Souls will be stirred and spirits lifted as Grammy-winning gospel superstar Kirk Franklin and R&B powerhouse Ledisi bring their soaring vocals to Oakland's Paramount Theatre as part of the "The Rebel, The Soul & The Saint Tour". Credited for helping bring gospel to the mainstream, Franklin is a 10-time Grammy winner whose faith-based music and dashing demeanor unites audiences across the genres of hip-hop, pop and R&B. The multi-platinum-selling artist is the host of BET's "Sunday Best" show, and he recently collaborated with Kanye West on the rap maestro's "The Life of Pablo". Jazz and R&B artist Ledisi has been making critically acclaimed, Grammy-nominated recordings for years ("The Truth, Pieces of Me"), but she made her biggest waves in 2014 with her stirring performance as the gospel legend Mahalia Jackson in the Oscar-nominated film "Selma". Her rendition of "Take My Hand, Precious Lord" on the movie's soundtrack proves that she's one of the most soulful singers working today. The two will cook up an amazing show that's sure to touch your heart, body and soul. You'll hear fan favorites, as well as songs from Franklin's most recent release "Losing My Religion" and Ledisi's newest album "Let Love Rule". R&B singer-songwriter -- and former Maroon 5 member -- PJ Morton opens up the night. This is one concert that's sure to have you feeling #blessed.
