Festival of Praise Tour 2015 will be held at arenas, performing arts centers and theaters, across the country. The 50-city concert tour features some of the best names in Gospel music including multiple GRAMMY®, Dove and Stellar Award-winning recording artists Fred Hammond, Donnie McClurkin, Kim Burrell, with Hezekiah Walker (in concert 9/30-10/31) and Israel Houghton (in concert 11/1-11/29).

The national tour kicks-off at Fallbrook Church in Houston, Texas on September 30, and runs through November 29. Pre-sale tickets for the tour begins on Monday, June 8.
The theme surrounds the song “Trying to Make It Home”.
Fred Hammond believes the concept will be welcomed. He says:
“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,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. Many of us are trying to make it home to family, trying to make it home from college, trying to make it home to a better marriage, trying to make it home from sickness and disease, and ultimately, all of us are trying to make it home to heaven.”
