Franklin will also encourage concert attendees to either continue or become regular Bible readers. “I’ve found the process of reading the Bible and writing a song is life-changing, and I’m always eager to share the inspiration behind my music,” Franklin said. The Bible is My Guide Project was also adopted my New York Yankees reliever Mariano Rivera in 2007. It also touts use by Spanish language recording artists Rojo and Juan Luis Guerra. Former Yankee outfielder Bernie Williams is also part of the project. Franklin is a seven-time Grammy winner at hosts BET’s Sunday Best on the Black Entertainment Television cable network.
