On Sunday, Kirk Franklin gave away Visa gift cards worth fifty dollars to holiday shoppers at a Bowie, Maryland Walmart.
As Mr. Franklin was walking in, a female fan asked the Sunday Best host did he shop at Walmart? … And Kirk being his funny self replied,” yes, I shop at Walmart, what you mean?”
While in town for Evangel Cathedral’s annual Christmas Celebration, Kirk’s original plan was to purchase and distribute copies of his latest CD, Losing My Religion and also buy gifts, and groceries.
After discovering the CD’s were not in stock, he altered his plans and gave away gift cards.
“Excuse me, ladies and gentleman, y’all might not want to leave. I got a blessing for a lot of people and I feel like being in the giving mood,” said Kirk on a megaphone.
“I feel like blessing some people this holiday season, so if you are in line and if you’re about to spend some money, you’re about to get a little bit of a blessing, because I feel like blessing some folk,” he announced.
When it was over Kirk thanked everyone:
“Before I leave, let me say, thank y’all for the opportunity to put a smile on your faces,” said Franklin, flanked by fans and holiday shoppers.
