Kirk Franklin Fearless Tour Dates

Kirk Franklin’s nationwide “Fearless Tour” will visit fifteen states in four weeks. Special Guests will include Isaac Carree, BET Sunday Best Winner Amber Bullock and Verity Recording Artists Deon Kipping and Jason Nelson. The Fearless Tour will be sponsored in part by The American Heart Association.
The tour starts November 1, 2011 (see full listing of tour dates and cities below). Franklin will be touring in support of his 12th and latest CD, Hello Fear which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Gospel sales chart and #5 on the Billboard Top-200. His single, “I Smile”, spent 23 weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Gospel Songs chart.
Franklin is especially passionate about performing songs from the Hello Fear project, as the specific message of facing our deep fears in this current economic situation and times of uncertainty in this life, have a deeper impact than ever before. His own life experiences, revelations and lessons learned bring him new motivation and inspiration to let these messages be heard.
Franklin is once again partnering with the American Heart Association’s “Power to End Stroke” campaign to increase awareness and to educate the African American community about their risk of stroke — the third leading cause of death of all Americans and a leading cause of long-term disability among African Americans. Franklin will use his voice to help his fans understand that stroke is largely preventable by watching your diet, getting regular exercise and not smoking. He will also share the importance of knowing your individual risk factors, such as family history, high blood pressure or diabetes, as well as working with health care providers to manage risk.
“I have learned so much. I want to take those lessons as well as my own experiences as a man who grew up with one foot in the church and one foot in the streets, and use that to connect with this generation.” Franklin aims to share these lessons with young, urban audiences while on the Fearless Tour.
