American gospel singer and song writer, Krik Dwayne Franklin was born on the 26th of January 1970 and was raised by his aunt after his mother abandoned him. Franklin has won multiple music awards including 12 Grammy Awards.

Today he shares his story of how he found his biological father.

  Two days ago, I received an anonymous call that my biological father, who I never knew, has 3-6 months to live. I’ve lived my entire life hating this man.

He and my biological mother gave me up for adoption, and it left me never feeling good this very day. I took my hate for him and used it as fuel to be the best father I could be for my own.

But what I did wrong, is I never took that fuel, and turn it into forgiveness....and that is wrong. Wrong for him, me, and the God I proclaim to represent. How can I preach what I don’t practice. So I flew to Houston yesterday to do that.

It’s painful, it’s a process, but how disappointed I would be in myself for this man to leave this earth without being forgiven. He deserves to receive what God gives me everyday. Pray for him, and for me. God this is hard... I weep as I write.
