The “Festival of Praise” concert tour is making a stop in Brooklyn on October 30 at the Kings Theatre.
The concert features some of the best names in gospel music including Fred Hammond, Donnie McClurkin, Kim Burrell, Hezekiah Walker, Isaac Carree, Jessica Reedy and Zacardi Cortez.
Marcus Wiley of the “Yolanda Adams Morning Show” will be this year’s festival host. The national tour kicks-off at Fallbrook Church in Houston, TX on September 30, and runs through November 29. Pre-sale tickets for the tour began on Monday, June 8. The theme for this year’s concert is “Trying to Make it Home.”
“The concept of ‘Trying to Make it Home’ is a collaborative effort by the artists on this tour and ties in perfectly with our purpose,” says Hammond, the co-creator of Festival of Praise. “With all the discourse, upheaval and negativity happening around the world, we all agreed that there’s one common thread that people are searching to find. People are trying to reach a safe place and home represents that for many people.”
In conjunction with this year’s theme, Hammond produced “Trying to Make It Home,” a song featuring vocal performances by Hammond, McClurkin, Burrell, Walker, Carree, Reedy and Cortez.
Along with a performance in Brooklyn, the tour is also making a stop in Elizabeth, N.J. at Ritz Theater on October 31
