DOWNTOWN MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Mayor A C Wharton announced the Bluff City will be the home of the "Soul of Memphis Legacy Awards, which will air March 18, 2014.

The awards, associated with the BET channel, will be hosted by Memphis native and actress Elise Neal and actor Malcolm Jamal Warner, notably from "The Cosby Show."

Executives said the show will honor musical legends from the past and award today's contemporary artists.

"For me to have the opportunity now as a seasoned executive award show producer to come back and produce something here, I jumped at the prospect," said Paxton Baker, Executive VP of Centric TV. "To my knowledge for what will be a major awards show this will be the only city that's actually mentioned in the name, so the 'Soul of Memphis Legacy Awards.'"

Paxton said they also say they plan to hire local production staff for the show when it films in February.
