Kirk Franklin is more excited for his artists’ recent Stellar Award nominations than for his own first award.

Franklin, 44, began Fo Yo Soul Recordings as a joint venture with RCA Records. After only one full year of being active, the Dallas, Texas-based inspirational music label, has garnered 12 Stellar Award nominations recently. Franklin’s singing group The Walls Group received Seven Nominations while former “Sunday Best” Winner Tasha Page-Lockhart received three nominations on his label.

Although he is busy being the CEO of the record label, Franklin received three Stellar Award nominations of his own in the Prestigious Producer of the Year category. Franklin has received 15 Stellar Awards throughout his career but has a newfound appreciation for the nominations that the artists on his label have received.

“Having my artists, The Walls Group and Tasha Page-Lockhart, blessed to receive so many Stellar nominations is more exciting to me than the feeling I had at my first nomination,” Franklin said in a statement obtained by The Christian Post. “It’s incredible to see God being so kind to the next generation.”
