Kirk Franklin will perform at the Louisville Palace
Top-selling contemporary gospel artist and nine-time GRAMMY Award winner Kirk Franklin will showcase his impressive career of more than two decades with the “20 Years in One Night” tour, coming to the Louisville Palace in downtown Louisville, Ky., for one show only on Thursday, March 31, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. (doors at 6:30 p.m.).
Known as an incomparable artist, speaker, author, businessman and humanitarian, Kirk Franklin has been a mainstay atop the Billboard music charts for more than 20 years with a fusion of the gospel message and hip-hop beats. Bridging the gap between the faith community and mainstream urban music culture, Franklin is the first gospel artist to sell over 1 million units, alongside 20 No. 1 hit singles on gospel radio and eight crossover singles to mainstream urban and urban adult contemporary radio.
As the music industry struggles to remain connected to fans weary of microwave stars, many believe the secret to Franklin’s continued success is rooted in the artistic genius of being innovative, relevant and authentic about his faith. Franklin has always been transparent about being abandoned by his parents, adopted by his grandmother and his humble beginnings, connecting to his audience through his music and frank discussions of life issues.
In addition to his musical endeavors, Franklin is the author of The New York Times bestseller “The Blueprint” and is Chairman & CEO of Fo Yo Soul Entertainment based in Dallas, which includes Fo Yo Soul Recordings (a joint venture with RCA Records), a management arm and a booking and touring division that includes both performances and speaking engagements. Other projects include Kirk Franklin’s Praise channel on SiriusXM Radio, Kirk Franklin’s Gospel Brunch and Gospel Music Tours (House of Blues), and his role as musical co-host of Game Show Network’s American Bible Challenge as well as host and executive producer of BET’s highest rated gospel show, Sunday Best, now in its 8th season.
Franklin and his wife, Tammy, have been married for 19 years and live in Dallas with their four children. His most recent album, Losing My Religion, is now available.
