Kirk Franklin is “touched by an Angel”
Kirk Franklin recently reminded us why we‘re besotted with him, and it’s not just because of his long string of hits. His big heart and down to earth personality continue to endear him to many, leading us all to believe that he really is just plain ol’ “Uncle Kirk.”
What started out as a regular day trip to the doctor’s, ended with an emotional chance meeting that would reduce the multi award winning artist to tears. 24-year-old amputee, Courtney Fields, is the real life angel who stirred Kirk’s heart.
Courtney’s story is one of courage and unwavering faith amidst the storm. “I recently had an above the knee leg amputation.. I had a blood clot in my lungs and in order to save my life they had to take my leg…this has not been an easy journey …but I trust in the Lord,” she shared with Franklin’s 2.3million Instagram followers..
“I have a daughter her age so it’s really affecting me,” said a choked-up Franklin. In a surprising move bound to convict every A-List gospel artist whilst making all Kirk’s hardcore fans turn green with envy, the artist punched his phone number into Courtney’s phone vowing to help her achieve her dreams.
