Biography

Kierra Sheard was born with music in her heart and a song on her lips. While most people have to study and learn a skill, for Kierra, as the youngest standard-bearer of one of Gospel music’s greatest family dynasties, it just runs in the blood.

Kierra, 17, is the daughter of Karen Clark-Sheard, a founding member of Gospel legends, the Clark Sisters, and who, since 1997, has been a celebrated solo artist in her own right. She’s also the granddaughter of the late Dr. Mattie Moss Clark, the prodigious conductor, arranger, songwriter, singer, instrumentalist and teacher who is roundly credited as one the defining influences in all of Gospel music.

With Kierra’s solo debut album, I Owe You, that incomparable family tradition is carried on in a voice and a sound that respects its roots, while taking the Gospel message to the masses in the cutting-edge urban, R&B and pop music of today.

“You Don’t Know,” co-written and produced by Grammy winning, superstar producer, Rodney Jerkins (Destiny’s Child, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Lopez, Will Smith, Joe, Kirk Franklin), is a driving, commanding hip-hop statement of God’s power and faithfulness in the lives of His children.

“This is really my testimony of all that God has done for me in my life,” says Kierra. “It’s important to me to share that with everyone, because it really let’s them know where I’m coming from. There was an old traditional song of the church with the same title and idea of sharing our testimonies, and Rodney wrote a completely new song with that as the inspiration, and with a totally modern sound that young people today can latch onto.
