Kierra Sheard GRACELAND

Summer is officially here and things are certainly heating up for Detroit’s own Kierra Sheard who recently debuted the album cover for her upcoming 5th CD release entitled “Graceland.” Graceland is set to be released July 22nd, 2014.

Kierra gets personal on GRACELAND and shares her ongoing inner battle between self-conviction and condemnation. Gail Mitchell from Billboard states, “Sheard’s triumph over turmoil ultimately triggered what is arguably her best and most versatile work to date. GRACELAND brims with self-introspection and lessons learned as a fearless Sheard bares her soul and shares a revelatory, yet joyous journey that everyone can personally embrace.” Kierra collaborated for the first time with celebrated pop songwriter Diane Warren (Beyoncé, Whitney Houston, Céline Dion) and rising songwriter/producer Harmony Samuels (Ariana Grande, Fantasia, Michelle Williams).

Kierra will be returning to TV in the fall with a new season of the hit BET reality show, “The Sheards,” and is also a new judge for “Sunday Best,” taking former Detroiter CeCe Winans’ place this season. Kierra is certainly out there reppin’ the “D” and we wish her all the best.

OF THE GATE, GRAMMY AWARD WINNING GOSPEL STAR KIERRA SHEARD, SITS ATOP
THE GOSPEL/CHRISTIAN MUSIC CHARTS ON ITUNES WITH THE RELEASE OF HER 5TH STUDIO ALBUM, GRACELAND, TODAY JULY 22

Los Angeles, CA – Kierra Sheard releases her highly anticipated album, GRACELAND, today, July 22. The newest judge on BET’s 7th season of “Sunday
Best” gets personal on GRACELAND and shares her ongoing inner battle
between self-conviction and condemnation. Gail Mitchell from Billboard
states, “Sheard’s triumph over turmoil ultimately triggered what is
arguably her best and most versatile work to date. GRACELAND brims
with self-introspection and lessons learned as a fearless Sheard bares
her soul and shares a revelatory, yet joyous journey that everyone can
personally embrace.” Kierra collaborated for the first time with
celebrated pop songwriter Diane Warren (Beyoncé, Whitney Houston, Céline
Dion) and rising songwriter/producer Harmony Samuels (Ariana Grande,
Fantasia, Michelle Williams).

 

The exuberant first single, “2nd Win,”
marches its cadence fittingly underscoring the song’s message about
overcoming life’s challenges. Kierra samples the Clark Sisters’ song, “They Were Overcome,” paying homage to the trailblazing work of the group’s members: Sheard’s aunts and her mother, Karen Clark Sheard. GRACELAND’s
other quintessential tracks range from the guitar-driven, folky
mid-tempo title track (“I Fall All the Time,” says Sheard. “That song
touches me because it’s what I feel every day”) to the rap-accented
anthem “Moving Forward.”

 

In
addition to promoting Graceland, Kierra recently launched a signature
hosiery line distributed by Walgreens and is recently finished filming
the second season of her family’s BET weekly docu-drama,
“The Sheards,” airing this Fall. Kierra’s philanthropic campaigns
include her youth organization: BRL (Bold! Right! Life!). The Non-profit
is fifteen chapters strong and is staging its 9th annual conference (Aug. 7-9)
in her hometown Detroit. Sheard recently launched a PSA campaign with
Saving our Daughters to support young girls battling homelessness and
date abuse.
