Wow! I always wondered what happened to Donnie Simpson after he left BET (I live in NC). It would be something if he went back to BET but judging from what I see on BET these days, he wouldn't fit in with their desired demographic.

He is majorly respected... He's had Stevie Wonder (stevie said "I texted you this morning Donnie did you get it!"), Blair Underwood, Smokey Robinson, John Legend, Chuck Brown, DC Police Chief Cathy Lanier, Frankie Beverly, Steve Harvey, Russ Parr, Yolanda Adams...etc... call or visit on the show.

That is great. I know Donnie gave alot of artists their early exposure who went on to
become major stars. Whitney, Brandy, etc.


I wish Video Soul came out as a boxset dvd. I would buy it in a second.

I always wondered where he was. Video Soul was a staple growing up in Detroit. I live in NYC now so he's off the radar. I've expected to see him on some new nationwide music endeavor. I wish him well.
