RCA Inspiration celebrated the 2021 BET Awards with a powerful night for Gospel, as two #1 hits from Kirk Franklin were lauded at this year's awards.

The sixteen-time GRAMMY®-winning artist, songwriter, and producer was honored with the Dr. Bobby Jones Best Gospel/Inspirational Award for the second consecutive year, winning for his #1 Gospel hit single "Strong God" (from his hit album Long Live Love).

Franklin also kicked off the night's broadcast in an exuberant opening performance with Lil Baby, showcasing their #1 Gospel hit "We Win" (featured from the soundtrack for the highly-anticipated summer movie Space Jam: A New Legacy). The 2021 BET Awards ceremony was held before a live audience at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, June 27th.
