Kirk Franklin: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

    Dauer: 15:33

    NPR Music's Tiny Desk series will celebrate Black History Month by featuring four weeks of Tiny Desk (home) concerts and playlists by Black artists spanning different genres and generations each week. The lineup includes both emerging and established artists who will be performing a Tiny Desk concert for the first time. This celebration highlights the beautiful cornucopia of Black music and our special way of presenting it. We hope you enjoy.
    Bobby Carter | February 25, 2021
    Kirk Franklin, set up with his band and choir in a corner of Uncle Jessie's Kitchen, makes a declaration. "I know you're at home right now, in your draws, listening to some Jesus music. It's ok. Jesus loves you in your draws!" The Arlington, Texas studio, named after a long time close friend, features a large photo of the iconic "I AM A MAN" protest signs from the 1968 Memphis Sanitation Strike on the wall. The jubilant energy that Franklin and company emit, juxtaposed with a visual reminder of the strife that Black people have endured is illustrative of the importance of gospel music in the Black community.
    For nearly 30 years, Franklin has been widely regarded for revolutionizing gospel. He incorporated secular music, particularly hip-hop, while preserving the message and integrity of traditional gospel. Here, he and his powerhouse choir pace through a decades-long, sixteen Grammy award winning discography of faith, praise and encouragement while cracking plenty of jokes. I cannot recall a more moving Tiny Desk home performance.
    All month long, we've presented artists that speak to the diversity and complexity of Black music--where we've been, where we are and where we're going. For the final show, we take it back to the spiritual roots and there's no one more fitting to cap things off than Mr. Kirk Franklin.

I love Kirk Franklin and his music. NPR news? Supports a platform that slaughters babies. Don't be deceived. I can only figure Kirk chose to bring the Lord's love, despite management's illness.

“ I don’t want to love nobody but you” Is unfortunately not what the word of God says. We are to love the Lord our God with all our heart soul and strength and to love thy neighbor as they self. Sorry but this song is misleading and theologically incorrect. I wouldn’t sing this anymore.

It has lately been very difficult for me and my wife, emotionally and psychologically. But after listening to this a few days ago, I cried tears of joy and I sang and danced along these amazing songs with my 3 yr. old daughter. Its her first time hearing Gospel music and I’m thrilled she enjoyed the songs. I’m grateful for the power of the music and more importantly for the power behind the messages of the songs. Thank you NPR, Kirk and to all these amazing musicians and singers. The Philippines is currently in the longest lockdown in the world and so I really miss seeing family, friends and miss living life without fear or worry of covid. I have been sending condolences almost daily to friends and loved ones because of the many deaths caused by covid, but I now choose to fight another day. I’m a tad bit better because of this. Thank you thank you thank you 🙏🏽

A platform to perform...Love not world 🌎 neither the things in the world 🌎 too much Disco 🕺 and not Gospel...Prince and Michael Jackson did not serve the Lord Jesus Christ and when you’re like the world 🌍 your life speaks for it. What words come out your mouth comes from your heart. It’s not what goes in your mouth that defiles a man it’s what comes out the mouth that defiles a man because it comes from the heart ❤️ get it together before you 🔥forever...it’s sick 😷 sad 😢 and pathetic! You will pay for what you say...and go through for what you do...OBEY ACTS 2:38 to get it STRAIGHT!!!
