Kirk Franklin Leads All-Star RehearsalMonday, February 22, 1999
Even with the tons of top stars at the Shrine Auditorium onMonday, the all-star line-up rehearsing on stage with KirkFranklin at noon PST was impressive.
Franklin arrived to rehearse "Lean on Me" along with U2’sBono, Crystal Lewis and the Family. The staging is spectacular,and the broadcast performance — which is scheduled toinclude Mary J. Blige, Seal and Stevie Wonder — promisesto be one a highlight of Wednesday night’s GRAMMYprogram. The Shrine’s acoustics are awesome, and it was prettydarn thrilling to hear Bono’s distinctive vocals soaring to thevaulted ceiling, and the Nu Nation and the Family’s stirringgospel harmonies and solos.
"Lean on Me," which is nominated for Song of the Year,raised $250,000 to help re-build black churches destroyedby arson.
