New Dates Added to Festival of Praise Tour 2014 Featuring Fred Hammond and Donnie McClurkin


The Festival of Praise Tour 2014, featuring multiple GRAMMY®, Stellar and Dove Award-winning recording artists Fred Hammond and Donnie McClurkin, now kicks off on September 17 at Fallbrook Church in Houston.  New dates have also been added (see updated schedule below). The national tour will be presented during Gospel Music Heritage Month and will be held at performing arts venues and mega churches across the country.

On Tuesday, September 16, Hammond and McClurkin will perform live on Tom Joyner’s In Studio Jam.

Fred and Donnie are excited and looking forward to the tour.  Donnie refers to Fred as the “scientist of tours.” Fred is in the final stages of planning the creative aspect. He wants the show’s collaboration to feature him and Donnie onstage together most of the time during the concert. They will perform a series of duets as well as some of their classic hits. “The audience for the Festival of Praise tour will include fans of every musical genre and people from every generation,” says Fred.  “The tour will be anointed, big, and festive, and will include something for everyone.” Fred is also promoting his new single, “I Will Trust,”.

A longtime friend, Donnie recalls that Fred was the first artist to feature him on a national tour. “This tour comes at a time that’s really different for me,” says Donnie. “This is my time of fighting through heaviness. I had a bout of depression last month that was second to none.  I don’t think I ever had it like that in my whole entire life. I want to take all those feelings and funnel them into every aspect of what we do in ministry.  We’ve got to address that spirit of heaviness. We need to sing about it, talk about it and sing about the remedy for it, which is God and one another.”  With a full plate as the Senior Pastor of Perfecting Faith Church in Freeport, NY, host of a nationally syndicated radio show and a judge on Sunday Best, Donnie is currently promoting his latest CD project, Duets.

The Festival of Praise Tour is created by Fred and Ray Hammond and produced by Face To Face, Inc.  Adam Zagor of Universal Attractions Agency is the booking agent and Al Wash of ALW Entertainment is the entertainment consultant.
