No stranger to the Soul Train stage, the late King of Pop will be honored posthumously at the forthcoming 2009 Soul Train Awards. Michael Jackson’s contributions to music will be recognized with a special “Entertainer of the Year” award during the show, scheduled for November 3rd in Atlanta.
Michael Jackson and many of the Jackson family have made appearances on Soul Train programming at the start of their careers. The memorable 1972 Jackson 5 performance of “I Want You Back” is still remembered because of the incredible showmanship.
Check out the 2009 Soul Train Awards on Sunday, November 29th at 9pm on Centric.
