Chamillionaire will become the first rapper to serve as co-Grand Marshal of Houston’s 15th annual MLK Grande Parade, the largest celebration in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King in the nation.         

      The rapper will join local businessman Douglas M. Horn and publisher/motivational speaker Dr. Anthony Taylor as host of the parade.

       Over 300,000 people are expected to attend the event, which will also honor U.S. Congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee and Houston City Council Member, Peter Brown, for their work in various impoverished communities.       

       The day’s theme, “The Color of Unity,” will promote cultural diversity and tolerance among all races, something Dr. Martin Luther King emphasized before he was assassinated on April 4, 1968.       

       Chamillionaire’s custom car shop Fly Rydes has also been designated to provide transportation for the State and City elected officials who are attending the event.
