It has been a big week for the Gospel world and theGrio caught up with Anthony Brown to get his take on Kanye West and Kirk Franklin, two men making major waves.
Brown, whose latest project, 2econd Wind: Ready debuted is currently No. 1 on the Billboard Gospel Albums chart handed Kirk Franklin the trophy for Best Artist at the Dove Awards on October 15.
On Monday, Franklin posted a Facebook video saying he would no longer attend events associated with the Dove Awards, GMA or Trinity Broadcasting Network “until tangible plans are put into place to protect and champion diversity” after portions of his acceptance speech referencing the murder of Atatiana Jefferson were left out of the television broadcast.
“Not only did they edit my speech, they edited the African American experience,” he said.
