Wendy Williams will host the 2014 Soul Train Awards, the talk show host announced to her audience on Monday.
Singer Dionne Warwick and Tony Cornelius, the son of “Soul Train” creator Don Cornelius, stopped by the “Wendy Williams Show” to help deliver the news.
“My father always thought highly of you. He always thought you were aggressive, and you could make it happen,” Cornelius said during the segment (above). “And now you’ve become this media personality.”
The Soul Train Awards will be held at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas on Nov. 7, but won’t air on CENTRIC and BET until Nov. 30.
