Four-time Grammy Award winner Karen Clark Sheard is going to launch her new gospel album…and she wants to do it in Queens.
On Friday night, Sheard, who is known for her multi-octave vocal range, will introduce Destined to Win during a special concert at the Greater Allen AME Cathedral of New York in Jamaica.
She will share the stage with John P. Kee, who is known as “The Prince of Gospel Music.” With a soulful, husky voice, Kee is an inductee into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame and the Gospel Music Hall of Fame with two Billboard awards, one Soul Train award, and seven Grammy nominations. He currently leads the New Life Fellowship Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Faith Evans, a seven-time Grammy nominee, will also perform as part of the show. Over her roughly two-decade career, Evans has released eight studio albums.
