Soul’ award, honoring their contributions to the industry and their influence that can still be seen in rising artists today.  After a few kind words from frequent collaborator and super producer Jermaine Dupri, who presented the prestigious award, the ladies, Kandi Burruss, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, LaTocha Scott, and Tamika Scott, took to the stage for an out-of-this-world performance of a medley of their biggest hits.
