*It’s finally here! Kirk Franklin’s latest album “Hello Fear” is out.

The choir director and songwriter has been busy lately, rehearsing for his tour with Steve Harvey, shooting a movie and music video and promoting his best selling book “The Blueprint.” Yep, all that while taping audition segments for BET’s “Sunday’s Best” touring the country visiting churches.

In addition to his big busy March, Kirk performed on the Monique Show two cuts from “Hello Fear.” He sat down with the nighttime queen of TV to talk about his book and life, awards, and so much more.
