Heed Magazine caught up with famed singer and songwriter Kierra Sheard on last week, who launched her hosiery line, Sheers by Sheard, in association and partnership with Relevé Entertainment and Walgreens in Chicago.

The Grammy and Stellar Award winning singer, and star of BET’s “The Sheards” and newest judge on “Sunday Best” brought her line of hosiery for curvier women to the megastore.

“I’m excited about being with my fans and the opportunity to give them an overview about my hosiery line and new partnership with Walgreens,” says Sheard. She wants young people to know that it is important to diversify their streams of income and enter into markets that they may not have anticipated.

The hosiery line is Sheard’s first retail fashion endeavor and will be distributed in select Walgreens outlets in the Chicagoland and Houston areas.

In celebration of her launch, the star made multiple in-store appearances at selected Walgreens outlets in the Chicagoland area.
