The Clark Sisters and Kierra Sheard Guest on Greater Emmanuel Live Recording August 17th

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

clark sisters glamDrew and KarenOf course, we knew it was bound to happen, and now we know when.  August 17th will more than likely go down as a historic moment when proud pastor Bishop J Drew Sheard presents the Greater Emmanuel Institutional Mass Choir in a live recording. If you remember, Greater Emmanuel’s 1994 CD The Sun Will Shine Again peaked at number 30 on the Billboard Top Gospel Albums charts and produced the radio hit Get the Glory. Of equal importance is the fact that Greater Emmanuel is the spiritual home of Detroit’s leading ladies,  The Clark Sisters (Karen Clark Sheard serves as first lady),  BET Sunday Best Judge Kierra Sheard and J Drew Sheard III.

As anticipated, the Clark Sisters and Kierra will make guest appearances on the CD and GEI minister of music and decorated producer Derrick Starks will share production duties with J Drew Sheard III.   Starks, who is a former music director for the Trumpet Awards and contributed to the Stellar Award nominated Temple of Deliverance Women’s Choir project is the composer of several chart topping compositions including So Many Times, He Brought Me and Take It Back (all recorded by Dorinda Clark Cole) which was celebrated by BMI as 2010’s Most Performed Gospel Song of the Year.
