Kirk Franklin set to release 12th album in March

BEST SELLING gospel star Kirk Franklin is set to release his 12th album 'Hello Fear' on 22nd March. Read a press release, "He has teamed again with five of the most sought after vocalists in the music industry-Isaac Carree, Anaysha Figueroa, Nikki Ross, Charmaine Swimpson and Eric Moore-to create the inimitable harmonies for which his music is known. The result is a Kirk Franklin masterpiece." The album was produced by Franklin and co-produced by Shaun "Harold" Martin. Two singles have been released simultaneously from the project, "I Smile" is number one Most Added at Gospel Radio and number two Most Added at Urban Adult Contemporary Radio while "I Am" is number two Most Added at Gospel Radio.

Said Franklin about the songs, "'I Smile' is a declarative statement that I'm not going to live my life based on how I feel. I will live my life based on God's Word. It is not easy and I acknowledge there are always obstacles, but like a lot of folks, I get tired of being guided by my emotions. When I have a deeper trust in God, I live my life in stability. 'I Am' is about exchanging all of my weaknesses for God's strength. This song is also about declaring what God says about me and not my situation. As we daily transform to God's image, we no longer identify with who we were, but who we are becoming." CR
