homage to the Soul Train Dancers and their Soul Train Line, which provided new dance styles to many Black kids across the country. Some dancers would become stars, including Rosie Perez, Damita Jo Freeman, Darnell Williams, Carmen Electra, Nick Cannon, MC Hammer, Jermaine Stewart, Fred "Rerun" Berry, Laurieann Gibson, Pebbles and of course Jody Watley and Jeffrey Daniel, who would become part of the R+B group, Shalamar. Thank you. and thanks to Mr. Cornelius (R.I.P.) for bringing them to us.
