Africa — Courtesy to TBR — The hour has come. The auditorium is dark. Kirk Franklin has finally arrived in the Motherland. The crowd chants from the gallery high up the auditorium!  “We want Kirk! We want Kirk! The crowd is now on their chairs still chanting.

Kirk is finally on stage with such power, wearing a white T-shirt and he’s ready to do 20 years of gospel music in one night. Starting with “Lovely Day” Kirk is just warming up as starts to sing along. Kirk then announces that a V.I. P. is in the building. His name is Jesus!

Kirk then starts interacting with the crow and relates a story about how God makes lemonade out of lemons. He sings ‘I Know that I can Make it’ and when he transitions into singing ‘Imagine Me’ everyone is ready to sing along.

He assures the audience that no matter what life brings up, ‘there is something about the name Jesus’ that still gives us hope for ‘a brighter day’. He adds Michael Jackson’s ‘We are the world’ and the sing along continues.

People are standing on chairs listen to him minister, the tempo lowers as he speaks. Everybody hangs on to his every word. And audience trade out shouts after shout with him.

He performs many more songs and finishes with a ‘God like you’
