This 4-year-old girl stunned people all over Instagram with her flawless rendition of a classic gospel song. She’s the granddaughter of Karen Clark Sheard, from the Grammy Award-winning group The Clark Sisters, which explains her talent.


Karen Clark Sheard recently took to Instagram to treat her followers with a video of her granddaughter showing off her amazing vocals at only 4-year-old.


The adorable toddler, named Kali, is the daughter of musician and producer Jay Drew Sheard II, and her powerful vocals show that talent definitely runs in the family.


In the clip, Karen is playing the piano and singing a rendition of Vicky Yohe's popular praise song "Because of Who You Are." Kali is sitting on a sofa next to her grandma as she repeats line after line of the song imitating Karen’s vibrato and tone effortlessly.

The proud grandma captioned the clip:

“Gm Family Let this be your worship for today I caught my 4 yr old granddaughter singing and it blessed me. Sorry Y'all didn’t get the last part she said: “Nana that’s enough.”



Impressed fans took over the comment section to share their thoughts on the girl’s undeniable talent.

“Wow, that's amazing the whole family was blessed with heavenly voices!” - @jesusismyair

“Psalm 1:3 The Legacy goes on and on and...sing Baby.” - @debbierobinson6


“What’s so amazing is she’s actually on key and that first vibrato was everything.” - @mick.media

The girl also caught the attention of rapper and producer Missy Elliot, who reposted the video on her Instagram page to share it with her 2.6 million followers and captioned it:

“This is Generations of SAAANGING! This is the Legendary @karenclarksheard from the Legendary gospel group “The Clark Sisters” grandbaby yes lil one show the people you got that church vibrato no effects on ya vocals. God Bless her so adorable lol it was a battle at the end between her and her grandma tho okay.”



Elliot, alongside Mary J. Blige and Queen Latifah, is currently producing a movie about the life and rise to fame of the Clark Sisters titled “You Brought the Sunshine,” after the successful eighth studio album of the group.

The biopic will be released in 2019 and will tell the story of the sisters: Karen Clark Sheard, Dorinda Clark-Cole, Twinkie Clark, Jacky Clark Chisholm, and Denise Clark Bradford, and how they became one of the most important gospel acts in the entertainment industry.


The sisters were honored at the 2016 Essence Music Festival and performed at Aretha Franklin’s funeral a few months ago, reminding everyone that they’re a force to be reckoned and that their vocals are still one of greatest to have graced the music industry.
