In the wake of Corneliusâ€™ passing, Gibbs is focused on ensuring that the legacy of Soul Train is expanded through a series of brand extensions. Thus far one of the most successful projects has been the creation of a digital identity resulting in a little over end of 27 million YouTube views and 25,000+ Facebook fans. According to Gibbs the online presence of SoulTrain.com has been so popular that the official site crashed three times on the day that news of Corneliusâ€™ passing spread. With a newly popular awards show and solid digital presence, Gibbs is now gearing up for the launch of the 2013 Soul Train Cruise, and has plans for a movie, musical and a return to television for the brand. As Gibbs states the vision of Cornelius remains a vital force with endless possibilities to continue influencing American culture. â€œI think itâ€™s a testament to what Donâ€™s vision was and the fact that the platform that he built is so enduring,â€ he says.
