Oprah Winfrey to tape ‘Oprah’s Lifeclass’ episode in Dallas
Oprah Winfrey will be in Dallas next month to record an episode of her series Oprah’s Lifeclass before a live audience.

Winfrey’s taping at 9:30 a.m. Aug. 29 will kick off the three-day MegaFest Christian festival, being organized by Dallas’ Bishop T.D. Jakes. Jakes will join Winfrey during the taping, according to a press release from MegaFest.

Tickets for the taping in American Airlines Center will be available starting at noon Friday at tdjakes.org/oprahslifeclass.


Oprah’s Lifeclass is broadcast on Winfrey’s OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. Each episode features one expert and encourages “student” interaction on-air, online and through social media to help Winfrey “share principles and tools that can help people live more meaningful and fulfilling lives,” according to a press release from OWN. The Dallas-based episode will be the continuation a two-hour special on “fatherless sons and daddyless daughters” that first aired in May. Another episode in the series will air Friday.

Jakes, leader of Dallas megachurch The Potter’s House, appeared on Lifeclass before to discuss purposeful living and was also a guest on Winfrey’s show Oprah’s Next Chapter. The Potter’s House has 30,000 members, and a MegaFest spokesperson said they estimate about 50,000 attendees, making it the city’s largest convention of the year.

Previous MegaFests have taken place in Atlanta and South Africa. This is its first year in Dallas. Events, scheduled at American Airlines Center and the Dallas Convention Center, include four of Jakes Ministries’ smaller conferences aimed at men, women, teens and children. Concerts, comedy acts and a streetball championship game will round out the weekend’s events.

Winfrey is the latest addition to the festival’s roster of celebrity guests. Televangelist Joel Osteen, another regular Winfrey guest, and his wife, Victoria, will headline the convention. Cedric the Entertainer will co-host a “Just Churchin’ Comedy Show.”
