Grammy and Dove Award winners at The Festival of Praise
One of The Pompano Beach Amp’s most inspiring events is back by popular demand. The Festival of Praise concert, featuring some of the world’s best Gospel singers, will be taking place on Wednesday, Nov. 30 at 7:30 p.m. This year’s “Game of Life” tour will showcase Fred Hammond, Hezekiah Walker, Israel Houghton, Karen Clark Shepherd, Regina Bell and Casey J.
“We’re thrilled that The Pompano Beach Amphitheater will once again be hosting this uplifting event,” said Sharon Stone-Walker, Director of Director Community Liaisons & Business Development for The Creatives, which programs and manages The Amp. “Our community is blessed to have a concert of this magnitude, and we encourage everyone to join their family and friends for a magnificent night of song and worship.”
The Festival of Praise features an array of multiple Grammy and Dove Award winners who perform solo and in groups. Each artist also shares personal stories and preaches their truth, rousing the crowd to a new level of joy. Last year, The Amp was aglow with 3,000 people singing and praising with their hands held high.
Recently Fred Hammond told the Christian Post, “People are tired of a song. They need more than a song,” he said. “You have to bundle something together and make it exciting. Unless you figure out how to do that, you’re going to miss it. Festival of Praise is doing that. This is the one you want to bring the person that skipped church, the person who says, ‘I don’t know if I need the Lord.’ This is the one you want to bring people to.”
Hammond, who recently released his new album, “Worship Journal Live,” is especially excited about this year’s tour, calling it “interactive and visually stunning.”
“The Festival of Praise is more than a concert; it is an experience,” said Stone-Walker. “It is a time for our community to come together and be inspired to greatness.”
