Maverick City Music and Kirk Franklin accept the top gospel Album Award for their album Kingdom Book One at the 2023 Billboard Music Awards Presented by Marriott Bonvoy.
Hey, Billboard Awards. We are here in Madison, Wis., and we are so grateful for this award. Honestly, we’re just floored every time that God chooses to do something like this, so we want to thank Jesus. We want to thank our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We want to thank every single person who has supported us, from the least to the greatest, and everyone who listens to the music, we pray that we continue to write songs that bless you all. Thank you so much for honoring us with this, and we just love you. Thank you.
Man, I want to tell you how grateful I am to be a recipient of this man, this incredible award from Billboard. Thank you so much. Man, I’m so grateful to have a chance to still do music after all these years and still reach people. I appreciate RCA for your soul team, Ron Hill, management, musicians, singers. I mean, I’m just grateful. I’m totally grateful. And I just pray, man, that I can keep telling people, man, that no matter how far they go, they can always come back home. God bless y’all. Thank you!
