More details from RCF (www.rcf.it):

The 2018 Festival of Praise tour featuring gospel greats Fred Hammond, Donnie McClurkin, Take 6, James Fortune and Pastor Charles Jenkins heads out with this year’s theme “Texture of a Man”.

Manager Ray Hammond says he is confident he’s using RCF once again to assure the audiences coming to see them will be able to hear the words of praise and enjoy the music of the Grammy and Dove award winning artists. This year they’re using the RCF HDL50-A large format line array system with 24 HDL50-A dual 12” three-way line array cabinets, 12 SUB9007-AS dual 21” subwoofers, along with 12 HDL20-A dual 10” line array cabinets for side fills in venues where necessary.

The theme of this year’s tour is “Texture of a Man”. As Hammond explains, “The program looks at a view of a man from a woman’s perspective. There’s more to a man than meets the eye,” continuing how their message also provides, “reflections of how men should look at women – a gift from God above.”

The tour features Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter, filmmaker and multi-platinum producer Fred Hammond. Hammond is a Christian music icon having sold over 15-million albums with 12 #1 hits. Also appearing is Tke 6, the most awarded a cappella group in history with 10 Grammy and 10 Dove Awards; multiple Grammy, Stellars, Dove and NAACP award winner Donnie McClurkin; along with gospel chart-toppers James Fortune and Pastor Charles Jenkins.
