THE NU NATION PROJECT won the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Soul Gospel Album and was nominated for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical. "Lean On Me" was nominated for a 1999 Grammy for Song Of The Year, Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal and Best R&B Song.
In the '90s, Kirk Franklin emerged as the spearhead of the New Gospel movement that combined funky, contemporary urban sounds with spiritually oriented lyrical themes and won a whole new generation of fans for contemporary Christian music. If you took away the theological slant of the lyrics, THE NU NATION PROJECT would seem like a high-end R&B album, full of state-of-the-art production, a mixture of acoustic and electronic instrumentation and some impassioned, melismatic vocal performances. The grand production style underscores the earnestness of Franklin's lyrical concerns, as do the choral background vocals. Famous friends R. Kelly, Mary J. Blige and Bono (!) join in for the uplifting "Lean On Me."
Professional Reviews

Mojo (Publisher) (03/99, p.96) - "Franklin makes gospel records like DeMille used to make religious epics..."
