I had the awesome opportunity to interview Fred Hammond on the "Mr. P In the Afternoon" radio show on Thursday, September 19th on PraizePower 1350 WLOU and the New Praize 104.7. Not only is Fred Hammond one of the greatest cutting-edge gospel innovators of our day, he is passionate in his call to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through medium of gospel music. He shared about how his mentor, Bishop Marvin Winans "took him to school" very early in his career, on being the originator of urban praise and worship in introducing the praise team concept to the black church (previously prevalent only in white churches), his method of rearranging classic traditional gospel songs, and reintroducing them to this generation, and how he step out on faith to establish his production company after being inspired by and having seen what producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and Prince were doing with their companies. He spoke to high divorce rate in the church as inspiration behind the project, "God, Love and Romance."
One of our callers asked about Hammond's relationship with Bishop T.D. Jakes as Hammond is often spotted in the audience sitting on the third row on The Potter's House television program. Hammond moved from Detroit to Dallas and has been attending The Potter's House for eight years. Oh, and Fred, I feel like we are on first-name basis now (LOL!), shared that his father is originally from Louisville and that he is related to some of the Hammonds from Louisville. There was so much more I wanted to talk about but time just wouldn't permit. Needless to say, we are in for an awesome worship experience on Friday, October 4th when Fred Hammond and the United Tenors come to Louisville. Keep listening to WLOU for the exciting details!
