Karyn White Blasts BET For Not Letting Her Perform At Soul Train Awards
This past weekend’s Soul Train Awards was a joy to watch for millions of fans of Black music but one “Superwoman” wasn’t too happy after BET decided against inviting her to the big show.
Singer Karyn White recently blasted the network for not allowing her to sing her own song at the Soul Train Awards during Babyface’s tribute. The singer acknowledges Fantasia did a wonderful job but she should have been allowed to be on stage as well according to a new Facebook video…
“I’ve been getting bombarded with questions from family, fans, friends. I’ve been getting tweets, texts. Just people calling me: ‘Karen, why weren’t you on the show?’ ‘Are you okay?’ ‘Is everything alright?’ ‘Why weren’t you there?’ ‘Everyone else was there; we wanted to see you.’ Good question. I. Don’t. Know. I never got a call from ‘Face or BET, or Centric or Soul Train music award affiliates–nobody. So I don’t know.”
“I thought Fantasia did an amazing job. She’s a bad girl. She put it down. It has nothing to do with Fantasia. It’s really just respect. The fact that Kenny wrote the song, and LA, and Daryl Simmons, but Karyn White made it a hit. And I believe my fans deserve to see me sing the song.”
Fans of the singer bombarded her with questions about her whereabouts during the stellar performance:
Do you think Karyn should have been allowed to perform her hit song “Superwoman” on the Soul Train Awards??
