About our Talented Artist Country Singer Franklin Cisco Burns:
Career Highlights: Franklin’s first professional performance was at The Waldorf Astoria NYC. Born three months premature on a farm in the small town of Garfield, Georgia to two amazing parents, Frank and Silvernette Burns, Franklin was not expected to survive. But miracles do happen and he did against all odds.
Growing up, music was and still is his therapy. He always loved country music and was teased for it. The most popular tease was that he liked country music because he wanted to be white. Confused by people’s reaction to his favorite type of music, he wondered why people would think that because of his race he couldn’t be drawn to that genre.
In fourth grade he tried to sing other songs, music he wasn’t naturally drawn to, in order to stop the constant teasing. He failed, and because of that ended up being teased anyway because it didn’t sound good, which resulted in him being told that singing wasn’t for him. That’s what happens when you let others influence what you think is right for you. He ultimately returned to his passion, though, and his love for country music never died.
A few years later, one day after school, Franklin’s oldest sister Cassandra told him to stick around because she wanted him to audition for a talent show. Although, he was shy and extremely scared, he did it anyway because he could never say no to his sister. His family knew he loved music, but had never really heard him sing. So for Cassandra to ask him to audition meant she saw something in him he didn’t see in himself at that time yet.
The talent show took place on his parent’s anniversary. Hearing him sing for the first time was his gift to them. The praise Franklin received from his family and friends boosted his confidence, and although he was still teased for liking country music, he did not let that stop him. He went on with his life and kept his dream of being a country singer to himself thinking he would never be accepted in that genre as an African American.
Fast-forward to today, Franklin is now fortunate to be part of the amazing team Clash Of The Industries where he is living his dream. In addition, he has been modeling for PopImpressKA brand’s men’s line.
Always grateful for any opportunity coming his way, he thanks God for his gift, and his family, friends, and fans for the love and support, which keeps him going.
He is currently working on an album. The next upcoming event is the release of his single “It Rains".
