Hammond, the 56-year-old who was inducted into the Stellar Gospel Music Awards Hall of Fame Saturday, released the trailer for his upcoming film “The Choir” last week. In the trailer that he debuted on social media, viewers can see glimpses of a terrorist, exotic dancer, and a man battling with depression and anger toward God.
“I love God. But truthfully man, I wonder, am I mad at Him?” Hammond’s character asks in the trailer.
The gospel singer-songwriter and producer told his over 400,000 Twitter followers that he made the film to use it as a tool to reach those who need to feel God’s love.
“This will be a tool that I believe will reaaach waaaay (sic) out to those who may think God doesn’t care about them, or God is through with them,” he wrote of the film. “‘The Choir’ will remind you that God will go anywhere, and I mean anywhere, to come and love you out of your worst situation.#thechoir.”
The film was written by Hammond who co-directed it alongside Ty Sherrell. While Hammond did not reveal a release date, he let it be known that the film was “coming soon” on social media.
