Face to Face incorporation started by co-producing 1997’s gospel tour, The Tour of Life, which amassed massive crowds of more than half a million fans. This paved way for their inaugural Festival of Praise tour in 2014. Initially, festival of praise started as a 50 plus city tour which Fred Hammond headlined alongside Donnie McClurkin. Since then, the tour has been successfully arranged with notable appearances from Kim Burrell, Jessica Reedy, Take 6, Earthquake, Casey J, and many more. Fred Hammond, the Gospel music pioneer, has been producing music since 1985. He has influenced many pop stars, including Justin Bieber, Jamie Foxx, Chance the rapper, to name a few. He has sold millions of records and topped Billboard charts, but his festival of praise performances are always given special appreciation.
Once again, festival of praise promises to be a lively worship experience. The performers have an unmatched energy commitment towards what they’re doing, and a similar feeling radiates through the crowds as well. The crowd is always animated, and they participate in the experience by stomping their feet and clapping their hands, encouraging the performers. 2022’s Festival of Praise brings something exciting for every local city that they perform in. They will offer a talented local choir the opportunity to perform in the show.
