SOUL TRAIN MUSIC AWARDS CANCELLED

Soul Train Awards
Soul Train Awards

The announcement that the Soul Train Music Awards, which celebrated the best of black music and entertainment in the US, will not happen this year.

Why the awards event, which has been celebrating black music for over two decades, will not take place in 2008 isn't entirely clear, though it had suffered in recent years when the US TV show it span off from - Soul Train - essentially stopped airing.

Many of the big stars up for awards - including Beyonce Knowles, Mary J Blige, John Legend and Gnarls Barkley - also failed to attend the Soul Train ceremony last year.
