LAS VEGAS — She has soul. Wondaland honco and Kansas City native Janelle Monáe was among the dozens of celebs to attend the 2015 Soul Train Music Awards in Las Vegas on Friday (Nov. 6). The 29-year-old “Yoga” singer posed for pics with Tyrese and others after hitting the red carpet with fellow Wondaland artist Jidenna. Veteran songstress Erykah Badu hosted the event and received rave reviews for treating the audience to a nice admixture of soul and comedy. Bruno Mars was arguably the night’s biggest winner. The 30-year-old vocalist took home the award for ‘Song of the Year’ for his hit single “Uptown Funk.”
