Kierra Sheard: Pay Attention & Look Around … The Lord ‘Is’ Doing A New Thing

I had the opportunity to speak with Kierra Sheard about her new project, 5-years in the making, “Kierra.” We also talked about playing her mother Karen Clark Sheard in the record breaking Lifetime Biopic, “The Clark Sisters: The First Ladies of Gospel” and as a bonus track, her Eleven60 clothing line.

Listen To Kierra Talk About Eleven60 Here:

Off the air, Kierra and I spoke about how the Coronavirus has impacted her family and sadly, her grandmother, Mother Willie Mae Sheard succumbed to the deadly virus on April 19, 2020. At the time of this post, her grandfather is still hospitalized.  We are praying for the entire family.

In this quarantine, stay at home time in our lives, celebrations have become very creative. From Zoom parties to Facebook live, we’ve all had to come up with fun ways to mark great occasions.

When “The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel” premiered, it dawned on me that all the celebrations and acknowledgements had to be squashed.  But thanks to some amazing people… the moment clearly was not lost on these talented women.

Angela Birchett did a virtual red-carpet premiere with one her best friends Tituss Burgess:

So, usually when it’s work I forget to celebrate the big moments in life. I’m usually like “okay great! What’s next!”. But I have friends who are family to me who think to do things like this! They always celebrate with me and motivate me to keep going. They’re literally the fuel that I come back home for. Thank you babe and @shammroxx for a moment to remind me to celebrate the great achievements in life. Soak it in! Y’all were so creative with this and I’m just still blown away. I wanted to run after the cars and kiss and hug everybody. But they were like “uh uh (in Cardi b voice) carina viiirus). And when I saw my pooshkin and gracey Pooh yelling through the window that sent me over the cliff. I love y’all so much and thank you again for reminding me that this wasn’t a fly by night opportunity. I miss my grandparents and haven’t been able to talk to them while they’re recovering. But J brought them, my parents, and Drew to the VIP section while in quarantine. Im still in shock at the day! I love you! 🤣🤣🤣 thank you my @mycourtcourt for capturing this!!!
