“Gospel Music has always been the heart and soul of the Black community. Our sound… our rhythms, our original hymns have sustained the community for generations,” said GRAMMY Award Winner and Tour Artist Smokie Norful. “It is a blessing to be back performing live on the Inspiration Celebration Gospel Tour and to be in devotion with some of the greatest artists in the industry.”

 

Christian Comedy is being added to the tour for the first time, social media personality and comedian Karlton Humes (IG: @NotKarltonBanks) bringing his unique brand of entertainment to the tour. Additionally, in the spirit of the homecoming tradition, select shows will feature live performances by HBCU marching bands and gospel choirs.
