Multi Grammy and Platinum Gospel Artist Kirk Franklin will perform at the recently opened Miramar Regional Park Amphitheater on Saturday, October 7 starting at 7 p.m. at the Gospel in the Son Music Fest. Known for his repertoire of hit contemporary gospel songs with a fusion of R&B, hip hop and reggae, Franklin will be center stage with support performances by gospel artists Bishop William Murphy III, of Dream City Church of Atlanta; Apostle Papa San, of Our Fathers KINGDOM Church; local Miramar singer, Carl Scott; and Pastor Trevor R. Wallace, of Jesus Team Ministries of Lauderhill.
Kirk Franklin’s international fame is merited by his ability to unite diverse audiences across the world from traditional gospel to non-traditional gospel enthusiasts. His loyal followers have graced him with the industry record for the most Gospel records sold and the longest gospel song on the Billboard Gospel and Christian Charts, crossing over to the Top 10 R&B and Hip Hop charts. In addition, he has received over Ten GRAMMY® Awards, 39 Stellar Awards, 16 Dove Awards (CCM), eight NAACP Image Awards, two BET Awards, an American Music Award, a Soul Train Award and numerous others. Some of his most notable hits include “I Smile”, “Stomp” and “Brighter Day.” He is known for his high-spirited performances that capture and enthrall audiences to spontaneously sing along and dance. Franklin will be accompanied by his choir he affectionately named “Family.” Bishop William Murphy III, known for his mega hit “Praise is What I Do,” is slated as one of the main opening performances for the Music Fest.
Gospel in the Son Music Fest has been a major gospel festival since 2010 and has highlighted prominent performances such as Fred Hammond, Tye Tribbet and Carlene Davis to name a few. The music fest is a collaboration of Jesus Team Ministries and SFL Caribbean TV. “We are honored and humbled to present top-notch gospel entertainment to the community at the beautiful new City of Miramar’s Amphitheater. It’s our mission to touch souls and transform lives, and this is one way we can reach a broad spectrum of people through their love for the word, gospel music and Kirk Franklin’s performance. He has proven to be one of the best gospel performers and loved by many,” said Trevor R. Wallace, pastor of Jesus Team Ministries. There are plans to add more local choirs and performances to the lineup, according to Colin Forbes, show organizer and principal at Class Act Production & Promotion Inc, SFL CaribbeanTV and director of ministry for Gospel in the Son Music Fest.
