The Rock & Roll Hall of FAME honors Kirk Franklin


If the world embraces you like this, Christ is NOT in what you are doing.

John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum will honor Kirk Franklin in a tribute to rock’s gospel roots. Franklin will perform and various artists including Fred Hammond, Donnie McClurkin and church ensembles from across Cleveland will honor him through music. Special guest Daymond John will emcee. This event is free but a general admission ticket is necessary. Tickets will be available for Rock Hall members on Monday, March 5 and to the general public on Tuesday, March 6 at www.playhousesquare.org.

Kirk Franklin’s 1993 debut album, Kirk Franklin and the Family, was the first gospel album in history to sell more than one million records. To date, the contemporary gospel artist has won seven GRAMMY® Awards, an American Music Award, 35 Stellar Awards, 12 Dove Awards (CCM), five NAACP Awards, two BET Music Awards, a Soul Train Award and more. Franklin is also the host and co-executive producer of the BET original series, Sunday Best, the network’s first gospel talent competition.
