Magician Kenrick “ICE” McDonald Makes History

Internationally known Master Magician “ICE” McDonald will make history on July 3 when he is inaugurated as the first Black president of The Society of American Magicians (S.A.M.), the world’s oldest and most prestigious magic organization.

An award-winning magician, Kenrick “ICE” McDonald has done many stellar performances with grand illusions including doves disappearing and appearance out of thin air.

“It is an honor to be elected as National President and a privilege to take this step into history. My passion for and the belief in the Magical Arts is so strong, that if you were to cut me, I would bleed magic; it’s in my DNA. But the belief in myself to reach this monumental position is greater. I will serve as President with integrity and hard work, which are two pillars of my foundation,” the magician said in a statement.

Founded in 1902, S.A.M. has promoted the ideals shared by magicians like Houdini and more than 47,000 others worldwide who have held membership in the society.

The inauguration will take place at the Grand Renaissance Grand St. Louis Hotel in St Louis.
