On Sunday, December 12 at 8 p.m. ET, McDonald’s USA delivered the gift of music to McDonald’s fans through its Inspiration Celebration® Gospel Tour Holiday Experience. You can watch the tour HERE on BET’s YouTube Channel. In partnership with BET, award-winning and emerging gospel artists including Yolanda Adams, Kurt Carr, James Fortune, Stephanie Summers, The Walls Group, and Brian Courtney Wilson, and featuring BET’s Sunday Best winner Stephanie Summers, graced the virtual stage to ring in the season with some of their chart-topping hits and holiday carols and gospel music many love. Recently, Pastor Mike Jr. of Birmingham, AL visited the Ronald McDonald house to present a monetary donation and surprise families with Christmas gifts.
Show performers came together to premiere “Christmas Spirit,” a feel-good song written and produced by chart-topping gospel artist, Sir the Baptist. Written exclusively for this Holiday Experience, the tune merges traditional gospel music with contemporary hip-hop sounds.
This special holiday concert continues the long-standing Inspiration Celebration® Gospel Tour tradition of supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC®) and its mission to improve the health and well-being of children and their families. Because ‘tis the season, virtual concert-goers can donate to RHMC live at RMHC.org/ICGT2021. Since 2012, The McDonald’s Inspiration Celebration® Gospel Tour has raised more than $1M to help families with ill or injured children stay close when they need it most.
“The holidays are such a special time. But as much as it’s a time for celebration, it’s a time to reflect and give back to others around us,” said Yolanda Adams, Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter. “I am proud to join this talented group of artists to usher in the holiday spirit for gospel fans nationwide while supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities families.”
