Four-time Grammy winner Yolanda Adams will perform at the event. The gospel legend is a proud native of Houston, Texas, where she began her singing career as a teenager before becoming a world-renowned singer, record producer, actress and more. She sang a stirring rendition of "America the Beautiful" at Super Bowl LIV and has performed at the invitation of five presidents, including Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.

This is Bloomberg's fifth campaign trip to Texas, a Super Tuesday primary state. Mike campaigned in San Antonio, San Marcos, Austin, Waco, and Dallas during his Get it Done Bus Tour.
