John-Lewis-wObama-award (1)

This has already been a memorable, emotional 2015 for legendary Congressman John Lewis (D-Ga.).

Fresh off of commemorating the 50th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday” at the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Ala. along with about 100,000 people — where he was bestowed a special award from President Obama — Lewis is about to celebrate his 75th birthday during a star-studded gala in his honor.

Among the celebrities and dignitaries who will honor the bigger-than-life civil rights hero will be Andrew Young, Ted Turner, The Indigo Girls, Jennifer Holiday, Terri J. Vaughn, The Morehouse College Glee Club, Dionne Warwick, Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra, Demetria McKinney, Jennifer Holliday, Regina Belle, Tichina Arnold and Gary Jeter,

The celebration will take place at the Tabernacle on Saturday, March 28, 2015
