Why We Sing

Album: Why We Sing (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • This was originally the opening track on gospel artist Kirk Franklin's 1993 debut album Kirk Franklin & The Family.
  • Warwick explained to Christian Music Today why she decided to make this Kirk Franklin song the title track of her album: "I love that song. As a matter of fact, I call it my personal testimony whenever I do it in my performances, and I'm sure Kirk views it as his testimony too. There's no other reason that we have [to sing and perform] aside from the big guy in the sky!"
