Kirk Franklin Joins The Fam & Chats About Album 'Long Live Love'

Kirk franklin

Kirk Franklin has a lot to celebrate. The return of Sunday's Best ninth season and the debut of his album, Long Live, Love are just to name a few. Obviously The Steve Harvey Morning Show had to invite the 13-time Grammy-winning legend to catch up on life. Here are our top three favorite moments of our chat with Kirk Franklin.

  • Kirk highly values family time. When it comes onto making music, Kirk has found a balance between family time and work. I mean...when the spirit hits, the spirit hits! Of course, it took a while for him to master the ability to stay present when around loved ones. However, when it came to being with his kids, they always came first.

  • He's a singer! Don't be mistaken. Just because he's not hitting Luther Vandross notes doesn't mean the gospel icon doesn't need his singing credits.

  • He has normal family issues. Living a golden life of worship has its good days, but bad days are sure to follow. Kirk opened up to The Fam about dealing with a sister in jail, forgiving the biological father he never knew, and helping another family member seek treatment in rehab.
