Sinqua Walls plays the legendary Don Cornelius in BET’s American Soul that airs on Tuesday nights.

Cornelius hosted the legendary Soul Train and Walls prepared for the part for a while studying his ‘ life and talking to his family. The show is both factual and entertaining. Walls says that the “parts about Don are 75% factual.”

To this day Walls is “still doing research” to prepare for a “second season.”

He really enjoys being a part of American Soul and feels a “responsibility” to be “authentic” and to “honor” Cornelius’ legacy and family.

Tom who personally knew Cornelius let Walls know that he’s doing a great job and “nailing it.”
