DON CORNELIUS: "SOUL TRAIN" FANS PAY TRIBUTE IN TIMES SQUARE
NEW YORK (AP) -- It was a tribute to "Soul Train" founder and host Don Cornelius that probably would have thrilled him no end -- had be been alive to see it. This one was from the people who were touched by his show. About 100 dancers showed up at New York's Time Square on Saturday to take part in a huge Soul Train line -- just like the ones you used to see on the show. This time, the line was organized through a "flash mob." But the result was just the same -- as one dance pair after another showed off their favorite moves. Other fans used their voices -- instead of their legs -- to pay tribute to Cornelius. Ramona Hamm brought her 9-year-old daughter to the event. She said Cornelius: "brought soul to the whole world."
