Kierra Sheard & Karen Clark-Sheard Close Out the 2020 BET Awards with Emotional ‘Something Has to Break’

For the final performance of the 2020 BET Awards on Sunday (June 28), gospel star Kierra Sheard took to the stage with her mother Karen Clark-Sheard (of The Clark Sisters) to send audiences away with a moment of hope.

The duo performed Kierra’s song “Something Has to Break,” an impassioned anthem off of her latest self-titled album, where the singer begs God for some sense of relief or solution during troubled times. “Tear down every lie/Set the wrong thing right,” she sang. “‘Cause when you have your way/ Something has to break.”

Both Karen and Kierra appeared on a brightly lit stage, dressed in shimmering black gowns, with a backup chorus similarly dressed in all-black, punctuating their every word. The powerful performance even included an ad-lib coda, with the mother-daughter duo singing powerfully back and forth to one another, before Kierra closed out the performance with one final plea: “Speak and say it’s breaking.”

The knockout gospel number capped off a night of massive performances at the BET Awards, including ones from stars like Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, Megan Thee Stallion and many more.
