Evangelist Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham, will appear tonight in Chattanooga's Coolidge Park at 7:30 p.m. as part of his Decision America tour.

The free event is designed to solve racial, political and cultural divisions across the country. 

"Last year I went to all 50 state capitals to encourage Christians to join me in prayer for our communities. But our country is still in trouble and needs prayer more than ever," said Graham.

Graham is also stopping in Clarksville, Jackson and Memphis as part of his tour across the Volunteer State. 

The Chattanooga event will also feature music from The Afters. 

Graham tweeted "Tennessee, here I come," as he prepared to enter the state.
