The Blood Song: Kirk Franklin

The Rebirth of Kirk Franklin

I am a huge fan of Kirk Franklin and you'll notice that I have organized some of his songs in alphabetical order to the right of this post on the side bar. This particular song, The Blood Song performed by Crystal Lewis, Jaci Velasquez, Donnie McClurkin with Kirk Franklin, was written in 2002. It's written in the Key of Eb, played freely with 4/4 time signature.

I was fortunate to be on the same stage with the Praise Band when Crystal Lewis performed at New Venture Christian Fellowship in Oceanside, California. She's a beautiful person with a warm personality and a fantastic, dynamic singer.  I have been in a Gospel Choir before and LOVE Gospel music!

I'm also a huge fan of Jaci Velasquez. Here I am playing her song, Imagine Me Without You.

Are you familiar with The Blood Song? Here is a clip from YouTube:
