I told my mom, “I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to keep up. They've been doing this for three years, their chemistry is already there... I'm nervous!” She was like, “Sierra, if you weren't doing well, I would tell you, because I'm not going to let you mess up my favorite show.” But I was very afraid when I first got here. This was one of my first consistent jobs by myself —I was so used to working with my sisters, [Lauryn and China Anne McClain], and singing with them. I had never sang a full song by myself, so I [didn’t] even know if my voice will hold up at the studio. But my family was a big support system. My sister screamed louder than I did when I booked it!

SM: Mmm hmm! We’ve gotten close. It was hard coming to Chicago by myself. At some point, my mother was with me, then Lauryn came up here to be with me, and then they left. But for the premiere of the show, Serayah texted me, “Hey, where are you watching the show?” I told her, “I'm just here in my hotel room” and she was like, “You should come over!” So I went over there, and we laughed and we ate. I don't know if she really knows how much I really appreciated it, but I was here by myself and it was the premiere, and I was away from my family. She didn't have to do that; she had no reason to be as sweet as she has been. But it really meant...so much. And I had a blast, and ate a home-cooked meal for the first time in God knows how long!

SM: It was big. My name was trending. That’s never happened before in my life. So I was excited. I had to take a moment and call my family and be like, “Guys...what is going on? Is this really happening?" And my sisters were crying; we were all emotional on the phone. It was like an outer body experience. But I felt so full and so blessed. And it’s only gotten better and bigger from there. So hopefully it keeps going. (Source: www.teenvogue.com)

“My parents started doing music in Atlanta many…years ago,” McClain began. “[F]rom there, acting was something that was unexpected for China and then it just happened for all three of us.I think it was always part of what we were put here to do, specifically as a family. It’s been a blessing to be able to work as individuals, especially as three, young Black women in this industry, to be able to all have opportunity, but this is very much so a family oriented thing and something that was not by accident at all. So, it’s been a journey.” (Source: www.essence.com)

During a conversation within the Entertainment All Access experience at the 2021 Essence Festival of Culture with fellow co-star Gina Torres and ESSENCE Social Media Director Charisma DeBerry, McClain opened up about what it’s been like coming from a family of creatives. (Source: www.essence.com)

When Sierra made her debut as Nessa on Empire’s season 3 premiere it was clear a star was born. As Nessa took the stage to perform “Need Freedom”, it was hard to take your eyes off her, and she’s only gotten better in the episodes since. But while Nessa had to wait until young adulthood for her big break, Sierra’s actually much more seasoned. She grew up in the industry, and formed the singing group The McClain Sisters with her younger sisters, Lauryn and China, when she was only 10. And when she was 12, the three girls appeared together in their first major big screen movie, Tyler Perry’s Daddy’s Little Girls. (Source: www.teenvogue.com)

You likely remember child actress and singer Sierra McClain from her role in Tyler Perry‘s Daddy’s Little Girls. She starred alongside her younger sisters, Lauryn and China, in the film and captured the hearts of many. These days, she’s all grown up and starring on Fox’s 9-1-1: Lone Star as a 9-1-1 operator, but she’ll always keep her family close. (Source: www.essence.com)
