The Legendary Don Cornelius and creator of “Soul Train” was found dead this morning.
Law enforcement sources said police arrived at Cornelius’ home around 4 a.m. He apparently died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the case was ongoing.
The sources said there was no sign of foul play, but the Los Angeles Police Department was investigating.
“Soul Train” was the longest-running first-run nationally syndicated show in television history, bringing African American music and style to the world for 35 years.
“Soul Train” helped to launch The Soul Train Music Awards. It’s success led to other popular Soul Train spin-off specials like The Soul Train Lady Of Soul Annual Awards Special and The Soul Train Christmas Starfest. Don made his mark on Black History
Our condolences to the family of the late great Don Cornelius
