Style: Urban praise and worship; compare to John P. Kee, Donnie McClurkin, and Israel & New Breed
Top tracks: "Awesome God," "Take My Hand," "I Know What He's Done"
In a nutshell: Beginning his gospel music career as bassist for The Winans and furthering his enduring his journey as a founding member of Commissioned, Fred Hammond needs little introduction. But even the music legend's prestigious history is eclipsed by his solo career, verified by mantles of Grammy, Stellar and Dove Awards, walls of Gold and Platinum records and collaborations with secular titans like Diddy. His seventh solo CD continues to buff his gospel star. Embedding his "Warehouse Worship" blueprint into the recording process for Love Unstoppable results in a hearty live urban worship sound that is worthy of his entire golden back catalog.
