Lecrae Follows Kirk Franklin’s Lead with Boycott of GMA Dove Awards

Lecrae followed in the footsteps of Kirk Franklin and took to social media to genuinely explain why he can no longer support the GMA Dove Awards. He did let it be known that he’s not just jumping on a bandwagon or riding the wave, and wishes he didn’t have to do this.

The rapper also stated, “Artists that I know, love and care about, have had performances where areas of injustice that were displayed were edited out.” Lecrae mentioned he and Kirk Franklin have spoken offline about these issues and he stands in support of his brother wholeheartedly. He believes we can and should do better and is hoping we will do better.

More and more artists are standing in support of Kirk Franklin and his stance on the GMA Dove Awards. It’s evident the GMA committee is being asked to have some open dialogue about reconciling the past disappointments of the African American experience while collectively setting the foundation to avoid these issues in the future.
