Dallas, TX (August 28, 2015) – It’s been four years since GRAMMY® winning recording artist, songwriter and  super producer, Kirk Franklin, released his own music and now he’s back  with a new single and question, “Wanna Be Happy?” The heartfelt new offering was released today on all digital music providers and made its radio debut on the nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Show.  “Wanna Be Happy?” is the first single from Franklin’s forthcoming eleventh album scheduled to be released in November on Fo Yo Soul Recordings / RCA Records.   

Kirk, who has penned and produced songs for fellow artists including Gladys Knight, Tamela Mann, Jill Scott and Stevie Wonder, has been busy cultivating the talent on his new record label, Fo Yo Soul Recordings , executive producing his own channel, Kirk Franklin’s Praise, on SiriusXM and hosting BET’s  gospel singing competition, Sunday Best.  Now the nine-time GRAMMY® Award winner, returns to the artist spotlight and is excited about his new body of work. Kirk explains the inspiration for the new single:  “Every human being was wired with the desire for happiness. And we will try different things all in the pursuit of that feeling. With this song I’m saying if you really want to be happy, you have to start with the originator. My goal is to try to lead people to the manufacturer of their souls.”

Stress kills. It’s a known fact. Some people cope with stress by overeating or eating unhealthy foods,smoking, drinking and other activities that raise their risk for heart attack, stroke and high blood pressure. We should turn to scripture when we feel out of sorts. Jesus was always a proponent of living a stress free life. Here are three beautiful quotes to refkect on when life burdens you.
Deuteronomy 31:8   It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.

John 16.33  I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.

John 14.27   Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Philippians 4:6,7.    Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Remember you can’t control all the outside events in your life, but you can change how you handle them emotionally and psychologically. Try to learn to accept things you can’t change. You don’t have to solve all of life’s problems.
