“A God Like You,” from Kirk Franklin (Fo Yo Soul/RCA), is featured in the new “Becoming” documentary, just released globally on Netflix. The strains of Franklin’s energetic track is featured in the documentary’s opening moments, which follows the former First Lady Michelle Obama on her book tour. “A God Like You” is from Franklin’s GRAMMY-winning hit album Hello Fear, released in 2011 by Verity Records.
The song’s appearance in the film was a complete surprise experience for Franklin himself, whose shocked reaction was captured on video in a sweet family moment with his wife Tammy and posted by their daughter Kennedy, as he watched the documentary for the first time.
This is a moment I never get to see – an artist reacting to my edit of their music. I spent a LOT of time working on re-edits of this song to find the moments that landed just the way that Nadia wanted. @kirkfranklin it’s the perfect song for this. Brought me to tears again. https://t.co/52EhlvNrwN
