Whether he is performing on stage or carrying on a conversation over the air, he is real…he is dynamic…and he is an explosion of intense energy! The man emits a committed love for Christ and a loyalty to all of God’s people. A conversation with Kirk Franklin reveals a humble man of conviction who does not take the love of Christ for granted. Neither does he take his music for granted, and that is evident as he shares the story of his life through 20 years of song.
The “20 Years in One Night Tour” takes one on a journey of two amazing decades of music. Franklin’s latest album, “Losing My Religion,” travels the valleys of his own trials and tribulations as he acknowledges the faithfulness of God’s devotion.
On Saturday, March 26 at 8 p.m., Heinz Hall will play host to the award-winning artist, songwriter, and producer. Also known as a trailblazer in the genre of urban contemporary gospel, the gifted Franklin is the recipient of 10 Grammys, 41 Stellar awards and 16 Gospel Music Association (GMA) Dove awards. His impact within the realm of music is impressive as he brings his own unique style of boldness, honesty and sincerity. But most impressive is the down-to-earth inspiration he brings to the table.
