God's Property is a gospel choir known for its collaborations with Kirk Franklin and other recording artists. Musical career: God's Property Choir was organized and founded by a public school music teacher by the name of Linda Ray Hall-Searight in 1992 in Dallas, Texas. She along with her son, Grammy Award Winner Robert Sput Searight were totally responsible for recruiting all of the original singers and musicians of this choir. They both groomed the choir into an exceptional performing organization that was often featured on national television shows in the mid and late 90's. The choir began to collaborate with Kirk Franklin in 1993 and sang backup on his 1995 album, Whatcha Looking' 4. Franklin, in turn, produced and co-wrote most of the songs on the group's 1997 album (also produced by Scott "Shavoni" Parker and Buster & Kevin Bond).Kirk Franklin often works out new material with the choir in the studio and has appeared with the choir on the Late Show with David Letterman. The choir itself has performed with Celine Dion at the encore of the "Call The Man/Power of the Dream" concert in Dallas, Texas and on The 10th Annual Essence Awards with Stevie Wonder. In 1998, they performed a few songs for Kirk Franklin's The Nu Nation Project. On November 2, 1998, God's Property sued Kirk Franklin. The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, alleges that Franklin's parent label executives Vickie Mack induced God's Property founder Linda Searight into signing an "onerous and one-sided" contract with B-Rite Music.
