"Hello Fear" - Kirk Franklin

Kirk Franklin.

When it comes to Kirk Franklin, most of us fall into one of two categories: 1) the people who say "I already know all of Kirk Franklin's Music," and 2) the people who say "Why would I listen to Kirk Franklin?"  Normally, that would make it hard to feature any of his music, because you either already know it, or you have no interest in listening to it, until today . . .

The song "Hello Fear," the title track from Kirk Franklin's 2011 album, is a song that appeals to every listener through it's varied instrumentation, easy vocals, and topical relevance.  In other words, everyone can find a reason to like this song.

"Hello Fear"deals with something we've almost all experienced, and that's . . . well . . . fear.  We've almost all had something in life that we've been afraid to do, whether it's coming to Christ in the first place, leaving our past behind, or following Him when He leads us to do something we've never done before.  The beautiful thing is that God's perfect love has cast out fear, and "Hello Fear" captures that point as both a break-up song with fear and as a make-up song with grace.  Amazing.

You can check out "Hello Fear" below, and as always, stay tuned for more great finds on Christian Music Discovery, the place for good Christian Music.
