Kierra Sheard recently announced that she’s dropping a new album on November 20th, but the Sunday Best judge says that just because her music has the Gospel label, doesn’t mean that the quality is less that any other form of music.
“I’ve been raised in the church, that’s all I know. Having said that, I fell in love with Kirk Franklin when he came out with something that didn’t sound churchy,” she continued. “It gave me more boldness and audacity to go around saying, ‘Hey, I’m a believer and I’m bold about it. I’m proud about it because that same creativity that you all love in the world is bigger and doper in the church.’
Sheard also said that she hopes to use her music to change her generation.
“I didn’t always have to turn to R&B and secular artists because there were always Christian artists giving us something new. I wanted to do what the Clark sisters did for their generation, what Andrae Crouch did for his generation, and I’m hoping to do that for our generation.
