Overview

WITH SPECIAL GUEST Koryn Hawthorne

JUST ADDED! Comedian Travele Judon

Kirk Franklin wants everyone to know one thing. He’s never going to stop pushing the envelope.

Franklin’s latest musical offering—and 13th studio album—is the aptly titled LONG LIVE LOVE from his RCA-distributed label, Fo Yo Soul Recordings. But even before the album’s May 31st release date, its first single is already laying down some serious groundwork.

Celebrating his 26th career anniversary this year, the winner of more than 40 Stellar Awards and 16 Dove Awards is also busy pushing the envelope in other endeavors. Franklin brought his total GRAMMY tally to 14 at the 61st annual ceremony this year when Tori Kelly’s first foray into gospel, the Franklin-produced Hiding Place, won best gospel album. And “Never Alone,” the Franklin co-penned single from the album, was named best gospel performance/song.

After its successful launch in 2018, Franklin’s Exodus Music & Arts Festival—in partnership with Live Nation— returns to Dallas for a second run on May 26th. It stars a lineup of established and emerging artists that includes Fred Hammond, the Clark Sisters, Travis Greene, Tasha Cobbs Leonard and Franklin himself.

Between that and ramping up for the LONG LIVE LOVE Tour in July, Franklin will once again executive-produce and host the ninth season of BET’s top-rated musical competition series Sunday Best. In addition to helming Kirk Franklin’s Praise channel on SiriusXM, the multi-tasker is developing projects under his Fo Yo Soul banner.
