#BLX journeys to Detroit to discover the makings of its native daughter Kierra Sheard. On this episode, Sheard takes us to the block and into the pulpit, both of which are staples responsible for her talent and stardom.
“This block is important to me because this is where I saw my father be a provider and shepherd; and I saw my mom be a wife and a mother. This is the home where my mom recorded her debut record, Finally Karen. That’s when I had my debut moment on her song “The Will of God,” says Kierra.
