Dallas, TX—30th 2016:  As preparations continue for the October 1st, 2016 Festival of Praise Tour launch—the tour’s third consecutive year–Grammy, Stellar, Dove, BET and NAACP Image Award-winning Gospel mega-star and tour founder Fred Hammond marks his return to the road with a just announced radio single, “Father Jesus Spirit,” and his new RCA Inspiration album, “Worship Journal Live,” out September 30th and currently available for pre-order at all digital retailers.  The much-anticipated live cd, his first in 17 years, was recorded before a packed and enthusiastic Houston crowd earlier in May.
 
The star-studded national event he founded several years ago kicks off October 1ST, at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre, and will reach over 50 major cities across the country, running through December, 2016.  Multiple cities have been added since the tour was first announced last month, including Las Vegas, October 5th   and Brooklyn, NY on November 2nd.
 
 In addition, Donnie McClurkin will join the tour for several dates. (See list of confirmed dates, cities and venues below with more to follow.)
     
“FOP 2016 is going to be off the chain!,” Hammond said, adding,
 
“ The thing I love about this tour is that no matter who you are or where you’ve come from, you’re guaranteed to have a great time, something is surely going to inspire you, and you’re going to want to come back again and again! You definitely don’t want to miss this so don’t be late because we’ve got an incredible show planned from beginning to end!”
 
One of the most revered singer/songwriter/producers in Christian music today, Fred Hammond is the triple threat that has gone on to sell over 10 million albums worldwide. He is considered the architect behind the “Urban Praise & Worship” phenomenon in Gospel music today.
 
The Detroit native who is now based in Dallas where tour production is currently underway, plans to release a new CD to coincide with the tour; the new cd is expected out in October on RCA Records.
