In addition to releasing her chart-topping album, 2020 proved to be a year of many successes for the young mogul. The songstress is currently nominated for two NAACP Image Awards (Outstanding Gospel/Christian Album, KIERRA, and Outstanding Gospel/Christian Song, “Something Has to Break”) and was nominated for Best Gospel Album (KIERRA) at the 63rd GRAMMY® Awards.
