During the 2019 BET Awards last night, people on Twitter were calling Kirk Franklin the DJ Khaled of gospel music, and now we can’t get that out of our heads.
Franklin took the BET Awards audience to church Sunday night (Jun. 23) in Los Angeles and was joined by fellow Sunday’s Best judges Erica Campbell, Jonathan McReynolds and Kelly Price for a performance of his latest single “Love Theory.”
But yeah … back to that Kirk Franklin is gospel music’s DJ Khaled thing. Hilarious observation, right?
DJ Khaled is Kirk Franklin's musical tether

Of course, Kirk Franklin’s been going strong in the game waaaaayyy longer than DJ Khaled, so maybe we should be saying that DJ Khaled is Hip-Hop’s Kirk Franklin?
