First Kirk Franklin Movie

According to a recent interview with Vibe, Kirk Franklin talked about his Lifetime movie. The Grammy-winning artist will briefly be in the movie. In addition, Franklin wrote and arranged all of the songs in the movie. This will be quite a treat!

Turns out, this was the first opportunity he had to participate in a holiday movie. That is because the writer of the Lifetime movie script wanted a lot of Christmas movie feels. That induces incredible gospel music!

“Well, the creator of the script [had the] idea to include a lot of my Christmas music. So, when I was invited to participate and saw how much it was leaning into the music that I was blessed to write several years ago, it made me excited and I wanted to be more part of the narrative [and] the architecture of the movie. They were very excited to have me be a part; that’s how it turned into Kirk Franklin’s A Gospel Christmas. [I’m] just very honored and very excited about this being my first opportunity to do something like this.”
