Tammy Franklin says that when she first met her future husband, Kirk Franklin, she was immediately impressed with him: an 18-year-old minister of music who seemed to know what he wanted in life. The day they met, Kirk told Tammy that his ambition was to write gospel music that brought together disparate music genres—reggae, hip-hop, classical—and that's exactly what Kirk did.

Overall, Tammy says, she was "amazed" by the future gospel star, so they exchanged phone numbers. Kirk's first attempt to call Tammy didn't go well, though—whoever answered abruptly hung up. Fortunately for both of them, he didn't give up.
