Detroit, MI (November 20, 2015) - Today, award-winning singer, fashion designer and television star Kierra Sheard has released LED, an EP that had her teaming up with her brother, producer J. Drew Sheard II and contributing producer Jor’Dan Armstrong. In a similar vein as recent full-length public releases from artists Beyoncé and J. Cole, Kierra decided to forego the tradition of promoting singles through radio in advance of today’s release. Available digitally on iTunes, the 8-track EP is made up of an array of sounds and styles that will give you a back-in-the-day vibe. The title track, “LED,” has a strong sound and message that is sure to keep your head bobbing while listening. Other songs on the project include “Make Me Better,” “Oh Jesus” and “So Easy,” and all will have listeners transported to wherever the music leads them.

Congratulations go out to gospel artist Tim Bowman, Jr. and his lovely new bride, Brelyn, who were married on October 10th, 2015, in Maryland. Following their marriage, news of their pledge to remain abstinent until marriage, went viral on social media. In the aftermath, the two appeared on Good Morning America and Good Day DC, where they expressed their firmly held religious beliefs to keep their virginity until becoming husband and wife, and served as an encouragement to others who have made the same choice. Tim Bowman is the son of gospel/jazz guitarist Tim Bowman, Sr. and the nephew of gospel artist Vickie Winans. Brelyn is the daughter of Pastor Mike and First Lady Dee Dee Freeman of Spirit of Faith Christian Church in Maryland. Tim's latest single, "I'm Good" continues to climb the gospel charts.
