Kirk Franklin


Letter K is definitely for Kirk Franklin, one of the dopest gospel artists I know! 😊

I grew up listening to Kirk Franklin’s songs. I still remember choreographing some of them as a kid. Some 20 years down the line, I’m still intrigued by his songs and how God has kept him relevant.

Growing up then, I knew all the lyrics to ‘Revolution’ and some other songs. We had tapes back then and they would come with this folded paper that had all the lyrics. Dang! I feel quite old remembering that. 😁 (shout out to all the 90s kids) tape

I literally grew up to almost all his songs. ‘Cause I remember listening to them as a kid, as a teenager and now as a young adult.  Dude! Are you my ‘fairy-god-father’ or something? *thinking out loud* 😃

The other day on BET, I was watching the ‘Celebration of Gospel’ where Kirk Franklin presented some songs from his last album. He didn’t look old and worn out. He was still jumping and dancing all over the place! It’s amazing! At 46, he’s still really awesome!

While for me, I do a little thing and I feel tired and worn out. I face a bad break and I coil up at the curb, washing my face with tears while life passes me by. How pathetic! If people twice my age are still crazy about God, what excuse do I have?

Praising God shouldn’t only happen when things are rosy and the sky is blue. We should be able to thank Him when it seems like there’s absolutely nothing to be thankful for- because, there is! There’s always something to be grateful for.

Another reason why I really love Kirk Franklin’s songs is the honesty in them. He writes some really deep songs for the brokenhearted as well as some really cool songs for those whose spirits are high.

I still have some songs from his last album ‘Losing My Religion ‘ on repeat. You have no idea how much songs like ‘My world needs you right now’ and ‘Pray for me’ helped me through the bad days. (You should check out that album if you haven’t).

I bless God for his life and the lives of all the artists who show that gospel music is not ‘boring’.😉

This is so ANOMALY!!!

Lecrae Moore, born on Oct 9, 1979 is my all time favourite gospel rapper. He’s popularly known as ‘Lecrae’ and he’s simply amazing! He brings the funk into gospel music. His lyrics are mind blowing!
He is a leading Christian hip hop artist and an inspiration to a lot of gospel artists.

Lecrae has won some awards and has been nominated for a lot more including the BET hip hop awards. He won the Grammy Awards in 2013 with his album ‘Gravity’. Lecrae has also released so many awesome albums including Gravity, Church Clothes, Rebel amongst others.

His latest album ANOMALY was released early Sept, 2014 and you really haven’t heard Christian hip hop if you haven’t listened to this dope album! Sources say he’s going on tour for the new album, ANOMALY. My favourite songs in this new album are ‘Nuthin’, ‘Say I won’t (ft Andy Mineo), and ‘Fear’…I hope he includes them on tour!

I really like Christian hip hop and Lecrae is my go to guy for some hot gospel hip hop. I’d be blasting his songs in my room, dancing to the beats with careless abandon! *big grin*

God has really been using him and I pray a lot of gospel artists with original inspirational lyrics emerge especially in my country. All they need is support and prayers. So folks, let’s keep cheering them on! Lecrae you rock! I’m a huge fan! God bless you!
