Starting May 10, McDonald’s returns with its FREE 11th annual Inspiration Celebration of Gospel Tour – the longest running brand owned tour.

Lonnie Hunter was tapped to host the gospel tour, which is set to feature Tye Tribbett, Bishop Paul S. Morton, Donald Lawrence, Brian Courtney Wilson, Anita Wilson, Jekalyn Carr and Paul Porter. Comedian Small Fire will also be on tour to open up the show and Hezekiah Walker is expected to drop in on a few select cities.

“To hear about this tour over the years and to now be a part of it is truly amazing. I’m so honored,” Tye Tribbett said. “Not only will I be joining so many of my favorite gospel peers, but together we’ll get a chance to uplift attendees across the nation while supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities. I’m ready for a good time filled with love and inspiration!”

Since 2012, the tour has raised over half a million dollars for local Ronald McDonald Houses and hopes to raise the bar this year in their efforts to support our local communities.

“For over a decade, the brand has had the opportunity to touch so many communities through inspirational music and laughter,” McDonald’s USA Marketing Director Angie Blissett said. “Not only is there an amazing lineup of performers but the tour will continue to raise donations for RMHC benefiting families in need.”
