Miss Franklin on Tuesday was inducted into the Gospel Music Association’s Gospel Music Hall of Fame along with country and bluegrass star Ricky Skaggs, singer-songwriter Dallas Holm, family group the Hoppers, the late televangelist Rex Humbard and Christian rockers Love Song.
Miss Franklin couldn’t attend the induction at Trinity Music City in Hendersonville, Tenn., but sent a video message played during the ceremony.
Christian stars Jaci Velasquez and Jason Crabb, who performed Miss Skagg’s signature song, “Somebody’s Prayin’,” hosted the event. Dailey & Vincent and Michael W. Smith were among presenters.
