Forget the French fries and Big Macs for now. Free Gospel music is Mickey D's order of the day ths summer.
Free music is good. Free, good music is better. Free, good, live music, in the summer, is the best.
McDonald's Inspiration Celebration Gospel Tour is back and better than ever with some of gospel music's biggest acts.
Hosting the tour this year is one-half of sister duo Mary Mary and now solo artist Erica Campbell and comedian Jonathan Slocumb. Joining them are Anthony Brown & Group TherAPy, the renowned Mississippi Mass Choir, gospel's latest hip-hop sensation Uncle Reece, organist Moses Tyson, Jr. and the incomparable Kurt Carr & The Kurt Carr Singers.
Back for its eighth year, the free summer concert series sets out May 22 and runs through July 25 to deliver messages of hope and inspiration to communities nationwide.
"I am so thankful and honored to be chosen not only to host the tour, but to perform alongside other gospel greats," said Campbell, a gospel music veteran. "The tour will definitely be filled with uplifting music, laughter and an overall good time for everyone."
McDonald's Inspiration Celebration Gospel Tour will again focus on the importance of giving back to the community by supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), the company's Mission Partner. In recognition of the RMHC's 40 years of keeping families together and helping children heal, this year concertgoers will have the opportunity to learn about the Charity and the important role it plays in helping thousands of children and families heal and thrive better together. Attendees will also be encouraged to support their local RMHC Chapter by participating in a love offering to help neighboring families served by the Charity.
"I could not pass up the opportunity to co-host such an amazing tour that's on a mission to give back to families like yours and mine," Slocumb said. "I can't wait to bring the non-stop laughter to everyone, especially those who are going through a tough time."
