“I’m really excited to have the opportunity to kick off Bishop Jakes’ inspirational weekend with some soulful fun as co-host (with Niecy Nash) of the Just Churchin’ Comedy Show at his MegaFest experience in Dallas this summer. It’s great bringing the fun and being part of a lineup of such forward-moving, positive events that benefit and enhance the lives of so many families in the community,” said Cedric the Entertainer.
The MegaFest Woman of Purpose Concert, in conjunction with Autism Speaks, will highlight women who are making a difference in their communities by advocating for awareness and resources to assist children and families affected by this developmental disorder. Hosted on Saturday, August 31 at 8 p.m. from American Airlines Center, tickets go on sale June 28.
