"Easter at the Forum" With Special Guest, Gospel Sensation Tamela Mann and Grammy-Award Winning Gospel Legend Fred Hammond in Full Concert

INGLEWOOD, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/10/14 -- Bishop Kenneth C. Ulmer and Faithful Central Bible Church announced its "Easter at the Forum" worship experience, Sunday, April 20th at 10 a.m. with special guest, gospel artist sensation Tamela Mann ("Take Me to the King"). At 12 p.m., the praise continues with Grammy-award winning gospel legend, Fred Hammond, in full concert. Admission is free. Doors open at 9:00 a.m.

"We are thrilled to return to the new fabulous Forum," commented Bishop Kenneth C. Ulmer, Faithful Central's senior pastor-teacher. "We remain committed to offering unique, life-changing worship experiences for the greater Los Angeles community, by enlisting the best artists in gospel music to join our celebration. This year is no exception with gospel giants Tamela Mann and Fred Hammond."

The special guest for the 10 a.m. worship experience is none other than gospel artist sensation, Tamela Mann. An acclaimed actress, NAACP Image Award and Grammy Award nominee and Stellar Award and Dove Award-winning vocalist, as well as wife and mother, Tamela Mann's talent has helped anchor one of the industry's most successful film, TV and theatrical franchises, while her amazing vocal gift is at the top of her impressive resume. Her latest album, "Best Days" debuted at number fourteen on the Billboard 200 and topped the Gospel Albums chart. One of the most powerful tracks on the album is the Grammy-nominated, Stellar Award and Dove Award-winning debut single "Take Me to the King," produced by long-time friend and Gospel icon, Kirk Franklin. The song earned Mann her first Grammy Award nomination for Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music Performance and remained at #1 on the Gospel radio chart for a record number of weeks.

The worship service will transition into full concert, starting at 12 p.m., as the praise continues with Grammy-award winning, gospel legend, Fred Hammond. For more than 27 years, music listeners around the world have known Fred Hammond as a talented songwriter, bassist and vocalist. Few gospel artists can boast of the consistency of sales, radio airplay and concert appearances that Hammond has achieved over the course of his career. As a solo artist, founder of the pioneering urban group, Commissioned, and his work with Radical for Christ combined, Fred has sold over 7 million albums and these endeavors have made him a mainstay on Billboard's Gospel Chart top 10, along with frequent appearances on the magazine's Heatseekers and Music Video Sales charts. Throughout his professional career, Hammond has maintained a reputation for excellence, racking up numerous awards and nominations including the Grammy, BET, N.A.A.C.P. Image, Stellar, Dove, and GMWA Excellence Awards.

In January 2014, The Forum re-opened its doors after undergoing a comprehensive, $100 million renovation project, making it the largest indoor performance venue in the country. The new fabulous Forum delivers a one-of-a-kind experience thanks to its superior acoustics, intimate ambiance and state-of-the-art facilities.
