Season 7 “Sunday Best” winner Geoffrey Golden is kicking his gospel music career off in high gear.

Signed to Kirk Franklin’s Fo Yo Soul/RCA imprint, the 19-year-old artist’s new album, Kingdom…LIVE!  has debuted at No. 4 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart.

Blessed to glean from the wisdom of Franklin, Golden toldBlackGospel.com “Kirk understands the significance of bringing up the next generation of gospel artists. He is always concerned about giving somebody else an opportunity to make it.”

Golden continued, “He was just talking to me, and he just kind of told me, ‘Geoff, you need to savor this moment because they could be shouting your name one day and the next day you have nobody to call. You have to make sure that you put all your faith in God. Work for His glory, and not the glory of the people.’”

While enjoying his newfound celebrity, Golden remains grounded and grateful, and realizes, “I need to treasure everything I have.”
