He Praised The Almighty - And Broke Records To Do It
Now Behold The Lamb (1995)
“Now Behold The Lamb” is a Kirk Franklin classic, sung across the globe in churches and praise halls alike. This mega-hit introduced Tamela Mann and her powerhouse vocals to the world, and deeply moved countless people.
Brighter Day (2000)
Kirk Franklin has a wonderful way of energetically and joyously uplifting the Lord. This song epitomizes that ability!
Love Theory (2019)
His 2019 album, “Long Live Love,” led to a historical first. Kirk Franklin is now the only artist to ever top all 5 gospel Billboard charts! This beautiful song was his first single from the album.
Wanna Be Happy (2015)
You ever just feel sick and tired of everything? Of your life, your circumstances, you? Well, this song is what you need to rejuvenate your soul and make the change you need. Wanna be happy? Start with you!
Of course, “Stomp” made the list! It was one of those songs that changed contemporary gospel forever, fusing the traditional genre with hip hop, R&B, and all the flavor of the 1990s. It’s a classic that’s just as uplifting today as it was then.
