UNCENSORED: Sued By ‘The Family’? How Kirk Franklin Ended Up In Court After The Success Of 'God's Property'
You might be surprised that Kirk Franklin ended up in court and it had everything to do with his powerhouse group that started it all.
Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas – Kirk Franklin was raised by his aunt Gertrude after his mom and dad abandoned him. It was there that he discovered his love for music through the church, as Gertrude made it a priority for him to take piano lessons – a gift passed on from her late husband. Kirk first experienced real success with his choir that he composed and aptly named, The Family. It was when he had the opportunity to work with an up and coming group, God’s Property, that success really took off with the Jimmy Iovine inspired remix to Stomp. Always one to remain true to his testimony, he received backlash once more for vocalizing his addiction to pornography. With the faith and support of his family he remains true to his spiritual journey and to inspire faith through his music and his testimony.
