Kierra "KiKi" Sheard: Should Every Gospel Artist Be Preaching The Gospel of Jesus Christ?

Now, we bring up this issue with Kierra "KiKi" Sheard, because she is the daughter of Bishop Drew Sheard and First Lady Karen Clark Sheard, also the granddaughter of the late Dr. Mattie Moss Clark who was such a dynamic woman in the gospel music industry.    Dr. Mattie Moss Clark was not just a singer, but she also was a magnificent choir director.    Then, after the late Bishop John Seth Bailey died, Dr. Moss supposedly took over Bailey Temple Church of God in Christ where she was also the minister of music until she departed in 1994. 

Strange thing, especially in the black church, it seems as though everyone wants to be chief, meaning everyone who has a history of someone being a popular person in ministry, has to have a flock within one family doing the same thing.   We feel God shakes his head when he see it, because there are so many other things to do in ministry, instead of always wanting to be seen in the pulpit or carry on the tradition within a family.    

One thing, we cannot understand when we were sent this video from one of our readers, revealing Ki Ki Sheard supposedly preaching in the pulpit, we asked among our fellow journalists, 'how can one be called into ministry when they have not separated themselves from the world?'  Many in the Clark/Sheard family among many others in the black church and gospel music industry have to repent for following the ways of the world while claiming to be holiness people.   God is not pleased with it and we strongly feel in our spirits, so much work could be done outside of just giving God's Word behind a pulpit.   For the longest, we have known Dorinda Clark Sheard was an evangelist, then soon, Karen Clark Sheard popped up preaching as though she had a call from God.   Then, we thought, she is among a lot of first ladies in the black church who are not just satisfied being a first lady and also a gospel artist supposedly singing for the Lord, but possibly looking into another financial stream through tithes and offerings.    Now, we got this alert that Karen's daughter, KiKi Sheard is carrying on the tradition of preaching while yet carrying on as a hip hop gospel artist like her mother, brother and aunts when they all know very well God told us in His Word to not get caught up in worldly affairs and to be holy: 'Be Ye holy for I am holy (I Peter 1:16).'  Then the Word of God told us, "Love not the world neither the things that are in the world, He that loveth the world the love of the Father is not in him or her (I John 2:15)." Therefore, all of the dancing and the copying of hip hop style of gospel music has been a sin for a very long not just among the Clark and Sheard family, but among the entire gospel music industry.  

Most of the time, when we see gospel artists following in line behind others in ministry, most of the time, they are just doing it for a stream of income or to follow the family or church tradition, not necessarily because they are called to do it.     It is just like those who sing gospel music, not everyone in one family can sing or has a gift to sing and so, it is the same way with preaching, not everyone has the gift or has been called or chosen by God to preach.   We deeply feel Kierra "KiKi" Sheard needs to find herself in God and search her heart, because we feel she is just following those behind her who are just screaming, shouting and holding a tune in the microphone not focusing on saving souls, it's our opinion.  When gospel artists do so, do they really know God?  Are they really concern about how many souls they win?    

We deeply feel so many gospel artists are not doing the work of the Lord when they choose to preach and hold a title behind their name, if they have not been called by God to do so.   Many of them these days who are hip hop gospel artists should consider first letting go of their collaboration with secular and the entire gospel music industry and go out into the streets to pass out tracks, feed the homeless and visit the poor and elderly, because ministry is not about collecting money and it is definitely not about status.  

We were shown a past music video of KiKi Sheard and to our unfavorable amazement we saw her appearing butch and so we were not surprised to later on discover she allegedly entertains at gay clubs, according to an anonymous source; for this reason, it also did not surprise us that Karen Clark Sheard did not perform at NOM (National Organization for Marriage) and oppose same-sex marriages.   She was suppose to attend with Pastor Deitrick and Damita Haddon.   Now, why did Karen Clark Sheard do so when she is not only a first lady of a bishop, but a descendant of a holiness denomination, Church of God in Christ.   Think about it, why didn't Ki Ki's mother, Karen Clark Sheard show up at NOM?
