The longest-running brand owned gospel tour might be coming to your town with the 12th year of McDonald’s Inspiration Celebration Gospel Tour.

The 12 stop multi-city FREE tour will feature some of the gospel genre legends including Ricky Dillard, JJ Hairston, LeAndria Johnson and Todd Dulaney, hip hop gospel artist Canton Jones, and contemporary musician and preacher Deitrick Haddon.

“It’s a privilege to be apart of the tour I’ve watched and admired over the years. McDonald’s is doing

something incredible by giving back to the community through a dynamic gospel tour. Getting behind this was

a must,” said JJ Hairston, who will be taking the tour’s stage for the first time.

In each city, the tour will take up a love offering to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities which provide housing for families who have a sick child in the hospital. In five years, the offering has raised nearly $800,00 in aid to families.

In addition, McDonald’s will award an HBCU student a  $10,000 Thurgood Marshall College Fund Scholarship at a select stop on the tour.
