Sensational gospel and R&B artists Kirk Franklin, Ledisi, and PJ Morton are bringing their signature sounds to the Fox Theatre!
Kirk Dewayne Franklin was born in Fort Worth (Texas) in 1970 and is a gospel musician, songwriter, choir director, and author. His musical style is best described as a blend of contemporary gospel (an updated, polished version of traditional gospel featuring newly written and a choir that’s absorbed many innovations in soul music, both vocally and musically) and Christian hip hop (a branch of hip hop music characterized by a Christian worldview, with the general purposes of evangelization, edifying some members of the church and/or simply entertaining). He’s had a stellar career with 8 studio albums, 2 compilation albums, and he's lead many urban contemporary gospel choirs including The Family, God's Property and One Nation Crew. He's received many accolades including an American Music Award, 16 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, 12 Grammy Awards, 23 Stellar Awards, and an Urban Music Award. Ledisi Anibade Young is a singer and songwriter whose musical style spans R&B, soul, jazz, neo soul, and gospel. She's released 7 studio albums and has 9 Grammy Award nominations (for Best New Artist, Best R&B Song, Best Female R&B Vocal Performance, and 3 for Best R&B Album and Best R&B Performance ). Her latest album (Let Love Rule) comes out on 22nd September 2017.
