The 18-year-old progeny of a long and successful lineage of gospel performers, Kierra "Kiki" Sheard returns with her self-assured third album, THIS IS ME. Although the lyrics never stray from Sheard's strong professions of faith, musically THIS IS ME is a vibrant, up-to-the-minute pop-R&B album in the style of Brandy or Destiny's Child. Songs like "You're the Only One" and "Hear This," along with the celebratory title track, have the lyrical power and musical heft to lift Sheard to the next level of attention.

Reviews - What do customers think about This Is Me?
Outstanding! Jan 15, 2007
Its good to have someone who sings about Jesus to have something that young people would actually choose to listen to before they listen to some of the secular artist out there.
Outstanding Jan 5, 2007
This is one of the best CD's I have heard in a while. Ki Ki brung it! The production is excellent and her voice of course is anointed. There is a little something for everyone on here of all ages.
Excellent Oct 26, 2006
I completely agree with the comments from Danny in Ohio. It seems like even with a variety of producers, Kiki has established a style that is uniquely hers. It is very creative and fresh-sounding.
I am thankful that we can have this type of diversity in spiritual music. I love all types of music, spiritual and mainstream, and in my opinion this is a perfect blend of The Message and current musical trends -- especially when you consider Kiki's age.
Kiki's age! That's worth mentioning. She sings with experience, wisdom, and power. That Clark musical gene is strong and you can hear shades of her mom and auntie often ... yet baby girl has a vibe all her own, and I thank God for it. This girl is already a talent beyond compare and I can't even imagine to what levels she's capable of rising to.
Some reviewers have said that this album "doesn't sound like Kiki." It does to me; I mean, if not her, who does it sound like? There are a lot of younger female singers (spiritual and mainstream) that have soprano voices and attempt to do vocal acrobatics. But Kierra is in a class of one and really can't be compared to any of them.
This is the expanded edition of THIS IS ME and the extra tracks are more than worth the premium over the regular edition. That set, with its 13 tracks, stands as a solid effort by itself. But if you know you can have more of what the Lord has blessed us with through this young lady of ministry, why miss out?
THIS IS ME is a job well-done, and clearly shows that the Clark legacy is alive, well, and kicking!
wait this isnt a bad album Sep 11, 2006
i just gave this album a listen and i going to say that this is far from being a bad album. man it amazes me like that other person said at how close-minded some people still are. honestly do they just LOOK for something to hate??? believe it or not not all chistians are exteremly conservative like people like to think of us as. now to that person that dissed kiki because of some of the production on this CD. this was HER album and HER songs. aight?? you got that? if she wanted to have dark child(who does also have a chritian label)produce the album then that is her business. if that is so evil would virtues new album(testimony) be evil as well?. this album was nice in beats and lyrics. some of the songs stood out to me bc i like the way she expressed her issues that she has dealt with and is dealing with. this album is dealing with christian YOUTH issues. now is this a praise and worship CD? no. but does that mean that this CD is w/o worth? ABSOLUTELY NOT! also about you hatin on yolanda adams singing that chaka khan song on BET. well i didnt think she would sing it either bc i had never seen her sing anything other than gospel but she did a great job. it was originally supposed to be someone else singing it on that show but that person couldnt do it so she did it at the last minute. hello the song wasnt nasty. so guess what? SHE DID NO WRONG. and you say you tired of ppl saying "we need to change to get young people".....IM SICK AND TIRED of bible thumping people that always wanna wear angel wings when they are only 1 foot away from hell theirselves. it makes me angry. and if you are opposed to that then you are probably going to oppose my review as well because i love gospel but guess what? I LOVE R&B ALSO(babyface, neyo, jaguar wright, angie stone, jon b, luther vandross, isley brothers, carl thomas, heather headley, jill scott, floetry, javier, donell jones, frankie j, blu cantrell, ciara, faith evans, erykah badu, india arie, chante moore, shanice, calvin richardson, teedra moses, cherish, SWV, brandy etc, etc, etc) so am i in sin? awww mannnn(sarcasm). look at some of the rnb artist that started off doing gospel(monica, mary j blige, aretha franklin) are they being evil? realize that not everybodys voice is suited for traditional gospel and kierra is one of those people. yeah her voice is good but it is not suited for traditional gospel sry to say it. also another agreement with another review i saw. we wont ever reach out to people when we are being that picky. we alwasy talking about somebody and what they doing wrong and we wonder why they dont become christians. well that's becuase they see the example of how we treat others. do you think they want anything to do with that? think about that. im out.
P.S. stop hatin on kirk. kirk franklin is awesome. also karen clark is great to. stop being so judgemental. oh yeah that person that was talking about the interview. i dont think she was trying to justify listening to lil jon. she was just saying an example. that just because one listens to or sings secular music does not mean that they are doing evil. ligthen up please.
Open your mind and your heart Aug 8, 2006
I have been reading some of these reviews and I have to say taht I'm truly suprised at how close minded people are these days. This is a great album, positive messages, good beats, and great singing. So maybe she did use Darckchild, who as well has a christian label and Virtue being the first artist signed to it (if you like this cd, I highly recommend you get Testimony by Virtue). But you probably didn't know that did you? Anyways, why do people feel that just because someone produces other music that there is something wrong with them? Music comes from God and just because a song doesn't scream Jesus all over it doesn't mean that you shouldn't listen to it. She is reaching out to a group of people that like this style of music, which I am one. You cannot get away from the message that is behind the music, that's what it's all about. Sometimes we focus too much on the messenger and totally ignore the message.
I also have to say that I know unsaved people that I have played this cd around and they absolutely love it. They were really suprised that chritian music could be so appealing to them. That's just the firt step, get them hooked to the music, then as they listen more and more they being to hear the message and through that is how lives are changed. Maybe this cd isn't for everyone, but I will say it keeps me strong in my faith, gives me something positive to listen to, and clearly has the ability to reach those that don't know Jesus christ. I highly doubt God himself can be mad at that, so why are you?
You most definitely want to buy this version of the album as there are two. One does not include the bonus tracks like this one does. I think the extra tracks are worth the few dollars extra you might pay for it.
