Kirk Franklin: When I Get There

Kirk FranklinCover of Kirk Franklin I recently wrote an article Triplets Vs Eighth Notes

 I immediately thought of one particular song that uses lots of eighth notes, well and for sure sixteenth notes. Are you familiar with "When I Get There" by Kirk Franklin? It's a great upbeat song.
