Fred Hammond Releases New Disc, Begins Festival of Praise Tour
Gospel Superstar Fred Hammond’s new disc Worship Journal Live was released just in time for the kick off of the 2016 edition of his Festival of Praise Tour. Worship Journal Live is Hammond’s first live disc recording in 17 years and is the follow up to his 2014 CD I Will Trust.
“This album is very autobiographical but I think my listeners will find a lot of the themes to be universal,” said Hammond. “We all struggle. We all worry. We all question our paths. We all need inspiration. Belief in our Lord and Savior and his ability to deliver us through all of that – that’s what I wish for my listeners to always carry with them.”
The third year of the ever popular Festival of Praise Tour began on October 1, 2016 in Seattle, WA, as Hammond joins Hezekiah Walker, Israel Houghton, Regina Belle, Karen Clark Sheard, Casey J, and comedian Earthquake. Festival of Praise 2016 Tour will visit some 50 cities, hitting Los Angeles, Denver, Atlanta, New York, Washington DC, Pittsburgh, Austin, Detroit and other cities.
