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!!”

“I’m doing God’s work now and I’m not doing anything else” says China.

Upon the recent news of the cancellation of the “Black Lightning” TV Series, Disney star China McClain announces that she quietly decided to leave the show prior to it’s cancellation. On a recent Facebook Live she remains vague about her full reasons for walking away, but stresses that it was not because she didn’t like the cast she was working with. China praised the cast and encouraged fans to watch the coming spin off featuring Jordan Calloway (AKA Pain Killer).

In the video below, China speaks about her next moves.

“All this is an illusion. It’s an illusion. This industry for what it is and everything people look to and praise, it’s not important,” she said. “God is moving me in more ways that’s bigger than this show. I’m doing God’s work now and I’m not doing anything else. I’m just going to put it plainly. I’ve never felt more awake in my life.”

In the video, China speaks more about the start of her own production company and everything God has been teaching her during the quarantine. While her full reasons for leaving the show seem to remain purposely unclear, she simply encourages fans to trust her decision.

Since the passing of Chadwick Boseman, China has been speaking more about God and other challenging topics that she has been wrestling with during this year and throughout the quarantine season. In the video she addresses her recent changes saying, “It’s been put on my heart to say these things and I want to take that same energy and put it into my movies.”

With tears in her eyes, she spoke more saying,
“I’m creating things now for y’all and it’s not to get a check. It’s to teach you something or to show you new avenues that entertainment doesn’t show you right now. We need the Spirit man in these projects. I don’t know where it’s gone. I can only pinpoint a few now and the rest of them hurt me to watch. A lot of people say they want change but, I’m ready for things to change and I want to help. I’m done teeny bopping around here. It’s not about making the best next move. I don’t even care about that anymore. I want to be apart of the good. If I’m not really apart of it and helping to push it forward, then I don’t know what I’m doing here. So, that’s what I want to do.”

We don’t know where these new decisions will take China next, but we and all of her fans will be ready to stand by with prayers and continued support! The Black Lightning Chapter in her life may be closing. But, it’s clear her journey continues and it’s full of promise!

There’s still one last season left of Black Lightning. So, be sure to watch! If you’re late to the party, catch up on all previous seasons on Netflix.
