Multiple Stellar, Dove, and Grammy® Award-winning gospel superstar Fred Hammond is releasing his highly-anticipated new album I WILL TRUST, on Monday, November 17, 2014. Hammond, who underwent an excruciating double knee surgery in January, pours his soul into this project and delivers his most intimate album to date. Featuring a strong mix of anointed ballads and foot-stomping praise, the 12-track offering is Hammond’s personal and powerful declaration of faith and victory. I WILL TRUST is available now for pre-order on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play. Upon pre-order, fans will receive instant access to three stand-out tracks: “I Will Trust,” “Festival of Praise,”and “It’s Only the Comforter.”
Featuring the powerful single “I Will Trust,” listeners turned out in droves for an early taste of Hammond’s album on his recent hit fall tour, the Festival of Praise Tour, where he and tour-mate Donnie McClurkin performed in 30-plus cities within two months. Executive-produced by Hammond with his brother Raymond Hammond, Fred Hammond’s prolific songwriting talents are out in full force on every track of I WILL TRUST. Hammond’s ongoing journey to recovery takes flight in his robust vocals—stirring melodies to strengthen listeners in their faith, inspire deep reflection, and give praise.
Continuing on the road this month in support of the album, Fred Hammond will hit Dallas, Houston and Atlanta the week of release, with a special album-release listening event at Houston’s Windsor Village United Methodist Church on the evening of November 17th, as well as an in-store album signing at Atlanta’s LifeWay Christian Store on November 18th. Stay tuned as Hammond joins again with Donnie McClurkin, for more dates on the Festival of Praise Tour expected in 2015.

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).
