Seeking God earnestly is what every believer must do to grow stronger and it’s something gospel recording artist Kierra Sheard says she learned to do during a difficult time.

At just 14 years old, the soloist and entrepreneur nearly lost her mother, GRAMMY® Award-winning vocalist Karen Clark Sheard, which taught her how to storm Heaven’s gates on her own.

“It pushed me to get on my knees and go to God for myself,” the tearful “Flaws” singer remembers during an in-depth profile of her life for Centric’s hit docu-series, “BEING,” airing Saturday, March 25th 10pm/9pm ET/CT.

After a minor surgery, Kierra’s mother, first lady of Greater Emmanuel Institutional Church of God In Christ, explains during the episode, “I felt something in my lungs and I couldn’t breathe. I had a hard time breathing. So I pretty much collapsed on the bed and they realized that I had a blood clot on my lungs, which was traveling towards my heart.”

Clark Sheard, 56, went into a coma and was given just a two percent chance to live. “My wife was at the point of death,” says husband Bishop J. Drew Sheard during the dramatic recounting of events.

“At that moment, Mommy couldn’t pray,” recalls Kierra of the life-threatening situation that left her previously strong and active shero bedridden.
