About KIRK FRANKLIN

Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, Kirk Franklin was raised by his aunt Gertrude after his mom and dad abandoned him. It was there that he discovered his love for music through the church, as Gertrude made it a priority for him to take piano lessons – a gift passed on from her late husband. Kirk first experienced real success with his choir that he composed and aptly named, The Family. It was when he had the opportunity to work with an up-and-coming group, God’s Property, that his success really took off with the Jimmy Iovine inspired remix to “Stomp”. Always one to remain true to his testimony, he received backlash once more for vocalizing his addiction to pornography. With the faith and support of his family, he remains true to his spiritual journey and to inspire faith through his music and his testimony.
