Somerset, New Jersey – dfree®, the global Financial Freedom Movement that has helped individuals and organizations pay down more than $1 million in debt, hosts its Homecoming Conference October 25th – 28th at First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens.
On Friday, October 26th, the tone will be set with a dynamic Gospel concert featuring Grammy winner Bishop Hezekiah Walker and Gospel music darling Kierra Sheard. Reverend DeForest B. Soaries, Jr. says of the concert “we don’t believe we can accomplish anything without worship. Worship is a spiritual requirement and it is the foundation of everything that we do.”
Kierra Sheard is the powerhouse Detroit-bred vocalist and heir apparent to the Clark Sisters dynasty that includes her mother, Karen Clark Sheard. Kierra gained notoriety with her 2004 debut album I Owe You and since then has released four albums including the Grammy nominated This Is Me. Sheard is beloved for her captivating energy, soaring vocals and youthful yet authentic approach to Gospel music.
Two-time Grammy winner and Gospel Music Hall of Fame inductee Bishop Hezekiah Walker has 15 albums to his credit. Walker, pastor of Love Fellowship Church in Brooklyn, has infused an urban flavor into choir music over his 30 year career, and his Love Fellowship Crusade Choir is world renowned for its vocal prowess, high energy and infectious praise.
Both artists are also successful businesspeople whose lives embrace the tenets of the dfree® philosophy.
