Setting the Stage: Kierra Sheard Lights Up the Apollo Live Stage
Born to Sing
Kierra 'Kiki' Sheard first performed on the Apollo stage at about the age of nine.

This doesn't mean, though, that her craft doesn't take discipline. Want to be an A1 performer like Kierra? Takethese tips... (photo: John Ricard / BET)
