Singer-songwriter Al B. Sure made his first public appearance at the 2018 Soul Train Music Awards, presented by BET, held at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, following the death of his son's mother, Kim Porter.

As you know, the model/mother-of-four was found dead in her Toluca Lake home on November 15th. Two days after her passing, her former lover Al B. Sure stepped out on the carpet, likely to keep his mind off of losing someone he held close to his heart.

It's becoming tradition for Erykah Badu to shut down the Soul Train Music Awards carpet. Last year, she rolled up on the scene to host for her third consecutive year in an extravagent ensemble. And this year is no different.
