Guess who is the new judge on BET SUNDAY BEST! ? Yes you guessed it, gospel singer Kierra Sheard is the new judge for the gospel live singing show, that showcases talents in the gospel arena. She announced the news today on BET channel’s instagram page. We are super excited about this news. Sunday Best is basically American Idol for gospel singing talent. Just a reminder though, when you sing in gospel you are ministering; not entertaining.
