Internationally renown gospel artist Fred Hammond has collaborated with philanthropist Roy Campbell, his business partner, under a distribution agreement with Universal Music Christian Group for a brand new project called “Life in the Word.”
The album will feature some of the world’s greatest gospel artists.
“We are honored that Fred Hammond chose UMCG as the place where he could develop and unfurl his vision,” said Rhoda Lawrence, Vice President of UMCG. “People are thirsty for music that tackles everyday issues in their lives and they want it delivered in a way that speaks to them. Fred Hammond has the talent and the vision to propel gospel music to new heights; appealing to and inspiring music fans of all age groups and walks of life. Fred is passionate about artistry and about his lifelong mission to transform people’s lives. When you have the opportunity to play a part in something of this magnitude, first you pinch yourself and then you get to work.”
This great project will be released for purchase July 27 of this year. The first single, “You Do Great Things” is the first great primer of the production.
“The opportunity to form my label couldn’t come at a better time,” said Hammond, President and CEO of Hammond Family Entertainment. “Out of the box thinking and creativity is what we are producing here. The projects that we have in development will further my artistic expression and expose my devoted music fans and beyond to another dimension of the Fred Hammond brand.”
Other great singles include “Dwelling Place,” a devotional song of praise, “Hiding Place” and “Need My Time With You.”
