Presented by McDonald's, the Black Arts and Cultural Festival is an updated take on a classic celebration of the traditions and cultural contributions of the black community through music, art, dance, and more. In addition to an exciting lineup of talent on the main stage, the festival will feature a kids zone with family-friendly activities everyone can enjoy.

With her multi-platinum selling genre bending catalog that spans decades into the now over 10 albums: disco, soul, funk, pop, contemporary R&B, hip/hop, jazz, adult contemporary and electronica; the Jody Watley concert experience is vast, rich and always a soulful party. Since her days as the original female lead vocalist of the R&B trio Shalamar, Watley emerged as always ahead of the pop culture curve and has been at the forefront of some of the most groundbreaking trends and movements in modern pop culture, serving as the style template for today’s women in contemporary music.
