Biography

Biography
  Kirk Franklin

Band Members: Kirk Franklin

Known for his unique blend of gospel and hip-hop music, Kirk Franklin has changed what contemporary worship music looks like. Unafraid to tackle any subjects, his content is raw and always on the edge and comes from a heart that is restored and alive in Christ. Winner of 5 Grammys and 11 Dove Awards; since his debut, 1993s Kirk Franklin & the Family, Kirk Franklin has been one of the brightest stars in contemporary gospel music. The album spent 100 weeks on the gospel charts (some of those on top), crossed over to the R&B charts, and became the first gospel debut album to go platinum. His second album, Kirk Franklin & the Family Christmas, became the genres first Christmas album to make it to number one, and his 1996 album Whatcha Lookin 4 went gold as soon as it was distributed. With such phenomenal success, it is small wonder that some have hailed him "the Garth Brooks of gospel." Still, despite all the adulation and brouhaha, Franklin remains a humble, devout Christian, eschewing the title "entertainer" in favor of labeling himself as just a "church boy."
