The Music Experience with host " Dedry Jones
featuring the remarkable Kirk Franklin
"Hello Fear" (Fo Yo Soul Entertainment/Verity Records)
Hello Fear" bows at No. 1 this week on Billboard's Top Gospel Albums
and No. 5 on the Billboard 200, selling 87,000, according to Nielsen
SoundScan. Since making his first appearance on Top Gospel Albums in
1993 with "Kirk Franklin and the Family," Franklin has watched all 10
of his albums peak at No. 1.
Produced by Franklin and Shaun Martin, "Hello Fear" features several
special guests. Beverly Crawford and Marvin Sapp grace "The Altar,"
while Rance Allen, John P. Kee and Marvin Winans join forces on
"Something About the Name Jesus Pt. 2." Explaining the album's overall
theme, Franklin says, "People are dealing with a lot of stuff: money,
gas, war, terrorism and natural disasters. There's a great sense of
anxiety that's a cloud over everything right now. I thought it would
be a good time to address that in people's lives and in my own life.
As soon as I wrote those first few lines of 'Hello Fear,'
I knew that had to be the title."
