The Essential Fred Hammond

My family and I have been listening to Gospel music for years. This album contains some of the best spirital and praise songs ever made. I met Fred earlier this year at the home of my brother and sister in TX. When we were told that Fred was coming over my wife and I were so excited.

THE Absolute Best!!!
