In an event that highlighted the spirit of American service members, the summer sky of Universal Studios Hollywood was lit not just by celebratory fireworks, but also by the laughter and inspiration brought by Preacher Lawson. The event, dubbed “Salute to Summer,” was a grand spectacle aimed at celebrating the contributions of the U.S. Army while encouraging the public to unleash their full potential with the message, “Be All You Can Be.”


Preacher Lawson Performs at Universal Studios Hollywood

When Lawson stepped on the America’s Got Talent stage back in 2017, little did he know that his life was about to take a radical turn. As he humorously quipped during his recent performance at Universal Studios in Hollywood.

“You never know if your world might change when you bet on your talents and put yourself out there.” Lawson said.

Raised as a military baby, with his siblings born on base, Lawson’s humble beginnings gave him a strong work ethic and a unique perspective of life—traits evident in his high-energy comedy routines. Though he almost went into the military himself, Lawson found his calling in comedy, turning his experiences, both ordinary and extraordinary, into a source of laughter and joy for millions.


His recent performance at the Salute to Summer event showcased this perfectly. His jokes about his “magical hair,” whispering in Walgreens, and childhood bully, Rodney, brought waves of laughter from the crowd. Lawson’s personal stories actively reminded everyone that we can transform life’s difficulties into something positive—something that brings laughter.

Preacher Lawson Shared His Inspirational Journey

What’s more compelling about Lawson’s journey is his constant push towards realizing his full potential. The comedian recalled his first time on stage at age 17, stating how his mother literally pushed him into the limelight. From that moment forward, he never looked back, and his career catapulted into the realm of stardom.

Lawson’s story is a testament to the power of taking chances and facing fears head-on. He encourages anyone teetering on the edge of pursuing their dreams to leap forward, reminding them never do tomorrow what you can do today.


His own story showcases limitless possibilities when one embraces their potential. Whether it’s through his laughter-inducing jokes or his inspiring life journey, Lawson continues to entertain and inspire.
