TLC’s Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas is hosting a seven-hour Soul Train marathon, Saturday, 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. in honor of the late, great Don Cornelius, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Cornelius was found dead Tuesday at his home in Los Angeles, CA from a self-inflicted cranial gunshot wound.
Chili’s segments will open and close each episode. The former ’90’s girl group member, who recently appeared on VH1’s Single Ladies, says be prepared to see her have a lot of fun with the tribute:
“I put a little of my Chilli sauce on it,” she told the AJC. “I did my best impression of Don Cornelius. I can’t get my voice that low but I tried!”
Chilli recounts that Cheryl Song, the long-haired Asian American dancer was inspirational to her growing up and that she worked hard to learn her dance moves:
“My hair was long but not that long,” she said. “I’d wrap a towel around my head and it would be down to my butt.”
Kool & the Gang, Gladys Knight & the Pips and En Vogue will all be featured on the show.
