Rev. C.L. Franklin
This fiery, Detroit-based preacher has recorded an impressive number of Gospel records, including a release with his daughter Aretha. A member of Dr. Martin Luther King's inner circle, Franklin's riveting, over-the-top delivery on choir-based Traditional Gospel songs reflects the passion and dignity of the civil rights movement. Frequently backed by an army of singers, Rev. Franklin calls out for a deeper commitment to spiritual ideals with a commanding and powerful presence.
