WATCH: Gospel singer Kierra Sheard gets emotional
while sharing her battle with fear and doubt

Stellar Award-winning gospel artist Kierra Sheard has touched lives around the world with her voice.
And yet, the songstress grapples with fear and doubt.

In a new YouTube video, the “Indescribable” singer gets emotional and transparent about her
personal struggles, and offers up useful advice to others on how to win
their battles.

“I was super, just like, doubting myself and just comparing myself, and it was just a lot,” the 29-year-
old admitted in an upload titled “Kierra’s Konfession.”

In the midst of her funk, in that very low mental, emotional and spiritual place, Kierra said, “I got a
few messages from friends” to help uplift her.

Before moving on with the video, the daughter of Bishop J. Drew Sheard needed an off-camera
break to regroup and get her emotions in check.

The preacher's daughter temporarily felt  too overwhelmed to go on.

Upon returning to filming, the young CEO was better able to articulate her dilemma. “So, I was living
in my mind all day yesterday and I just kept doubting myself. It was terrible and I had to start talking
to myself," she said.

According to the eleven60 full-figured clothing designer, healthy self-talk is a strategy taught to her
by her mom, Karen Clark Sheard of the legendary Clark Sisters.

“If you don’t talk to yourself, then you’re crazy,” Kierra said, repeating her mother’s advice as a
means of conquering the spirit of "doubt" as well as "disbelief" and "discouragement."

For others in the same war as she is, Kierra advised them to “say the positive things that your mind
needs to hear so that you are defeating those fears.”

Instead of simply rebuking fears, Kierra said work hard to defeat them totally.

“To rebuke something, it means that you’re correcting it and that’s it, but to defeat it, it means it will
not come anymore. You won the fight,” she explained.
