McDonald’s Inspiration Celebration Gospel Tour (ICGT) is coming to Philadelphia for a free night of inspiration. Some of gospel music’s biggest acts have partnered with McDonald’s® to give back to communities across the nation through the 14-city concert series. Hosting the tour is Stellar-nominated artist and radio personality Lonnie Hunter. Joining him on stage will be music director and songwriter Donald Lawrence, vocal powerhouse Yolanda Adams, evangelist and the “Rose of Gospel” Dorinda Clark-Cole, the incomparable choral-master Ricky Dillard, urban inspirational artist DeWayne Woods, Stellar Award nominee and BET’s Sunday Best season six winner Tasha Page-Lockhart and Christian comedienne Small Fire. The concert will be held on Friday, July 10 at the Dell Music Center. Doors open at 6:00PM and the soul-stirring singing starts at 7:00PM.
“We are proud to give back to the local community, and RMHC, through this free gospel concert where we have the opportunity to celebrate the rich musical heritage of the African-American community. We look forward to delivering an inspirational evening of music to our local community. The McDonald’s Inspiration Celebration Gospel Tour is just one of the ways we display our commitment to being deeply rooted in the community 365 days a year,” said Ken Youngblood, McDonald’s Owner/Operator and President of the Philadelphia Black McDonald’s Owner/Operator Association.
