Fred Hammond For more than 25 years, music listeners around the world have known Fred Hammond as a talented songwriter, bassist and vocalist. He is also known throughout the music industry as a gifted musical arranger and producer. But, his work with Face to Face Productions, the company for which he is both founder and CEO, has earned him the title the "Babyface" of gospel.
Hammond first gained recognition while playing bass guitar for The Winans. He has been active as both a solo recording artist and a member of the gospel group Commissioned. A multiple Dove and Stellar award winner and nominee as a performer, vocalist, musician, songwriter and producer, he received his first Grammy for Best Contemporary R&B Gospel Album for Free to Worship (2006). Hammond's most recent album is Love Unstoppable.
Donnie McClurkin winner of three Grammy awards, ten Stellar awards, two BET awards, two Soul Train awards, one Dove award and one NAACP Image award for his work. He is one of the few top selling Gospel music artist's selling over 10 million albums worldwide.
McClurkin's latest release, We All Are One (Live in Detroit), features special guests CeCe Winans, Yolanda Adams, Mary Mary and Karen Clark-Sheard. A founder of the McClurkin Singers in 1979 and the NY Restoration Choir a decade later, this top-selling artist earned Grammys for Again and Psalms, Hymns & Spiritual Songs, in addition to his Dove and Stellar awards.
