The headlines have been spreading the word like wildfire that Grammy nominated artist Kierra Sheard has “dethroned” Kanye from holding the number one spot on the Billboard Gospel charts, but Kierra has been responding to those headlines with class and a spirit of unity, not competition.

Kierra posted the following statement in response to these type of headlines on instagram:

“As this is not an ill competition but a race/journey that we are on to win souls and uplift the world with the message of Jesus Christ, hope, love, and more,” Kierra wrote on Instagram. “I’ve been a fan of Kanye’s music. I’on won’t no smoke! Lmbo but I’m super honored to have been chosen to have been apart of this moment in music history. Thank you @billboard for this highlight on gospel music. God is faith and His message and love still conquers all! I hope you’re still listening to my new music and are being empowered!”

 

WILL WE SEE A COLLAB WITH KIERRA AND KANYE?


To further emphasize that Kierra does not see her win as a competition with Kanye, she spoke about being open to a collaboration with the artist. During a live stream on Hollywood Unlocked, Sheard told the host, Jason Lee, that she would indeed love to work with Kanye West one day:

“Absolutely, I would and I would make things clear that just because I am working with someone … because you know we have family that we disagree with but I’m still gonna love them,” she expressed to Jason. “Sometimes us coming together will do something different for the world … so absolutely! But there would be some statements following my decision with that feature.”

KIERRA HAS A LOT TO CELEBRATE!

Kierra has a lot to celebrate! In addition to landing the number one spot on Billboard Gospel Charts, she also just completed her acting debut in nthe Lifetime TV Film “The Clark Sisters” where Kierra had the honor of playing her mother Karen Clark Sheard in the film. According to Nielson, the film reached a staggering 2.7 million total viewers! That’s a huge victory for this Kierra and her entire family which was represented in the film.

We’re excited to see what’s next for Kierra as she continues to soar to new heights in multiple industries! From all of us fans, we just say “Keep going Queen!!”

ArtSoul Radio was able to celebrate with Todd Dulaney for his “Live” and in-person album release concert this weekend. If you missed it, we’ve got you covered! Keep reading for our full review along with a link to the full concert.

Commemorating the release of his new album “Anthems & Glory”, Todd Dulaney and his team provided those present at Freedom Baptist Church in Hillside, IL and for those viewing the event live via YouTube with an immersive experience filled with exactly what the title suggests! As Chicago begins to slowly re-open after being under tight pandemic restrictions, this night was a breath of fresh air that gave many the release they have been looking for!

The album release concert was a full house! Chicago supporters and many others travelled to show up for Todd and to be present for a powerful worship experience.

After a powerful prayer, the “Proverbs 3” singer surprised the audience with a video of him filling the room with gratitude through a heartfelt thank you for the support he’s received throughout the years since releasing his first song. That gratitude immediately turned the night into a time of nostalgia as the band begin playing some of the music the Chicagoland native has now made staples for worship all across the world!

Todd and his team set the tone from start to finish throughout this event. From his entrance during “Your Great Name” he commanded the presence of the spirit with new songs formed straight from the Word of God. With the help of His mentor in the industry Pastor Smokie Norful alongside Todd Galberth, and Pastor David Gilford, the night was a steady ascension into glory.

This album and the event were both reminders of exactly why the worship culture continues to look to DulaneyLand’s pour for sounds that are resounding invitations for God’s presence to fill every space!
