Background Track: "Lord of the Harvest" by Fred Hammond, from his album Speak Those Things: POL Chapter 3
 
He is to release a new live album, which when recorded in concert featured Israel Houghton (of Israel & New Breed), Joann Rosario, and Ruben Studdard, among others.
 
Fred Hammond is probably the most popular member of Commissioned. He is known most for his signature voice and bass guitar-playing, for playing with different Winans groups, for his group, Radical For Christ, his production company, Face to Face Productions, and also for his new label, F. Hammond Music. In Commissioned, he is known for songs like "Running Back To You", "King of Glory", "Let Me Tell It", "A Praise For You", "Lord Jesus Help Me (Help Somebody Else)", "Work On Me", "I Can't Live Without You", "Here I Am (More Than A Conqueror)", "I Really Love The Lord" [and Interlude](on the bass guitar), "Secret Place" (vocalist and bass guitar), and other songs, and is also known for his production and songwriting skills (take his songs with Radical For Christ as an example). He released his first solo album in 1991, and left the group after the Commissioned album Matters of the Heart to join with the group Radical For Christ in late 1994-1995, and produced the albums Praise In The House (which is creditted to Radical For Christ, but includes Fred Hammond and Keith Staten) and their more mainstream album The Inner Court. an explosive combination producing many #1 hits and chart-toppers. His hit songs include "Let The Praise Begin", "If My People", "I Came To Jesus (As I Was)", "Mender of Broken Hearts", "We're Blessed", and a remake of the Sam Cooke classic "Jesus Be A Fence". His latest album, Somethin' 'Bout Love, was released on June 8, 2004. It includes guests such as Marvin Winans, Sr., Marvin Winans, Jr., Brian McKnight, and Warren Campbell. (Sidenote: I cannot stand Fred Hammond's new hairdo! The dreadlocks MUST GO!!!)
 
Fred Hammond has recently appeared in the movie The Gospel, and his music is in the soundtrack.
 
He received accolades at the 2006 Stellar Awards.
