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.
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.”
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.
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.
