Two of award-winning gospel singer Kirk Franklin’s four grown children, Kennedy and Caziah, recently shared a snap of them in Atlanta, enjoying bonding time as siblings.

There is something special about a brother-sister relationship despite occasional misunderstandings. Kennedy and Caziah, the children of acclaimed gospel singer Kirk Franklin and wife Tammy Collins, are nothing but sweet siblings. 

On Instagram, 23-year-old Kennedy shared a sweet snap of herself with her 20-year-old brother showing affection for one another, and fans could not handle the siblings’ cuteness.

Enjoying a sunny day in Atlanta, Caziah went up to Kennedy to give the latter a warm embrace. With her brother’s sweet gesture, Kennedy reciprocated.

They looked happy with each other’s company. They also appeared to share the same interest in streetwear. Caziah wore gray sweatpants and a sweatshirt, which he topped with a dark blue hat. 

Kennedy, who pushed her hair on the side, donned an LSU-printed purple shirt and a pair of denim shorts. She completed her look with a cute black purse and minimal accessories. 


Aside from the sweet sibling moment, many fans noticed that Caziah and Kennedy had equally-stunning shoes. They guessed that the duo were great sneaker fans.

One fan expressed admiration for Kennedy and Caziah’s sweet bond, while others left heart emojis in the comment section. Franklin, who saw his daughter’s post, could not help but adore them both. He wrote:

"MY BABIES??????????????❤️???? (sic)"



In a recent interview on the Oprah Winfrey Network, Franklin reflected on his role as a Black father. He said he makes sure his children get the "baton" and understand the price of not dropping it.

As Caziah returned to college for his sophomore year, Franklin, whose father passed away in 2018,  is excited for his son carving his own path. He added, "because how he flies is my report card as a father."

Franklin and Collins have been married for 24 years, a rare feat in the entertainment industry. 


Aside from Caziah and Kennedy, Franklin and Collins are parents to 31-year-old Carrington, their adopted daughter, who now has a family of her own. She has been married to Maxx Nakwaasah.


The gospel singer also has a son named Kerrion, from a past relationship. However, his relationship with his eldest son is strained as the latter has been estranged from him for a long time.

Two years ago, his distant son accused him on social media that the gospel legend tried to kill him. However, he deleted his post then went offline.

Apart from Franklin being a legendary gospel singer, he is also a loving husband to Collins. They are one of the celebrity couples whose love seems perpetual.

Franklin and Collins have been married for 24 years, a rare feat in the entertainment industry. On how they have stayed strong together, Franklin leans on creativity to keep their love alive through the years.
