Kierra Sheard teams up with Karen Clark-Sheard for powerful rendition of “Something has to break”
Kierra Sheard has a new single out and we’re loving it. The singer teamed up with her gospel legend mother, Karen Clark Sheard for a remake of her song “Something has to break”.
Originally recorded as a duet with Tasha Cobbs for Sheard’s “Kierra” album, the dynamic mother-daughter duo closed out the 2020 BET Awards with a riveting performance of their rendition of the song.
With lyrics such as “…I believe You'll get me to it, I believe You'll lead me through it, I believe that You will do it right now, something has to break,” the song is a cry of faith and very apt for the times we are in. Currently sitting at the top of the Billboard gospel digital sales chart, the song is predicted to sweep a few awards this year.
The accompanying music video for the song is akin to an episode of The Voice – the battle rounds, without the eliminations though. Showcasing their multi-octave ranges and powerful vocal prowess with their riffs, runs and squalls, the Sheard’s give us a 7 minute 25 second masterclass in singing.
Aside from their mesmerising vocals, Kierra and Karen both sing with a deep conviction and passion. Ultimately, it’s about ministry and Kierra recently encouraged her 1.3million Instagram followers to post their declarations in her comments section. “… I want to pray with you over whatever you are facing in this season… I want to see you declaring victory…#Somethinghastobreak” she posted.
