[MUSIC] Graceland Debuts at #1


Have you gotten your copy of Graceland yet?!

Kierra Sheard’s fifth studio album, GRACELAND, debuted at number one on Billboard’s Gospel Albums chart and number 33 on the Top 200 chart this week. “Mainstream, urban gospel, contemporary are all labels that could definitely fit the description of her new album,” says Latrea Morrowfrom Chicago Gospel Music Examiner.

The newest judge on BET’s 7th season of “Sunday Best” gets personal on GRACELAND and shares her ongoing inner battle between self-conviction and condemnation. Gail Mitchell from Billboard states, “Sheard’s triumph over turmoil ultimately triggered what is arguably her best and most versatile work to date. GRACELAND brims with self-introspection and lessons learned as a fearless Sheard bares her soul and shares a revelatory, yet joyous journey that everyone can personally embrace.” Kierra collaborated for the first time with celebrated pop songwriter Diane Warren(Beyoncé, Whitney Houston, Céline Dion) and rising songwriter/producer Harmony Samuels (Ariana Grande, Fantasia, Michelle Williams).


In addition to promoting Graceland, Kierra recently launched a signature hosiery line distributed by Walgreens and recently finished filming the second season of her family’s BET weekly docu-drama, “The Sheards.” Kierra’s philanthropic campaigns include her youth organization: BRL (Bold! Right! Life!). The Non-profit is fifteen chapters strong and is staging its 9th annual conference (Aug. 7-9) in her hometown Detroit. Sheard recently launched a PSA campaign with Saving our Daughters to support young girls battling homelessness and date abuse.

[New Music Monday] Anita Wilson – Vintage Worship

When Anita Wilson released her debut album, Worship Soul, in 2012, she created a new lane of gospel music– the kind that seamlessly merged a tried-and-true message with throwback soul stylings and contemporary gospel grooves. Now, two years and GRAMMYStellar and Dove award nominations later, she dominates the lane as she goes from 0 to 100 with her new project, Vintage Worship.

On Vintage WorshipAnita Wilson takes listeners on a musical journey, giving a nod to some of the best styles of classic soul, R&B, jazz and even disco, all while delivering the gospel without apology. To craft the 12-track project, she again enlists her partner-in-music, hitmaking producer Rick Robinson.

Absolute favorites on the project include “Time After Time,” a well-delivered mid-tempo groove featuring Anaysha Figueroa, the thumping R&B tune “So Gone” (which ends with a beautifully jazz-themed bevy of vocals) and “Keep Doing What You’re Doing,” which is set to an 80′s soul vibe before leading into a driving churchy vamp.

Other standouts include the album opener, “Close To You,” which is an interlude-like tune with an emphatic plea, “You Love Me (Best of My Love),” a feel-good throwback that incorporates the 1970′s Emotions disco hit “Best of My Love,” and “Everything (Definition of a Friend),” a worshipful declaration with passionate lyrics and a sweeping melody.

The project is definitely a soul album, so those who aren’t too keen on classic R&B music may not absolutely adore it as much as those of us who are classic soul heads for life. Don’t get stuck on the style, though– from start to finish, Vintage Worship is, at its core, just a collection of feel-good music and worthy addition to your collection.
