THROWBACK: FRED HAMMOND "NO WEAPON"



Hammond was born in Texas in 1960, but grew up in Detroit with his four siblings. His mother, Mildred Hammond, was herself a musician and was pivotal in steering Hammond in a musical direction. Mildred's work as a choir director exposed Hammond to gospel sounds at churches all over the city. By the age of 12, he was singing in his mother's choir. As he told an interviewer in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, ''I grew up under Stevie Wonder, Earth, Wind and Fire, Prince, the Winans, Andrae Crouch, REO Speedwagon, and classical music. That music reflects all the music that's in me."    


When Hammond was prepared for the next step in his musical development, he was drawn to the Winans. At the time of Hammond's first exposure to them, the Winans were one of gospel music's shining stars, a group that had created a new, more pop- and rhythm-based approach to the form. ''They played ''The Question Is" on the radio, and I knew [the Winans] had made it,"' Hammond related in a Gannett News Service article. ''I knew from that point on, that was something I could reach for."



Isaiah 54:17
New King James Version (NKJV)

17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord.




From The Raydio Twins...
Everyday you have to say to yourself nothing will stop you from reaching your goals or change who you are as a person.
I hear this song and I have to have it work into my spirit because everyday someone or something wants to destroy what it is that GOD has for me.I hope that you will enjoy it this song as much as I do.
