Comments: 0  | Leave A Comment

If its one thing that Kirk Franklin understands, it is that soul and gospel have always been a part of the same close-knit family. Since the release of his self-titled debut in 1993, Franklin has proved himself a pioneer when he sprinkled a taste of hip-hop in the mix.

He changed musical history with the release of his debut album, KIRK FRANKLIN AND THE FAMILY, the first gospel album to sell more than a million units. In his bold attempt to broaden the range of the traditional gospel audience, Kirk Franklin was willing to take heat from the naysayers as long as it didn’t get in the way of delivering the inspired message. After more than 16 years as the top-selling Contemporary Gospel artist, Kirk Franklin shows no signs of slowing down. Many believe the secret to his continued success is rooted in his artistic genius of being innovative, relevant and authentic.

To date, the musical trendsetter has garnered seven GRAMMY® Awards; an American Music Award; 35 Stellar Awards; 12 Dove Awards (CCM); five NAACP Awards; 2 BET Music Awards, a Soul Train Award and numerous others.
