Publisher's Description

When he fell from a darkened stage in November 1996, Kirk Franklin could easily have been killed. That ten-foot plunge might have ended the career of one of America's most exciting young prodigies. But thanks to his dramatic recovery, the fall added not only a new dimension to his story but it brought Kirk Franklin to the attention of millions who otherwise might never have heard the name.

Today Kirk Franklin is bigger than ever. His recordings have topped the charts, selling more copies in less time than any gospel musician in history. He has won every award gospel music has to offer but his own success is the last thing on his mind.

This is the story of a young man from the poor side of town. He was taunted and teased as a child, but his faith and his remarkable musical talent helped him overcome the odds. In these pages Kirk Franklin reveals the real source of his strength. "What motivates me," he says, "is the knowledge that God has redeemed me from the pain and the hurts and the sin of my past and given me a new joy I can't even explain.

    I loved this book and would highly recommend it. Before reading it, I knew very little about Kirk Franklin's music or his life. I love biographies because they allow you to see the history of a person's life. This one was no different. This young man went through a lot in life, but God was faithful to fulfill His purposes for Him -- even when he could not see it and felt as if God was nowhere around. That let's me know God is doing the same thing in my life. A must read for youth, youth pastors and any Christian who has ever struggled -- and that's all of us. Thank you Mr. Franklin for sharing your story with us. I appreciate your candor, your love for God and the gift of music God has given you.
