The gospel icon made the heartfelt decision to transform this emotional footage into a short documentary.  The 35-minute “Father’s Day: A Kirk Franklin Story” production coincides with the release of his upcoming album of the same title on October 6th.  The moment also provided an opportunity for him to reestablish a connection with his estranged eldest son, Kerrion, who he had not seen in over a decade.
