The daughter of a Midwestern preacher, Chonda Pierce is a Christian comedian who developed a dedicated following in the mid-'90s through constant touring and appearances with Bill Gaither, both in concert and on television and videos. Her humor is a combination of storytelling, sketches and one-liners, all tied together with hope, inspiration and spirituality. Pierce made her major label debut with 1998's Havin' a Girls' Night Out; Yes and Amen followed a year later. Four Eyed Blonde appeared in 2001 and the comparisons to Carol Burnett began here.
Playing up these similarities, Be Afraid... Be Very Afraid was a sketch-oriented album that showed a screaming Pierce on the cover. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
