Detroit was the place to be on Wednesday, May 10, when the eleventh annual McDonald’s Inspiration Celebration Gospel Tour kicked off. The free tour rocked Greater Grace Temple with energetic performances, laughter and inspirational messages. Donald Lawrence once again serving as the musical director, the night was truly unstoppable from beginning to end. Tye Tribbett delivered a rousing performance while Bishop Paul Morton certainly showed everyone why he’s still a force to be reckoned with.

Anita Wilson and Brian Courtney Wilson left everyone “Speechless” and saying “Yes,” respectively. Vocal powerhouse Jekalyn Carr brought down the house, and Paul Porter took the people to church. Lonnie Hunter returned as the host while funny woman Small Fire had everyone in stitches. Additionally, social influencer Karlton Humes was also in the house capturing funny videos all night.
