CENTRIC today announced a lineup of hit-making performers and presenters for SOUL TRAIN AWARDS 2014. Leading the charge for his first SOUL TRAIN AWARDS performance is the multi-talented GRAMMY Award winner, Chris Brown, who leads the show with seven nominations. In addition, the reunion we've all been waiting for is going down as the platinum selling group Jodeci
is scheduled to sing a medley of hits before ending with a sneak peek of their new single, "Nobody Wins." Chart-topping international fan favorites Aloe Blacc
and Nico & Vinz
will keep the audience entertained with upbeat performances of their catchy sing-a-long hits. Jeremih, Lisa Stansfield, Kem and Liv Warfield round out the list of rhythm and soul singers set to captivate viewers during this year's show. Presenters Trey Songz, Boris
Kodjoe, Laila Ali and Wolf Blitzer will join host Wendy Williams on stage at the Orleans Arena
in Las Vegas
on November 7, 2014. The show airs on CENTRIC and BET Networks on November 30, 2014 at 8PM ET/PT.
"This slate of performances is another example that SOUL TRAIN AWARDS 2014 is the only place where soul music lovers can find the diverse combination of current chart-topping performers and reunions from their favorite hit-making groups," said Paxton Baker, General Manager and Executive Vice President, CENTRIC. "We are pulling out all the stops this year and are thrilled to have Chris Brown
lead the big surprises we have in store."
