There's a rumor going around that VH1 Soul is on the brink of extinction. The blogs are abuzz with it- claiming that a merger that's been long in the works between Centric (BET/MTV) and VH1 is the reason behind the threat.

One of VH1 Soul's most beloved programs is SoulStage that has showcased live performances from Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Chrisette Michele, Wyclef Jean, and Raphael Saadiq have all been performers on the program. My other favorite VH1 Soul show? Soulphrodisiac where it's all love soul songs, all the time. The best love songs of all music video time are shown here. Live tape of classic soul shows are shown here. Don't have a clue what I'm talking about? Real music videos? What do you mean? Well, there's Soul School to show you the way with old school soul and R&B videos.



Without VH1 Soul, where will soul-lovers go to see videos and live shows for free? Well, we soul-lovers are a rare breed and soul music doesn't sell as well as the mainstream music on the radio, unfortunately. This means that television doesn't air any shows centered on soul music, in fact VH1 Soul is it.

Good news! There's a petition going around Save VH1 Soul and they only need 500 signatures. They're about 43 away from their goal. You can also follow them at @SaveVH1Soul on Twitter for updates and informtion.

I don't get this channel, so I never got to watch the goodness that you describe, but your review alone is enough to get me to sign the petition (which, by the way, I'm having some technical difficulties with at the moment).  Great review, love!  Let's save the music!

I fixed the link, sorry about that! Thanks for signing it, love! Oh, I'm not sure if you're the one that changed the definition but, VH1 Soul doesn't play Motown and rarely funk, if at all. It really focuses mostly on the 90s. So, I changed it back to how I had it!
