International Grammy winning gospel artist Kirk Franklin is set to release a new contemporary gospel album called “ Losing my Religion” this Friday!
Known as a gospel music pioneer, Franklin boldly adds hip hop, R&B, funk or pop into his gospel music and after a five year absence, he will finally release his 11th album.
The 13 track album is already creating a buzz in the gospel industry and when asked about the title he explained that “religion gives people a list of things to do, to be and to try to accomplish to save one’s self, instead of realizing that it’s Christ who saves us.”
“What religion has done is thrown so many rules, so many laws, and so many other things at people that people are drowning and have become frustrated. My job on ‘Losing My Religion’ is to show that God wants you to receive salvation, and religion doesn’t have anything to do with it.”
