Regardless of one’s personal achievements, success is better when you have loved ones to share it with. Multi-award winning gospel recording artist Fred Hammond is no stranger to success.
His talents as a music producer and singer have taken him all over the world. But when his mother fell ill Hammond said he took on a new role, that of a family care giver. That’s when this industry trendsetter was forced to decrease his busy work schedule so he could care for the one person who helped to support his career goals along the way!
Hammond spoke about his experience as a family caregiver in Dallas recently at MegaFest, the faith and family conference. Hammond was on the caregiver panel with award-winning recording artists Regina Belle, Will Downing and Chris Walker as they spoke about their personal experiences taking care of love ones who either were terminally ill or stricken with an unexpected sickness. Belle’s brother suffered a stroke and she helped take care of him. But it was her own diagnosis with a brain tumor that converted this R&B diva to gospel music.
