Why See Kirk Franklin?
Don't miss Gospel Icon Kirk Franklin
Kirk Franklin is at the forefront of the modern Gospel music scene. It seems he was always destined to lead others in song, as the seven-time Grammy Winning musician, choir leader and author displayed signs of musical virtuosity at a young age. By 12 he was leading his local Church and went on to found a 17 person strong choir called The Family, with which he released a certified platinum debut and the award winning 'Watcha Lookin' 4'.
Expressing life, spirit and love through music, as well as inspiring others to be inspired and reflect on human experience, Franklin takes to the stage with the energy of an evangelical preacher. The love child of James Brown and Mahalia Jackson, the charismatic performer whips up praise and worship euphoria with spirited performances of hip-hop tinged gospel anthems like 'Why We Sing', 'Silver & Gold', 'He Can Handle It' and 'He's Able'. For the best part of three decades Kirk's been bringing it to the masses and has lost none of the career-defining voice and verve that has become has trademark.
