Soul Train – A Rosie Perez Tribute

esq-rosie-lg-6347712

Our video tribute today goes to Oscar and Emmy nominee, Rosie Perez. The talented actress, choreographer, talk show host and activist has been honored for her many works. But did you know, she got her start on the long-running TV music show ‘Soul Train’?

Originally from Brooklyn, Rosie moved to Los Angeles to attend college. During her breaks, she would dance at the clubs. She was discovered by a producer of Soul Train and offered the chance to dance on a regular basis. She wound up dropping out of college and the rest is history.

Here’s a video I created, courtesy of Don Cornelius Productions and Tribune Entertainment. The music is by sax great Najee and it’s called, “Champs Élysées” from his CD, ‘The Morning After’. Unfortunately, I don’t own the copyrights to either the video or music, so I’m not sure how long the video will stay on YouTube.

Enjoy it while you can watch!
