“Black Panther” scored $111.7 million at the North American box office in its second week.

Ryan Coogler can, in part, thank Kirk Franklin and his family for helping boost the Marvel sensation on a trajectory that could ultimately land it among the highest grossing films.

In an Instagram post, the GRAMMY® Award-winning gospel songwriter posted a picture of his children, writing that he had gone to see “Black Panther for the third time.”

Franklin, 48, even shared a video of Christian comedian, Kev On Stage, adapting his hit praise anthem “Hosanna!” into a celebration song about “Wakanda!”—the name of the African superheroes’ fictional Kingdom.
