Earlier today (7.6), Maverick City Music x Kirk Franklin joined NBC’s TODAY Show to perform “Kingdom,” a poignant fan-favorite off their collab album, ‘Kingdom Book One,’ out now (6.17).
Additionally, Franklin and Maverick City Music co-founders Tony Brown and Jonathan Jay discussed the movement behind Maverick City Music, how the genre-transcending group continues to pave the path for minority representation in the world of gospel music and beyond, and the process behind the creation of their new music, which took place in a Florida prison and aims to shine a light on the plight of mass incarceration.
Maverick City Music and Franklin are currently headlining arenas on their Kingdom Tour, which has shattered multiple records since the 37-date trek kicked off last month. The tour continues tomorrow in Oklahoma City, OK, before heading to Houston, San Antonio and Fort Worth, TX, this weekend. Fans can purchase tickets to the nearly sold-out trek HERE.
