Grammy-winning gospel musician Kirk Franklin released his new album, The Fight Of My Life, on Tuesday.
The album is Franklin's seventh studio project.
The title of the album sums up the way a lot of people are feeling, according to Franklin.
"A lot of people are trying to stay above water. People are fighting for their peace of mind and to keep their homes from being foreclosed or fighting for their children," the five-time Grammy winner told Reuters. "I want people to know they aren't in it by themselves."
The Fight of My Life is Franklin's second release on his own Fo Yo Soul imprint, which is marketed and distributed via a partnership with Zomba Gospel. A video on the first single of the album, "Declaration (This Is It!)," was released last month on BET. Other songs on the album include "Help Me Believe," "He Will Supply," and "Jesus."
Franklin is also featured on the cover of the December issue of Black Enterprise, having made the magazine's Black Enterprise's Hot 100 List.
