Gospel singer Kierra “Kiki” Sheard is preparing to lose weight and take back her temple! Kierra, who is the daughter of Karen Clark Sheard of the famous Clark Sisters, says getting in shape for her is not only for physically reasons but for spiritually reasons as well.
With four albums, two Stellar Awards and a Grammy nomination, the 25-year-old chart topping Kierra Sheard once weighed over 300 pounds! Kierra recently shared with EBONY.com that her lifelong struggle with her weight is due to over-eating, lack of physical activity and her family’s medical history.
