Festival of Praise, a 50-city concert tour features some of the biggest and best names in the industry, including Fred Hammond, Donnie McClurkin, Kim Burrell, Hezekiah Walker and Israel Houghton. Also on tour, Isaac Carree, Jessica Reedy and Zacardi Cortez. Hosting the festival is comedian Marcus Wiley of the “Yolanda Adams Morning Show”.
How do some of the biggest names in Gospel perform all their hits?

Can urban artists join the tour?
“Wherever we’re at, we don’t care if they’re urban or not, we get them to come and hang out with us.”
