Kirk Franklin wins Best Gospel/Inspirational award

THE TELEVISED Soul Train Music Awards, which since 1987 have honoured R&B and soul artists, was broadcast in the US on 17th November. The winner of the Best Gospel/Inspirational Award was Kirk Franklin who appeared in the programme alongside gospel star Le'Andria Johnson. On receiving the award Franklin gave a speech asking the audience not to give up on their gifts. He said, ". . .what's inside of you is like grandma's greens. So don't give up, your time is coming." Franklin also presented Yolanda Adams with the fifth annual Lady Of Soul award. Speaking about Franklin's award Phil Thornton, SVP and general manager of RCA Inspiration, said, "he sets the bar very high for himself and other artists and continues to be a leader in our industry. And I'm proud that both he and Le'Andria could be part of this year's Soul Train Awards, whose legacy is so important to our culture." CR
