Grisanthia Franklin, "San" as she is affectionately called, hails from the Oakland-San Francisco Bay Area by way of Chicago, Illinois. Now making Nashville her home, San Franklin is in a focused season in her life, poised for greater works with incredible outcomes. Being noted as one of Gospel and Christian music's most commanding vocalists and professional session singers, San Franklin is strategically stretching her artistry and ministry beyond any boarders that man can establish.
Her brilliant background vocal arrangements and production, and solo vocals are heard on several Grammy®, Stellar and Dove award-winning recordings. She has worked with and traveled nationally and internationally with some of the biggest names in music including Heather Headley, Bishop Paul Morton, Martina McBride, Beverly Crawford, The Newsboys, Yolanda Adams, The Clark Sisters, Aretha Franklin, Alvin Slaughter, Donnie McClurkin, Casting Crowns, Lisa Knowles-Smith, Jill Scott, CeCe Winans, Raphael Saadiq, Indian mega-producer Pritam, Christina Aguilera and many more. San positions herself with her own music now for eager fans and for a world that will gravitate to her voice and be changed by the God in her.
Earlier this year, San hosted her first live recording in Nashville, TN. The outcome of a dynamic, worshipful night has yielded her new single "Blessing Me". With guest vocalist Chrystal Rucker, San dishes out a churchy, robust song, capturing the essence of her talent and depth of her anointing.
"Blessing Me" is now available on all digital music outlets. The EP/Single is an eleven-minute live musical experience that only San can deliver dynamically while keeping listeners engaged in praise! "Blessing Me" is the first single from her forthcoming album THE FREE PROJECT. San tapped the most gifted and innovative musicians and producers John "Matt" Clark, Jr, Forrest Walker and Lance Lucas to work with her on THE FREE PROJECT that will release in 2020.
