He’s the man behind some of gospel’s most progressive music, but you might be shocked to learn what this Grammy Award winner listens to in his car.

During a recent interview with Kirk Franklin to talk about his latest album, Losing My Religion, Franklin revealed to us exclusively that he is a big fan of  Kendrick Lamar, Adele, Justin Bieber and … Taylor Swift. “I think she is an incredible song writer,” he said of Swift.
