Kierra Sheard is Engaged

Kierra Sheard is engaged and headed to the altar. The gospel songstress revealed that she is now engaged to be married to Jordan Kelly. The Clark Sisters singer revealed the good news on Instagram.

“I can’t believe it!!!!,” she captioned under a picture of her flashing her ring next to her new fiance. “You’re everything I’ve always wanted. I can’t wait to do life with you! Thank you for choosing me! You’re an answer to my prayers. The man in my dream is now my reality. What????!!!! God has His way of doing things, and through you, He’s shown me that if I trust Him, all will be well; and OH MY GOD— ALL IS WELL!

After overcoming her fears of weigh shaming and pressure to look a certain way, Sheard once considered leaving the music industry. “I think the year was 2004. I was like a sophomore or junior in high school, and I used to be over 300 pounds. I remember I was trying to get signed to this record label; they basically said I looked like the Pillsbury doughboy and I shouldn’t shoot full-body images. So every time they encouraged me to do shoots from the waist up,” she told Page Six.

As far as the industry goes, Kierra is gospel royalty. Daughter of gospel singer Karen Clark Sheard (member of gospel singing group The Clark Sisters) and the granddaughter of gospel choral director Mattie Moss Clark, the genre is more than just a career — it’s a part of her lineage, and she refused to kowtow to the bullies.
