Kirk Franklin has made a big announcement and is standing up for what he believes in.
The Grammy award-winning artist has announced that he is boycotting all events affiliated with/for the Dove Awards, Gospel Music Association and TBN. This comes after significant parts of Franklin's acceptance speech at the Dove Awards that had to do with racial injustices and more were edited out 2 years in a row.
Franklin is wanting reconciliation, but also for the Dove Awards, Gospel Music Association and TBN to take accountability for what they did.
We encourage you to watch the clip below to hear Franklin's full story about the situation and why he is boycotting . It is also important to note that Franklin says he did not make the video to ask anyone in the gospel industry to join him in the boycott.
