i knew this was going to happen.
I knew that people were going to be trippin' over this video! First off, people have been complaining that Kirk is more "funky" than "praising". Who are you to say that he can't be lifting his God up with R&B tracks and hiphop beats? Secondly, to the guy who said Kirk exposed too much: I'll give you that women might be thinking about Kirk's body (I'm not!), but think about it. How many professional boxers and wrestlers wear shirts to their matches? Not many. Be real. Thirdly, the girl he kisses in the video after he wins the fight is his WIFE. Don't go around saying that Kirk Franklin kisses some random girl. It's his wife Tammy (or something like that.) So please leave Kirk alone and I hope that he's not too discouraged by your judgemental attitude. Kirk, you rock! In an age where R&B and hiphop is drawing people to bad music, you are drawing people to GOD! Keep up the good work!
I think that Kirk Franklin did marvelous things with this song. I love the whole remix/mix-in thing he did with "This Is It". The message that comes across is amazing. THIS IS IT, CHRISTIANS! We don't have to live afraid anymore. No anxieties if we have the Lord!! The sooner we realize this, the better. Regardless of half-nakedness, this is one of the greatest videos in Christian music. I adore the analogy, and I don't think it would have been as realisitc if Kirk had a shirt on... If he had a big flabby body, people may have said that he should've had a shirt on, but it would've been for a completely different reason. Point is, it's a good video, and I think it would've been a blatant display of vanity if he HAD kept his shirt on. GREAT VIDEO. BUY IT IF POSSIBLE!
This is an awesome music video - Christian music needs professionals to do a professional job, and in a day when most Christian music videos are lame and low budget, this one is very well done! Kirk is always pushing the boundaries striving to reach a generation that is not being reached. Do I approve of his lack of modesty? No. Do I approve of the heart in which he did it? Absolutely.
