McDonald’s 11th annual Inspiration Celebration Gospel Tour is set to stop through Los Angeles for a free night of inspiring music, comedic relief and giving. Some of gospel music’s most celebrated artists have teamed up with McDonald’s to deliver messages of hope and joy during this 15-city concert series.

Morton, gospel crooner Brian Courtney Wilson, songbird Anita Wilson, singing sensation  Jekalyn Carr, as well as renowned quartet voice Paul Porter. Christian comedienne Small Fire will again bring the laughter while radio personality and gospel artist Lonnie Hunter resumes hosting duties.

The Los Angeles stop of the tour will once again be at the Taste of Soul festival, taking place at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd and Crenshaw Blvd. on Saturday, October 21st, with the first act hitting the stage at 10:00AM.

Dr Pepper® also returns as a tour sponsor, showing its appreciation and commitment to the African-American community.
