On this Mother’s Day, I am thinking of Wanda Cooper Jones as this will be her first Mother’s Day without her son Ahmaud Arbery, who was gunned down while he jogged in the middle of a Brunswick, Georgia neighborhood street in February. It must be even more painful for her to wake up today as his 26th birthday was Friday. I honestly have no words for yet another senseless assault on the seemingly tenuous humanity of a black man. If you can look at that video and see anything other than a murder in full-on daylight, I question your humanity…
And since my words are limited, I’m so glad that The Anointed Pace Sisters are able to capture in song the anguish she must feel even as the Father is adulated. They sing “In The Hands of God.”
Also, The Anointed Pace Sisters will also host a Mother’s Day Tribute TODAY on FB Live at 3 p.m.
On the heels of the major success of the recent Lifetime TV original movie The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel, Kierra Sheard is celebrating yet another impressive accolade: Her self-titled album KIERRA (Karew Entertainment / RCA Inspiration) is #1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Album’s chart, #1 on Billboard’s Top Christian/Gospel albums chart, and #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 Christian & Gospel Consumption chart! Released on April 17th, KIERRA has knocked the longstanding #1 Jesus Is King out of the top position, and has garnered more than 3 million streams in its first week.
The album includes 15-tracks with sounds ranging from Pop, R&B, Hip-Hop, and Gospel, and features some live recorded songs which Kierra performed before a sold out crowd in her hometown of Detroit, MI. Demonstrating her lyricism, Kierra either wrote or co-wrote all of the tracks on the album including the beautiful ballad “Grateful,” the authentic and raw “Human,” and “Better.” Assisted by a dynamic team, KIERRA features production from her frequent collaborators, Harmony “H-Money” Samuels and her brother J. Drew Sheard, as well as songwriters Mia Fieldes, Varren Wade, Edgar “JV” Etienne, Justin Brooks and rising Chicago artist Sir the Baptist. In addition to Missy Elliott and Tasha Cobbs Leonard, the album features vocals from other star Gospel Artists Todd Dulaney, Le’Andria Johnson and Kierra’s nephew Jacob Sheard.
As Kierra said, she is experiencing a bittersweet moment in life…Congratulations to her and her family on her success, and I pray that her and her family will be comforted as they grieve the loss of their precious matriarch.
