*Nashville, TN – RCA Inspiration celebrates two nominations for the 2018 Soul Train Awards, with gospel icon Kirk Franklin (Fo Yo Soul/RCA) and hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg (All The Time Entertainment/RCA Inspiration) getting nominated in the category of Best Gospel/Inspirational Award.
Kirk Franklin and Snoop Dogg are both previous Soul Train Award winners, while this marks the first nomination in the Gospel/Inspirational category for Snoop Dogg, who released his first gospel project, Snoop Dogg Presents Bible of Love, earlier this year. The 2018 Soul Train Awards will be taped on Saturday, November 17, 2018 in Las Vegas, and air on Sunday, November 25, 2018 on BET and BET HER at 8 pm ET.
The two prolific hit makers even first met backstage at the Soul Train Awards in the ‘90s early in their careers, recounting their first meeting – and sharing stories about their upbringing in church, the influences of gospel and hip-hop, discussing collaborating on music some twenty years ago, God’s grace, faith, spirituality, and more – in a fresh in-depth conversation series between Snoop and Kirk called From Gangster To Gospel To Redemption. A three-part series, the first two episodes recently premiered on BET.com, with all three episodes available to watch now on YouTube.
