Hire Kirk Franklin for your festival or concert plans.
At the forefront of today's gospel music, Kirk Franklin, best known for his platinum success with "The Family," has
broken down many musical barriers since he exploded on the
international scene. In the process, he's achieved unprecedented
success and become gospel's #1 renaissance man. His first album,
Franklin and the Family," was certified platinum, a
gospel milestone. His critically acclaimed follow-up CD, 1996's "Whatcha
Lookin' 4," sold more than 900,000 (and counting) copies. As
astute in business as well as music, Franklin's Fo Yo Soul company
banner has a multi-year production deal with B-Rite Records.
Hire Kirk Franklin for your very special event or occasion.
Founded in 1992 by Linda Searight, the God's
Property organization centers around high moral standards with
emphasis on education and achievement through artistic expression and
performance. Ranging in age from 16 to 26, and under the brilliant
direction of Robert Searight from its inception, the choir (often at-risk,
inner-city based young people) is accompanied by an incredible five
piece band. Their repertoire ranges from spirituals to praise song, to
traditional and contemporary gospel. Franklin, of course, has expanded
their voices and vision.
The God's Property/Kirk Franklin relationship
goes way back, and beyond the recording studio, where he often works
out new material with the choir. He's appeared with God's Property on
The Late Show with
Letterman, while the choir itself performed with mega-pop star,
Celine Dion, at the encore of the media acclaimed "Call The
Man/Power of the Dream" concert in Dallas and on The 10th Annual
Essence Awards with Stevie Wonder.
In 1996, Franklin's song "Joy" was recorded by Whitney Houston and the
Choir. With production by Houston and Mervyn Warren, the composition was
included on the best-selling gospel album of all time, soundtrack to The
In 2001, he produced the soundtrack for the film Kingdom Come. The
soundtrack included gospel artists
Mary Mary, Trin-i-tee 5:7,
Crystal Lewis, and Franklin's group 1NC, as well as mainstream artists
Shawn Stockman of Boyz II
Men and others.
The Rebirth of Kirk Franklin was released in February 2002 after being
delayed. It topped the Gospel Albums chart for 29 weeks, was No. 1 on the Hot
R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and was certified Platinum. The album featured
collaborations with Bishop T.D. Jakes,
Willie Neal Johnson, TobyMac,
Crystal Lewis, Jaci
Velasquez, Papa San,
and Yolanda Adams.
In January 2010, after Haiti had a devastating earthquake, Kirk Franklin
got an ensemble of gospel artists together to sing the song he wrote, called
"Are You Listening". They included
Tamela Mann, David Mann,
Bishop Paul S. Morton, J. Moss,
Karen Clark-Sheard, Kierra Sheard,
CeCe Winans, and Marvin
Franklin's 11th studio album called Hello Fear was released on March 22,
2011. The album features
Marvin Sapp, Mali Music, Marvin Winans,
John P. Kee, and Rance
Allen. The first single, "I Smile", peaked at No. 85 on the Billboard Hot 100,
making it his first appearance on that chart in six years.
Kirk Franklin has, without a doubt, changed
modern music more than any other artist in the last decade. He has
been called the architect for a new American musical genre. This
minister has incorporated contemporary hip-hop music with traditional
gospel choir arrangements to reach our youth with a positive and
uplifting message. The viability of his music ministry has prompted
every major label to institute a Gospel Music division.
Kirk Franklin was taunted and teased as a
child, but his faith and his remarkable musical talent helped him
overcome the odds. "What motivates me," he says, "is
the knowledge that God has redeemed me from the pain and the hurts and
the sin of my past and given me a new joy I can't even explain. It's
not just for show," he says, "It's the truth, and that's what I want to express."
