Oprah puts together a powerhouse line-up to inspire America.
After years of using her talk show and recently-launched cable network to provide inspiration and guidance to fans, Oprah Winfrey will come out from behind the camera.
Winfrey is marshaling her entire portfolio of media outlets – her magazine, her cable network and her Harpo production company – and jointing with William Morris Endeavor Entertainment to create an eight-city tour that will urge attendees to rise to their greatest potential. Procter & Gamble”s Olay and Toyota will sponsor the events, to be billed as “Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend.”
Each tour stop will take part over a weekend. On Friday nights, Winfrey is expected to relate her own story and offer insights. On Saturdays, Winfrey will lead a day-long gathering of thousands with handpicked thought leaders and pop culture icons including Iyanla Vanzant, star of OWN series “Iyanla: Fix My Life”; “Eat Pray Love” author Elizabeth Gilbert; and influential author and pastor Rob Bell. In some cities, mind and body guru Deepak Chopra will take the stage.
