Fred Hammond is a gospel music singer, bass guitar player, and record producer.

Musical career

The Dove and Stellar award winner has been active both as a member of the gospel performing group Commissioned, and as a solo artist (currently for Verity Records). He is a multiple time Grammy, Dove, and Stellar award winner and nominee as a performer and a producer.

Hammond gained notoriety while playing the bass guitars for the gospel group The Winans.amg|id=11:fnfexqw5ldfe|name=Fred Hammond ] By 1985 he was one of the six original members of the group Commissioned, participating in 10 of the group's 12 albums.

After his stint with Commissioned ended, he regained fame in the gospel community after selling millions of albums with his musical group Radical For Christ. In 2002 Hammond returned to the group Commissioned (now with members Keith Staten, Marvin Sapp, Mitchell Jones, Karl Reid, Michael Williams, and Marcus Cole) to produce the "Commissioned Reunion Live" album.

Hammond produced "Make Me Like The Moon", a stirring gospel ballad co-written by Chanté Moore and Kenny Lattimore for their 2006 double-CD of gospel and R&B love songs entitled "Uncovered/Covered" (released October 10, 2006 by LaFace/Verity/Zomba Music Group). He also performs with Sean Combs on the album "Thank You".
