NEW YORK – August 20, 2014 – Earlier this month, gospel artist Fred Hammond debuted his highly anticipated new single, “I Will Trust” on Facebook and the response was tremendous. To date, the “I Will Trust” post has received over 15,000 Likes, 5,000 shares and numerous comments from fans. “I Will Trust” is Hammond’s personal testimony birthed from his recent double knee replacement surgery and serves as a powerful anthem for all. The song is the first single from Hammond’s forthcoming album on RCA Inspiration. “I Will Trust” is available now on all digital music providers.

“After my double knee replacement surgery, simple tasks like going to the restroom or putting on my socks felt almost impossible without assistance,” said Fred Hammond. “This was a low point for me…as I lay there in bed often times with tears running down my face uncontrollably… I would whisper to myself ‘I have to trust Him,’ ‘I must trust Him,’ ‘I will trust you’.”

In addition to being in the studio working on his latest project, the talented songwriter, producer, vocalist and CEO of Face to Face Productions Corporation is gearing up to hit the road with label mate Donnie McClurkin for the Festival of Praise Tour this fall.

About Fred Hammond

For three amazing decades, singer/songwriter/producer/musician Fred Hammond has been a gospel music arbiter, consistently pushing the genre into new melodic territory. The Detroit native ascended from bass-playing sideman for The Winans; to founding member of the trendsetting sextet Commissioned; to creating the further renowned ensemble Radical for Christ, to becoming a highly influential solo artist and producer in his own right. Unforgettable songs such as “Blessed;” No Weapon;” “King of Glory;” “Celebrate (He Lives);” “Let the Praise Begin” and more have lifted the spirits of millions both cross-culturally and cross-generationally. His 1998 release PAGES OF LIFE: CHAPTERS 1 & 2 is a double platinum-seller and his award wins over the years have recognized his excellence in all areas upfront (Best Male Vocalist, Best Album and Best Song) as well as behind the scenes (for songwriting and producing). Fred Hammond is the recipient of multiple Stellar and Dove Awards and received a GRAMMY® Award for Best Contemporary R&B Gospel Album for FREE TO WORSHIP.
