“LIFT EVERY VOICE!”
By: Stacy King Chaney/ Gospel Editor
“Everything that glitters, is not gold.” It is a saying that expresses the sentiment that just because it looks like gold, does not mean that it is golden. As it would appear, with the 50th Celebration of the Dove Music Awards. Behind the scenes, there was much worship and praise rendered to God and no one dare stop it. However, out front “mic” & center, there was the editing of Dove Award Acceptance Speeches. As it was for the anointed, gifted Gospel Artist, Kirk Franklin. Kirk Franklin was edited, once again. It would appear that Kirk Franklin’s attempt to lift his voice for that which is just and righteous did not make the cutting room floor. Unfortunately the golden years of the Dove Awards has begun to tarnish, as the voice of the incomparable Kirk Franklin tried to lift his voice and SPEAK. I will leave it, right there.
