Gospel Music According To Fred Hammond
Gospel Night enlightened the hearts of many attendees at Wingate Field in Brooklyn recently as Fred Hammond and The Radical for Christ, Israel and the New Breed, and special guest Keith â€œWonderboyâ€? Johnson performed their uplifting songs.
Gospel Night is part of the ongoing Martin Luther King Concert Series hosted by Borough President Marty Markowitz and sponsored by Health Plus, the managed care organization. The series provides the community with performances by top-tier performers for free.
