Kirk Franklin is loved world wide for his uplifting gospel music and his energetic performances.
Behind the scenes he is a doting father and husband.
The 48-year-old has not had it easy after his parents gave him up for adoption, and only months ago he forgave his father after a long time.
Speaking about it he wrote
Two days ago, I received an anonymous call that my biological father, who I never knew, has 3-6 months to live. I’ve lived my entire life hating this man. He and my biological mother gave me up for adoption, and it left me never feeling good enough….to this very day. I took my hate for him and used it as fuel to be the best father I could be for my own.
Growing up without his biological parents has not dampened his spirit and he has done his best to be the best dad he can to his four kids.
His children are Caziah Franklin, Kennedy Franklin, Kerrion Franklin and Carrington Franklin.
