“Festival Of Praise 2016 Tour” coming back to JAX, FL for one night

For the third consecutive year, Grammy, Stellar, Dove, BET and NAACP Image Award-winning Gospel mega-star Fred Hammond returns to the road with the Festival of Praise 2016 Tour – the star-studded national event he founded several years ago.  And Jacksonville, Florida will be one of the stops the tour will make, for one night only on Thurs., Dec. 1, 2016.  Tickets are available below.  You may recall the JAX venue from last year (2015 Veterans Memorial Arena), well, if you don’t get your tickets fast; you may not get a seat for the event at the Times Union Center.

The National “Game of Life” Tour hits major cities including, LA, Denver, Detroit, Atlanta, DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Newark, Jacksonville and many more.  The kick off date is October 1st, at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, Washington, and will reach over 50 major cities across the country, running through December, 2016. (See the list of confirmed dates, cities and venues HERE with more to follow).  There will be shows in over 50 cities that are planned for the 2016 tour which coincides with new Hammond RCA Fall 2016 release date.

Multi-Award Winning Gospel icon Fred Hammond brings soul-stirring music and top artists for a third year, to cities around the US.  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. Hammond is considered the architect behind the “Urban Praise & Worship” phenomenon in Gospel music today.  The Detroit native is now based in Dallas, where tour production originated.

The Festival of Praise Tour 2016 will feature performances by the biggest names in the industry including Hezekiah Walker, the singer/composer/choir leader/radio host, and visionary founder and Senior Pastor of the Love Fellowship Tabernacle Churches in Brooklyn, and Bensalem, PA.; the electrifying Israel Houghton & New Breed, bringing the voices and sounds of music with African, Middle Eastern and South American slants; and Karen Clark Sheard, the multi-Grammy® winner and former member of the legendary female group, The Clark Sisters.  The lineup also features: Casey Janice Hobbs (“Casey J”) best known for her Number 1 hit song, “Fill Me Up,” and Regina Belle, who recorded the Grammy® winning song, “A Whole New World,” for the film, Aladdin.  Comedian “Earthquake” will serve as show host.

Fred Hammond has been quoted to say, “FOP 2016 is going to be off the chain!  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!”
