He's a contemporary Gospel singer. I believe Bono sang with him on a song a while back.

he's a gospel singer. bono appeared in a franklin song that wasn't all that bad actually a few years ago. if franklin is gonna be on with them they must be playing 'stuck' 'cause i don't really a space for him within 'walk on', unless they butcher it.

i think there's space for franklin at the end, with all the "hallelujahs"... we'll see, though! (atU2 is reporting that U2 will be doing Walk On w/ franklin, but stuck could work, too.)

Okay, that was the end of my cheesy moment of the day.

Bono sang on Kirk Franklin's, 'The Nu Nation Project' released in 1998, on the song "Lean On Me".
