Video Soul has officially been rebooted!
From 1981 through the mid-90s, R&B and soul artists had a platform dedicated to them and their work. That platform was Video Soul, a two-hour program that ran on BET and was hosted by Donnie Simpson and Sherry Carter.
In a surprise announcement from Simpson himself he tweeted, “I’ve been waiting to say this for 25 years now…’Video Soul’ Is Back!!! I can’t tell you how many people over the years have suggested that I bring it back. I told them I would & today it’s official. Video Soul is live and free on #Tubi right now.”
Now titled Donnie Simpson’s Video Soul, the new format includes in-depth interviews with artists such as Teddy Riley, Jazzy Pha, K-Ci Hailey of Jodeci, Keith Sweat, Tweet, The Fugees’ Pras Michal, Young Joc, Lecrae, Kool Moe Dee, and many more.
The first six episodes of Donnie’s Video Soul are currently streaming for free on Tubi.
