2015 Inspiration Celebration® Gospel Tour

ICGT Kicks Off Ninth Tour

The Inspiration Celebration Gospel Tour (ICGT) continues to deliver strong evidence that consumers view McDonald’s as being connected to the African-American community. This is the ninth annual ICGT and it will continue to offer not only a free concert, but also a great family experience with entertainment that is positive, uplifting and inspirational.

Over the last nine years, the ICGT has become a nationally recognized music tour in the US with growing awareness and interest year-over-year from both consumers and the top Gospel talent in the country. The tour also works to provide awareness and financial support for McDonald’s charity of choice, Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). Dr Pepper® returns as a tour sponsor, showing its appreciation and commitment to the African-American community.

ICGT 2015 promises to be even more impactful and inspirational than 2014 through the expansion of cities as well as a diverse and stellar talent line-up. The tour includes 11 national markets, and four extension markets, and it features every genre within the Gospel music industry: contemporary, traditional, inspirational, instrumental, hip-hop, and comedy. Hosted by Lonnie Hunter, the tour features the following renowned Gospel artists: Yolanda Adams, Dorinda Clark-Cole, Donald Lawrence, DeWayne Woods, Tasha Page-Lockhart, and Ricky Dillard. Acclaimed comedian, Small Fire will provide entertainment for the entire family and community to enjoy.
