The Sheards’ docu-drama is gearing up for its BET network premiere, and J. Drew, a member of the popular Christian family that will be featured on the series, recently opened up about his family’s decision to take on the endeavor.
J. Drew Sheard II, the son of Detroit mega church pastor Bishop J. Drew Sheard and 4-time Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter Karen Clark Sheard, will document his struggles growing up in the well-known family while establishing his own music career on the show. The 23-year-old Sheard son opened up to The Christian Post about how his family began their reality television show career.
“The opportunity was presented to me by one of my good friends who worked in the TV entertainment business. It’s actually a guy that I’ve known for a long time,” Sheard told CP. “He (said) you know it would be dope if we could do a reality show on some Christians but yet they’re still normal people and they do normal things … I got my whole family together, my mom my dad and Kiki. I asked them ‘how would y’all feel about us doing a reality show?’ They were like ‘man it would be great.'”
While Sheard’s father and mother have established their careers in the Christian community, his 24-year-old sister Kierra Sheard is also a budding gospel singer. However, Sheard told CP that he may be looking to take a different musical route.
