SiR and D Smoke brought their A-game to The Soul Train Awards last night. SiR performed two songs, "Hair Down" and "John Redcorn," both seamlessly and full of feeling for the star-studded crowd. "Hair Down" was performed with SiR standing centerstage flanked with choreographed dancers behind him dressed like flight attendants. The TDE singer sang the lyrics "baby I'm just tryin' to let my hair down" earnestly as the flight crew dances to the music with old school moves. Meanwhile "John Redcorn" was delivered with D Smoke on the piano and SiR standing alone at the mic with a spotlight on him. Rhythm + Flow winner D Smoke gives a brief intro to "John Redcorn" before SiR starts exhibiting the type of vocals you hope to hear at The Soul Train Awards.
