Gospel stars tour after recent operations
 the Grammy-winning gospel singers are preparing for the Festival of Praise Tour, which spans 31 cities.
The tour, which includes Minneapolis, Cleveland, Miami and Atlanta, kicked off this week as McClurkin recovers from surgery to remove precancerous cells from one of his vocal cords and Hammond recuperates after having a bilateral knee replacement.
Doctors removed an inch of scar tissue from McClurkin's right vocal cord in mid-August.

Gov. Steve Bullock said Friday that Montana can comply with the Obama administration's climate pollution reduction plan while protecting many energy sector jobs and avoiding the closure of coal plants that account for most of the state's emissions.
The White House goal of cutting greenhouse gas emissions 30 percent from 2005 levels by 2030 has generated a backlash in many coal-dependent states.
With Friday's announcement, Bullock, a Democrat, moved to blunt those criticisms by offering alternatives to reach the administration's goal without shutting down coal plants.
A Montana Department of Environmental Quality study released by Bullock offered five potential scenarios, including the more aggressive use of renewable energies, greater efficiencies and new technologies to capture carbon dioxide and keep it from entering the atmosphere.
Draft rules from the Environmental Protection Agency in June give states flexibility to decide how to meet their share of the nationwide reduction in carbon dioxide levels.
Roach, who played every defensive snap in 2013, has yet to be cleared through the NFL's protocol for concussions and is questionable to play against the Patriots.
