RCA Records announced a long term label deal with Kirk Franklin’s inspirational music label Fo Yo Soul Recordings. Kirk and his team will sign and develop talent while RCA will handle marketing, promotion and distribution for the label. Fo Yo Soul will also be the label home for Kirk Franklin future projects.
“We are thrilled to be Kirk’s partner. He is a one of a kind artist and music executive who brings his unique insight to inspirational music. We look forward to welcoming the new talent he will bring to the roster,” states Tom Corson, President & COO RCA Records.
The label’s first release will be the highly anticipated project from The Walls Group, who debuted their new single Perfect People on the season finale of the BET Gospel Music competition show Sunday Best. Franklin has hosted Sunday Best for the past six seasons and serves as executive producer for the show. In addition to the Walls Group, Fo Yo Soul will release the debut album from Tasha Page Lockhart, winner of this year’s Sunday Best competition in the Spring of 2014.
