Kierra Sheard

Kierra Sheard released her latest CD "Free" on her family label, Karew Records. The daughter of Karen Clark Sheard (of the legendary Clark Sisters) and Bishop J. Drew Sheard of Detroit, Mich., Sheard began her solo career in 2004 with EMI Gospel. Her previous hits include "You Don't Know," "Love Like Crazy," "Praise Him Now," and "Invisible."

Standout songs on her latest CD include the first single "Mighty" and "You Are" as well as "Free," which Sheard says "talks about the mind being a battlefield."

"My hope for this CD is that it rebrands me as an artist," she said. "I want people to see from this record that I am a servant of the kingdom and I want it to bless and change lives."
