VIDEO: Torrence’s Talk With Kirk Franklin

This week I finally got the chance to sit down with Kirk Franklin, an artist who is arguably one of the biggest and most influential gospel artists of the 20th and 21st  centuries.  There are only a few artists who’s names automatically equal gospel music to ANYONE you mention them too.  Kirk Franklin definitely falls somewhere on the top of that list, so to finally have him come to and stop by “The Gospel  According To Torrence” was a huge deal for me.

*Churchy voice* “He didn’t have to do it but he did! (Hup!)

Well, Kirk stopped by to talk about his new book “The Blueprint: A Plan for Living Above Life’s Storms.” And let me be honest with you, I’m not a big fan of these “let me give you some advice because I know so much about life” books (especially from some artists) but this one feels different and I’m actually enjoying it and getting a lot out of it. It’s more practical and realistic than I ever thought a book like this would be. But I’ll let Kirk tell you more about it.  We also talked about new music and Sunday Best 3! Watch and tell me what ya think!

Kirk congrats! I just want to say that you let your GODLY light shine on Sunday Best. Their are a lot of people watching christians and some are looking for them to do wrong. You gave encouragement and hope to a lot of the singers. That meant a lot!!! Continue to draw people to God (You are a true blessing). Keep on being the man that God called you to be. You have made me proud of you. Also the Lord is smiling saying WELL DONE MY CHILD!!!

I think producing a book to educate the public regarding improving their cognitive shills as well as their physical skills are essential in today’s society. However, to achieve a high effective level of such would require an empirical analysis of where individuals lack thereof. And, once this has been achieved then its imperative to bring about the axiom in relation to where the individual would then discern the coherent inferences of each chapter allowing to address and apply it. Moreover, to prevent any precarious syntax it is also imperative to propound a dichotomy of intentionality that reveals standards of justice, positive motivational attitude, and prosperity, by way of logical reasoning against the other category that would be the inverse of such examples. These are some of the fundamental scopes of producing a book regarding self-improvement for individuals in today’s society. I hope this was of help and I wish you and your book good lucky in the future. Remember, knowledge is power.

I am very proud of the talent that Mr. Franklin is bringing to the public. We have so many talented people and they deserve the exposure. I do wish to make a comment to Mr. Franklin, as a spriritual Minister of Music to please stop calling the young men ,”dog”, which is demeaning to me as a 66 yr old women of the old school. Please leave this out of your vocabulary.

Hi I just wanted to say that I am a really big fan of the show Sunday’s Best. Also as a fellow minister working in the vineyard for God I thank him for you and the gift that he has bestowed upon you. I think that you are a Courageous person and because your actions speak louder than your words is amazing to me. What are your other plans for the show and when are you having auditions? i would love to get a chance to meet with you and talk to you in the future. Keep doing what your doing for God and may he bless you in all your endevors!!!!

I’ll be purchashing the book, but the cover screams something (NOT IN A GOOD WAY).

Love Kirk’s music, but I’m going to need him to SHUT UP and let his group sing. He has the baddest group of singers in the game.
