*Fred Hammond’s fHammond Family Entertainment’s inaugural CD project, “Life in the Word” debuted on Billboard’s Top Gospel Album Chart at the no. 2 spot. The singer also has another album on the chart, “Love Unstoppable” coming in at no. 6 this week.

“Fred has accomplished an incredible, rare feat this week,” said Rhoda Lawrence, vice president of Universal Music Christian Group. “Two albums in the Top 10 is amazing. ‘Life In The Word’ is off to a fantastic start. It’s a ‘must have’ for all of his fans.”

On Thursday, August 5, the Tom Joyner Morning Show’s In Studio Jam will feature a live performance and interview with Hammond. Some of Hammond’s greatest hits and songs from his latest album will also be feature on the show.

“’Life in the Word’ offers something a little different,” Hammond commented, “It’s easy for my audience to know where I’m coming from as an artist. They don’t want a lot of tricks, they don’t want to just listen—they want to participate. “This is the other side of my style.”
