Touring, Recording, Host of “Sunday Best” and now the subject of a new biopic!
Gospel icon Kirk Franklin, currently on the road on the Long Live Love Tour and will be in the Bay Area August 14 at the Fox Theatre. He’s in Nashville now but Sunday Morning Inspiration will catch up with him today around 10 am!
The always busy Grammy, Dove and Stellar award-winning singer/songwriter and Host of “Sunday Best” will be the subject of a new Sony film co-produced by his “Fo Yo Soul” Productions imprint along with Minister/Author/ Motivational speaker, DeVon Franklin under his production house Franklin Productions.
Devon Franklin has brought us faith-based films like Miracles from Heaven, The Star and most recently Breakthrough.
This biopic will certainly be a Franklin Franklin production!
The film chronicles Kirk’s upbringing in Fort Worth, Texas, where he first learned his love for music by singing in his family’s church choir, to his rise to fame as one of the most successful gospel artists in the world. The flick will also cover the trials and tribulations he encountered as his career and fame sky-rockets,
Kirk released his first album Kirk Franklin & The Family, was ground breaking —becoming the highest selling gospel record at the time! His songs have served as the soundtrack to our lives and our inspiration such as Melodies From Heaven, Silver and Gold, Looking For You and Revolution, just to name a few!
Kirk is currently traveling the nation on his Long Live Love with his latest album of the same name that has broken yet another record to become the first artist in history to top all five Billboard gospel charts simultaneously.
