Kirk Franklin Talks Kanye, TLOP Song Backlash
A lot of Christians are mad that Kirk Franklin recorded a song with Kanye West for his new album The Life of Pablo. So what does Franklin think? HipHollywood caught up with the award winning producer/singer at the Grammy Awards, and he told us he’s just trying to be a light.
“You know my job on earth is just to be a light,” said Franklin who is featured on the song ‘Ultra Light Beams’. “As a Christian I’m trying to be what God wants me to be to who ever, and nobody is beyond receiving Him. Nobodies unforgivable, or unredeemable.”
West has called his latest work a “gospel album” and Franklin, along with Kelly Price and the Dream performed with him on SNL over the weekend. Franklin told us as far as the album, he participated on just one song, and his message is quite clear.
“He asked me to be apart of this one song and it’s very clear what I represent. No profanity, or something that is outside of my faith or what I preach. I’m just here to walk out life with people, and who ever. I’m not a pastor to the stars, I ain’t trying to be all that, My job is to just win people to God.”
