KIRK FRANKLIN'S MESSAGE TO HIS DAD ON FATHERS' DAY

Kirk Franklin, who, at 4 years old, was adopted by a 64-year-old widow, shares how he feels now without his father.
In a Father’s Day post shared throughout the Grammy Award-winning artist’s social networks, he directed a message to his absent father, saying, “If u know my real dad.. tell him I’m good. The past don't hurt like it used to..don't know where he is, hope he's well.”


Though the pain has subsided and Franklin has excelled in his life, he realizes he w
ould not have fared so well
without the help of
the Lord and God-sent mentors. So, in the same message, he also paid tribute to “all the
men who filled in the gap to help me grow up,” mentioning, “Tony Evans, Bill Collins, Kenneth Ulmer.”


In his book,
The Blueprint, Franklin wrote, "I was told by my own mother that she did not want me, that she had
wanted to abort me. That messed me up real bad! I was confused and hurt by the insecurities of growing up
without my pops."


In his song Let It Go, Featuring Toby Mac, this was his message to his parents:

"To my real mama if you listening, I'm letting it go
To my father I forgive you 'cause you didn't know
That the pain was preparation for my destiny
And one more thing Lord, let my son be a better man than me"
