Today in Manhattan’s Times Square pedestrians became dancers as a “flash mob” convened to honor Don Cornelius, the host of the popular TV show “Soul Train.” Cornelius passed away earlier this week in Los Angeles of an apparent suicide.

Participants formed a “dance-line” as dancers would each week on the show and many are currently uploading photos and video clips to the event’s Facebook page if you’d like to see more.

And as always, we here at Raw Story wish you peace, love, and soul.
