Just how mesmerizing is Kierra Sheard’s voice? Captivating enough to shut down a noisy audience until you can hear a pin drop. Case in point: Sheard’s Grammy Week performance at BET’s annual Music Matters showcase. Those lucky enough to be in the audience that day were treated to a brief but powerful set that included a song about insecurities, both physical and emotional in her single, “Flaws,” as well as a goose bump-raising cover of the Mary J. Blige classic “No More Drama.” That colorful versatility provides the creative blueprint for Sheard’s contemporary urban inspirational sound.
“It’s about singing an inspiring song that everyone can listen to,” explains Sheard, “especially those people who may never step foot in a church. It’s about R&B and hip-hop and gospel beats mixed with other pop/rock sounds—but always with a positive message.” Sheard delivers that and more on her Stellar Award-nominated fifth album,Gracelandfrom Karew Records, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s and iTunes’ Gospel Albums charts.
