For gospel living legend Fred Hammond, I Will Trust isn’t just the title of his latest CD; it’s a bold declaration in the face of pain, doubt and fear that has helped carry him through “the most physically and emotionally taxing experience” and year of his life.

In January, the multiple Stellar, Dove and Grammy Award-winning artist underwent an excruciating double knee replacement surgery – the same surgery that claimed the life of his biological father – and his road to recovery has been a public one. This past fall, Hammond wrapped up a two month, 32-city “Festival of Praise Tour” (with Donnie McClurkin), sharing his real-time journey of learning to walk again with audiences night after night.

Now, more than 60% recovered, the 53-year-old father of two is healing more than just his knees. He’s exercising his faith, growing emotionally as a man and continuing to create soulful music that encourages and empowers others to keep walking even when it’s hard.

He’s focused on the better that is to come and living in gratitude of all that’s been.
