On Saturday, October 4, 2014, multiple Grammy, Stella and Dove award-winning gospel greats, Fred Hammond (Blessed) and Donnie McClurkin (We Fall Down) unite on stage and come to The Westchester County Center for the only New York appearance of the soul-stirring, Festival Of Praise Tour 2014. The national tour which will be held at performing arts venues and mega churches across the country, kicks-off at Verizon Theater in Dallas, Tx on Sept 18th. Special Guest, BET’s Sunday Best Winner Le’Andria Johnson will also be on the bill.
This will be Fred’s first tour since his knee surgery earlier this year. With the new tour and single “I Will Trust,” Fred is looking forward to embracing and reconnecting with his fans. “The Festival of Praise 2014 Tour is going to be an awesome, anointed, praise and worship experience,” explains Fred. “Donnie has been my friend and brother for years and although we have worked together in the past, this is really the first time we have collaborated on an endeavor of this magnitude.”
This is the first tour for Donnie, Senior Pastor of Perfecting Faith Church in Freeport, NY, national radio host and judge on BET’s Sunday Best, since The King’s Men Tour in 2012 which also featured Kirk Franklin, , Marvin Sapp and Israel Houghton. “I can’t begin to express how excited I am to be teaming up with my long-time friend and brother, Fred Hammond, for the Festival of Praise Tour,” says Donnie. “We’re planning a great evening of worship that we know will minister to people across the country and spread the message of God’s love.”
