New Music - Bless Me | Maverick City Music x Kirk Franklin
Updated: Aug 25, 2022
Bless me serves as the second single, lifted from Maverick City Music’s upcoming collaboration album with Kirk Franklin entitled “Kingdom Book One” which was recorded with the inmates at the Everglades Correctional Institution in Miami-Dade, Florida in early March of 2022.
"The heart behind this project is to not only expand the idea of what the Kingdom of God looks like, but to also share and spread music and a message that taps into an inspirational and unfiltered love for all people"
“Bless me, bless me, Bless me God indeed / Death has been defeated, He is our victory / Bless me, bless me, God not just for me / But so everyone around me can have everything they need / Let all these folks that’s with me God have everything they need.”
Bless Me was written by Kirk Franklin and Maverick City Music recently received their first BET Awards nomination – the Dr. Bobby Jones Gospel/Inspiration Award for their song "Jireh." Five-time BET Award winner Franklin is also nominated for his song "We Win" in this same category. The group and Franklin are set to perform on the upcoming BET Awards show, as well as part of NPR Tiny Desk's Black Music Month (6.24).
In other news, Kirk Franklin visited the breakfast Club. The icon stopped by where he spoke about his love for Maverick City Music Group, his relationship status with his son, R.Kelly and more.
It's been over a year since Kirk Franklin's son, Kerrion shared the audio of his tough exchange with his father.
"We historically have tried to keep our journey with our son and his state a private family matter," Franklin explained. "I love my son and we've been here for many, many, many years and I've done everything that I could to try and help him for many, many many years. My son is a very talented, beautiful soul and the way that he was wired is not necessarily his fault. Some of us are born with very unique wiring and a lot of times in our community it is hard for us to acknowledge certain wiring. We want to think it's something else."
