MARY J. BLIGE and Jamie Foxx clinched the big prizes at yesterday's (10MAR07) Soul Train Music Awards, both taking home Best Album awards. Foxx was lauded for UNPREDICTABLE, while The Breakthrough earned Blige Best Female Album. It was an emotional night at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, California, for former TV talent show contestant JENNIFER HUDSON too - she was overwhelmed to receive the Sammy Davis Jr. Award for Entertainer of the Year. The DREAMGIRLS star, who also performed at the ceremony, said, "I just can't believe I got the Sammy Davis Jr. award. I'm standing on the same stage where I made the top 32 of American Idol." Other big winners included John Legend, who won Best Male Single for SAVE ROOM, and duo Gnarls Barkley, who picked up the same accolade in the group category for international smash hit CRAZY. SHAWN 'JAY-Z' CARTER won the Michael Jackson award for Best Soul Or Rap Video for SHOW ME WHAT YOU GOT and THE ISLEY BROTHERS FEATURING RONALD ISLEY won Best Album for a group, band or duo for BABY MAKIN' MUSIC. Meanwhile, KENNETH 'Babyface' EDMONDS was presented the Stevie Wonder Award for Outstanding Career Achievement in Song Writing. The Soul Train Music Awards celebrate artists in R+B, hip-hop and gospel music.
