The leading single, “Here In Our Praise” has become the most added Gospel song to radio. When asked about how he assembled the group, Fred states, “I wanted to work with men who would work well together and complement each other.  Personally, I have to put Fred Hammond’s solo career and solo personae on hold for the sake of making this group successful.  This is a bigger cause, so I have to step back now and sing background…and I’m happy to do it. And these guys feel the same way…they play their parts. There are no egos.” The United Tenors album is available in stores and all digital media outlets.
