Gospel Music Icon Kirk Franklin to Bring the 'Long Live Love Tour' to Soundstage at Graceland

Music legend Kirk Franklin will bring his iconic contemporary gospel sound to Graceland Live on July 20, 2019 as part of his Long Live Love Tour. The tour follows the announcement of Franklin as host of the upcoming 34th Annual Stellar Awards and the May 2019 release of his thirteenth studio album, "Long Live Love."

For more than 25 years, Franklin’s high energy, powerful music has been consistently found at the top of Gospel and Christian charts. The debut of Kirk Franklin & The Family in the early ‘90s forever changed the look and sound of gospel music forever, and Franklin continues to bridge the gap between gospel, hip-hop, pop and R&B. His genre-bending music and collaborations with a diverse array of artists have earned him numerous accolades, including 13 GRAMMY wins and 23 nominations, 43 Stellar Awards, nine NAACP Image Awards, four Billboard Music Awards, three BET Awards and an American Music Award, among other honors.
