The 3rd Annual ‘Taste of Soul’ mega street block party is set to take place on Crenshaw Boulevard Saturday, October 18th from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. This year’s event will be hosted by R&B superstar Brian McKnight, who currently serves as co-host of the popular morning show with Pat Prescott on 94.7FM The Wave.
The inaugural ‘Taste of Soul’ was co-hosted by radio giant Tom Joyner and super-star talk show host Michael Baisden in 2006. Baisden returned as host last year to the tune of some 75,000 spectators as ‘Taste of Soul’ more than doubled its numbers from the previous year of 35,000.
An estimated 1,000 vendors are expected to participate in the 3rd annual ‘Taste of Soul’ and an all-star line-up of R&B and gospel performers will be unveiled in the coming weeks. ‘Taste of Soul’ is being sponsored by The Los Angeles Sentinel, 94.7FM The Wave and Radio Free KJLH, in association with Mothers In Action.
See ya there!
