On page 21 there is a great story on gospel’s Kierra Sheard and her recent graduation from Detroit’s Wayne State University with a degree in English Literature.
In the article she states that it took her six years to get her degree because she was performing on the weekends, but that it was worth it.
Kierra is engaged to Dr. Welton Smith and is anticipating her new CD, Free, on July 12th.
“As a gospel artist, I want to be an inspiration. Get your education, no matter what. You won’t ever regret it.”-Kierra Sheard
