RECAP & PICS: King’s Men Tour Philly

On Sunday, October 7, Pam, Kaisha and I from your Morning Church Announcements team was priviliged to attend the King’s Men Tour at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, PA. A large crowd formed outside before the doors were even opened in anticipation of what Kirk Franklin, Donnie McClurkin, Marvin Sapp, and Israel Houghton had in store for the evening!!

The evening began with video premieres from two of the background singers Isaac Carree and Amber Bullock. Isaac Carree’s single “In The Middle of It” and Amber Bullock’s single “Lord You’ve Been so Good” is available on iTunes, go purchase it today and support good music!

The introduction of the King’s Men got the crowd on their feet!! The 4 of them created a video parody of how each of them thinks the show should open, but it was very “Men In Black” inspired. Very dramatic effect that hyped the crowd!! Then Donnie, Marvin, and Israel began singing their own version of Donny Hathaway’s “Someday We’ll All Be Free”. Kirk then appeared amidst the flashing lights singing “Before I Die”, one of his hits off of his latest album “Hello Fear”, a perfect first performance of the night!

Throughout the night all the artists tag-teamed with each other and sang each others greatest hits. Israel did a few of his hits “I Am Not Forgotten” “Rejoice”, then had Marvin join him on stage to sing “Alpha & Omega” and “No Limits”. Pastor McClurkin began his set with “Stand”, a classic hit that has touched the lives of many! Donnie was then joined on stage by Kirk Franklin as he played the piano for  “I Call Faithful” and “Great Is Your Mercy”. Donnie’s sister, Andrea McClurkin-Mellini, was in the audience and Donnie passed the mic to her as she sang a verse on “Great Is Your Mercy”. Marvin Sapp began his set with “Praise Him In Advance” and was also joined on stage by Kirk as he played the piano for him. Kirk Franklin also performed many of his hits in between sets, like “Gimme That”, “Don’t Cry”, and “Hosanna” just to name a few.

The theme of the night was obviously one that exuded unity, confidence, and spirit-lead obedience. These 4 men could pack out any arena on their own and have had very successful solo careers. The fact that they were able to come together to do something that has never been done before speaks volume to the character of these men and their ministries. If you haven’t had the King’s Men experience there’s still time! Wednesday October 10 they’re in Chicago, Friday October 12 they’re in Detroit, and they’re finish out the tour Sunday October 14 in Brooklyn! Go to to get your tickets!! You don’t want to miss this!!
