Auditions are complete, the stage is set and McDonald’s Gospelfest 2016 is officially on its way back to Newark! The premiere talent competition that features emerging soloists, choirs, dancers, comedians, rappers and poets makes its eighth annual appearance at the Prudential Center on Saturday, May 8. If you have yet to attend this Mother’s Day weekend tradition, it is a truly spectacular experience to see performers of all ages, cultures and faiths share the stage with the top gospel acts in the world. This year’s McDonald’s Gospelfest is starring Bishop Hezekiah Walker, Faith Evans, The Five Blind Boys of Alabama, Cissy Houston, the Mississippi Mass Choir and back by popular demand, The Clark Sisters.
