According to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, soul is "music that arose out of the black experience in America through the transmutation of gospel and rhythm & blues that stressed by handclaps and extemporaneous body moves. Other characteristics are a call and response between the lead vocalist and the chorus and an especially tense vocal sound. Soul music reflected the African-American identity and it stressed the importance of an African-American culture. The new-found African-American consciousness led to new styles of music, which boasted pride in being black [1]. Join me when we chat with Tyrone DuBose, R &B Historian, Voiceover Imaging, Contributor for TV one's "UNSUNG"​, Sheryl Underwood Radio, Host of "Timeless Traxx".
