Hip-Hop & Gospel Collaboration: Kirk Franklin Joins Chance The Rapper On Stage [VIDEO]

Share Mainstream artist Chance The Rapper headlined the 2015 Pitchfork Music Festival this weekend in Chicago’s Union Park.

One of the most talked about performances was “Sunday Candy,” because the lyricist welcomed multi-platinum selling gospel luminary, Kirk Franklin, to the stage.

Chance The Rapper, real name Chancelor Bennett, 22, brought the Christian overtones of “Sunday Candy” into focus with the “Stomp” singer’s arrival on the platform.

Backed by a full choir, it felt like Sunday morning in Chi-town.

"Sunday Candy" is a collaboration with Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment that first appeared on the MC's Surf album earlier this year.

For fans of Franklin within the Christian community, the link-up may have seemed shocking, but for Chance The Rapper fans, it was anything but.

The young, ecclectic artist is known to be a diehard fan of Franklin's.

In fact, during a May lecture at Harvard University, he told the attentive class, “One of my favorite—if not my favorite artists, definitely my favorite composer—is Kirk Franklin.”

Having Franklin, a key source of inspiration, on stage to close out his set, likely felt like a dream come true.

“Thanks for the invite,” said Franklin in a Twitter post. “I couldn’t say no to my family in Chicago.”

Watch the performance below.
