Former ‘Martin’ stars Tisha Campbell and Tichina Arnold to host Soul Train Music Awards’ for fourth straight year

Tisha Campbell and Tichina Arnold are having so much fun hosting the Soul Train Music Awards, they’re coming back for the fourth straight year.

“Producing and hosting the Soul Train Awards for the last three years with my childhood friend has truly been one of the high points of my life,” Tisha said in a statement. “Yet, upon hearing Tichina and I would be filming at the World Famous Apollo this year, we literally lost our minds with excitement. It is already an extreme honor to be synonymous with Don Cornelius’ legacy, and now, to also walk in the footsteps of the multitude of African-American talent that graced the Apollo stage is mind-blowing to both of us!”

The lifelong friends, who starred in Martin from 1992-97, will return for the 33rd annual Soul Train Music Awards, to be held for the first time at the legendary Apollo Theater in New York City.

“Returning to my hometown where it all began for us as young girls and hosting the iconic Soul Train Awards at the Apollo is a truly a childhood dream come true,” Tichina commented. “I’m honored to stand beside Tisha and take our place in history hosting and creatively producing such an iconic show.”

This year’s show celebrates the 50th anniversary of the annual Soul Train series Cornelius launched in 1971. Nominations will be announced in the coming weeks.

The 2021 Soul Train Music Awards will premiere Sunday, November 28, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on BET and BET Her.
