I’m still in shock after hearing my husband (in my head) is coming to the Queen City! Two-time Academy Award winner Denzel Washingon will be in Charlotte this spring to serve as the keynote speaker at
T.D. Jakes International Leadership Summit.

Yassss, hunni! Washington will bring his talents and expertise focusing on Hollywood, faith and handling the spotlight. And who else would be better for the job? I mean Washington is only one of the greatest actors in his generation. He’s also a producer and director and the recipient of some of the most prestigious awards including the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award.

The summit itself is Pastor T.D. Jakes brainchild designed to give a leadership experience to men and women in the business, faith and entertainment industry.

Washington isn’t the only big name on the ticket. Other speakers include:

  • Producer, Director Actor Tyler Perry
  • Elevation Church Pastor Steven Furtick
  • CEO of The Henderson Management Group, Keion Henderson
  • New Life Covenant Chruch Southeast, John F. Hannah

The International Leadership Summit is April 30 – May 2, 2020 at the Charlotte Convention Center. Get more information at
