  • Mike Teezy 
  • DOE 
  • DJ CANVA$ 
  • Tim Bowman, Jr. 
  • Bri Babineaux 
  • The Walls Group

Award-winning recording artist & radio personality Lonnie Hunter will host the event. Legendary singer, songwriter, and producer Donald Lawrence is the music supervisor. Journalist and Founder of Black Star Network, Roland Martin will also lend his media network, Black Star Network and its social channels to amplify the concert series through sharing exclusive interviews with the artists. 

As with previous years, the tour will celebrate McDonald’s continued commitment to Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC).
