Anthony Anderson to Host First-ever Virtual Inaugural Gospel Celebration


For the first time ever, people are getting a front-row seat at the Virtual 2021 Inaugural Gospel Celebration on Wednesday, January 20th with Emmy/Golden Globe-nominated host Anthony Anderson, and honored guests President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris.

“It is an honor and a privilege to produce such a momentous event marking a season of much-needed unity in America,” says OCTET Productions President/CEO and event Executive Producer Chuck West.

The event will also give an exclusive look to a new administration and is aimed to raise funds for the National Baptist Convention’s “I’m In” initiative, with the goal to enable better healthcare access for underserved communities.

The COVID-compliant virtual celebration is co-executive produced by Terk Entertainment Group and OCTET Productions.

“We’re thrilled to be a part of this milestone moment of peacemaking in our nation,” says Terk Entertainment Group President/CEO Tarek “Terk” Stevens. He continues “We look forward to putting together an inspirational production showcasing some of today’s most talented artists and honoring our newly-elected administration as the work of unity and healing begins.” 

The event will be two-hours with musical performances by Gospel artists such as Fred Hammond, Marvin Sapp, Tasha Cobb, Koryn Hawthorne, Bryan Popin, and much more. The virtual event will also have appearances from top Hollywood acts such as Taraji P. Henson, Morris Chestnut, and Lamman Rucker.

“Now it is time to turn the page, to unite, to heal, I will work to be a president who seeks not to divide but unify. I won’t see red states and blue states, I will always see the United States,” President-Elect Biden said in a post-election speech.

A portion of all ticket sales will benefit the National Baptist Convention, led by national President Dr. Jerry Young and Reverend Charles McNeill of the National Capital Baptist Convention for their “I’m In” initiative.
