The Inspiration Celebration Gospel Tour is part of McDonald's 365Black platform, which celebrates the pride, heritage and achievements of African-Americans. The concert series also emphasizes the importance of giving back to the community. During each show, attendees will have the opportunity to learn how they can support Ronald McDonald House Charities.

There are many of you that are very familiar with the music of all of that artists that are involved with this concert. Unfortunately, most people that will attend the concert won't be able to say that. The good thing is that many people will be exposed to artists that they are not familiar with. This is great for artists like Canton Jones and 21:30 who make really good music, but some people may not be familiar with their music, because it doesn't get sung in many churches around the country. Many people will quickly find out that they have been missing out on some quality music.
