UNSUNG: Tasha Cobbs Leonard
Tasha Cobbs Leonard broke into the music scene in 2013 with her LP “Grace.” The project laced with organic and moving tracks featured the lead single, Break Every Chain, which landed as Billboard’s #1 song for a total of 12 weeks. This anthem unleashed liberation to countless audiences nationwide each time it was heard or ministered. The album Grace landed on Billboard’s Top 10 Gospel Albums chart for a year. It was definite that the world had received not just another singer, but a rare gift. From a small town in Georgia, Tasha grew up as a vital part of her church. She began her trial sermon at 11 years old. As she rose to fame, of course came the critics. Tasha is here to tell Unsung about how she never feared the backlash she faced.
UNCENSORED: Kirk Franklin
Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas – Kirk Franklin was raised by his Aunt Gertrude after his mom and dad abandoned him. It was there that he discovered his love for music through the church, as Gertrude made it a priority for him to take piano lessons – a gift passed on from her late husband. Kirk first experienced real success with his choir that he composed and aptly named, The Family. It was when he had the opportunity to work with an up and coming group, God’s Property, that success really took off with the Jimmy Iovine inspired remix to Stomp. Always one to remain true to his testimony, he received backlash once more for vocalizing his addiction to pornography. With the faith and support of his family he remains true to his spiritual journey and to inspire faith through his music and his testimony.
