Tisha states within a forwarded statement that, ‘producing and hosting the Soul Train Awards for the last three years with my childhood friend [Arnold] has truly been one of the high points of my life.”
“Yet, upon hearing Tichina and I would be filming at the World Famous Apollo this year,” she added, “we literally lost our minds with excitement. It is already an extreme honor to be synonymous with Don Cornelius’s 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!”
