Product DescriptionTwo CD set containing nine incredible sermons from one of the greatest orators of all time. Clarence LaVaughn Franklin, often abbreviated to C. L. Franklin was an American Baptist minister and a civil rights activist. He was also the father of Aretha Franklin. Throughout the late 1940s and 1950s his fame grew, and he preached throughout the country while maintaining his pulpit at New Bethel. Known as the man with the "Million Dollar Voice", Franklin was one of the first ministers to place his sermons on records (which continued into the 1970s), and also to broadcast sermons via radio on Sundays. He commanded high fees for his public appearances, and among his most famous sermons were "The Eagle Stirreth Her Nest" and "Dry Bones in the Valley."
