Gospel music worship leader Fred Hammond will release I Will Trust under the RCA Inspiration label on November 17. The album marks a return to the style of Praise & Worship Hammond defined as the standard early in his career. The powerful title track "I Will Trust" is also the lead single for the album, which will be released in November 2014.
Writing on facebook, Hammond announces: "FAM!!! I Will Trust (THE ALBUM) is now available for pre-order! 2 songs available for download NOW and you can preview 90 sec clips of ALL TRACKS. Check it out here on iTunes...https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/i-will-trust/id930165048 "
Hammond has been active both as a member of the gospel performing group Commissioned, and as a solo artist (currently for Verity Records). He is a multiple Grammy-, Dove-, Stellar-award winner and nominee as a performer, producer and writer. Hammond first gained recognition while playing bass guitar for the gospel group The Winans.
By 1985 he was one of the six original members of the group Commissioned, participating in 10 of the group's 12 albums. After his time with Commissioned ended, he regained fame in the gospel community after selling millions of albums with his musical group Radical For Christ.
In 2002 Hammond returned to the group Commissioned (now with members Keith Staten, Marvin Sapp, Mitchell Jones, Karl Reid, Michael Williams, and Marcus Cole) to produce the Commissioned Reunion Live album. Hammond produced Make Me Like The Moon, a stirring gospel ballad co-written by Chanté Moore and Kenny Lattimore for their 2006 double-CD of gospel and R&B love songs entitled Uncovered/Covered (released October 10, 2006 by LaFace/Verity/Zomba Music Group). He also performs with Sean Combs on the album Thank You.
