Kirk Franklin, Hillsong United Win Big At 2016 Billboard Music Awards, Lauren Daigle Not Left Out.

Reported by Reagan W.S

When Gospel artist, song writer, choir director and producer Kirk Franklin announced the release of his current Losing My religion project last year after nearly five years of his personal music silence many anticipated a good album but maybe not what they all have been treated to. Kirk’s 12th album has ever since it’s release in November 2015 blown away his audience with songs likes the  Grammy Award winning and chart topping “wanna be happy”, road trip, 123 victory and a spoken word piece that has been quoted by many. This may be another of his  greatest projects as it earned him 3 awards at last nights Billboard Music awards. Kirk emerged the lone winner in all the 3 gospel categories alongside other winners Hillsong United and Lauren Diagle in the Christian category.
