Imagine Me

  • Kirk Franklin tells us that this cathartic, introspective song has a great deal of personal meaning for him, and he singles it out as one he loves to perform live. Said Franklin: "There's this one song that for some reason it never gets tiring. It's a song called 'Imagine Me.' And that's a song that never really gets really tired of me performing. It's like I never get tired of doing it. Maybe it's just because the personal-ness of the lyrics, and what it's saying, what it's communicating and what it means to me. That becomes very important to me. And so that has a very strong place in my life." (Here's our full interview with Kirk Franklin.)
