The free concert series celebrates gospel culture and is powered by renowned artists who push the envelope in gospel music and beyond

CHICAGO, Sept 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — McDonald’s 17th annual Inspiration Celebration ® Gospel Tour (ICGT) will once again unite Black culture through its intergenerational celebration of Black faith, joy, music and more. Launching in September during Gospel Music Heritage Month, fans across the nation will experience a message of hope and upliftment through dynamic live performances from artists who are driving change and pushing the envelope in gospel music. Hosted by Stellar award-winning recording artist & radio personality Lonnie Hunter, the highly anticipated six-city tour will bridge the gap between intergenerational gospel artists, including Anthony Brown & Group TherAPy, Bishop Hezekiah Walker, Bri Babineaux, DOE, Mike Teezy, Sir the Baptist, The Walls Group, Tim Bowman Jr., and DJ CANVA$. 

Like years past, legendary singer, songwriter, and producer Donald Lawrence will resume his role as music supervisor. Journalist and Founder of Black Star Network, Roland Martin will also lend his media network, Black Star Network and its social channels to amplify the concert series through sharing exclusive interviews with the artists. Fans can access free tickets at www.blackandpositivelygolden.com.

“This celebration of faith not only brings together the powerful harmonies of gospel music but also unites community and family, touching hearts across the nation,” said Grammy Award Winner ® Bishop Hezekiah Walker. “I am honored to be back performing live on the Inspiration Celebration Gospel Tour, alongside some of gospel’s brightest stars. But it’s not just about the music – it’s about the impact, as we celebrate faith to spread joy, compassion, and a message of hope to thousands of fans across the nation.”

As with previous years, the tour will celebrate McDonald’s continued commitment to Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®). At each concert stop, attendees will have the opportunity to donate to their local RMHC chapter to benefit families served by the organization. 

“It’s an honor that for 17 years, McDonald’s Inspiration Celebration Gospel Tour has inspired communities to lead change and push the envelope in their lives, just as this year’s artists are doing in their careers,” said Harry Smith, Indiana McDonald’s Owner/Operator and Chair of the Inspiration Celebration Gospel Tour. “In partnership with our crew members and through our ongoing support of RMHC, we are proud we are able to continue uniting communities that we serve through music to further drive impact.”
