“Wow. Thank you,” the singer said. “Gospel music has so many incredible talents and I’m so humbled to be in that category with some of the greatest to ever do it.”
Franklin thanked his wife, the mother of his children, and took the moment to send prayers to Kobe Bryant’s family.
Franklin beat out fellow nominees Gloria Gaynor featuring Yolanda Adams (“Talkin’ About Jesus”), Travis Greene featuring Jekalyn Carr (“See The Light”), Koryn Hawthorne featuring Natalie Grant (“Speak The Name”) and Tasha Cobbs Leonard (“This Is A Move (Live)”). hKirk Franklin Wins Best Gospel Performance/Song | 2020 GRAMMYs
