The Clark Sisters are bringing the sunshine just in time for Easter. If you didn’t know a biopic about the legendary gospel group airs this Saturday on Lifetime and we’ve got a sneak peak.
Need more reasons to watch? How about Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott and Mary J. Blige who are all executive producers on the project. The ladies sat down with Lifetime to dish on the impact of the Detroit-based gospel singers and why they wanted to be share their story.
“Their harmonies are just unexplainable,” said Blige who recounted hearing them sing for the first time when she was 7 years old. ” They were the first group to make me feel something.”
“It was important to me to make this film with my sisters Queen Latifah and Missy Elliott,” she added. “We owe it to them.”
The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel recounts the story of the highest selling female gospel group in history and of their trailblazing mother, Mattie Moss Clark (Aunjanue Ellis). Credited with bringing Gospel music to the mainstream, the five Clark sisters (Christina Bell as “Twinkie,” Kierra Sheard as “Karen,” Sheléa Frazier as “Dorinda,” Raven Goodwin as “Denise,” Angela Birchett as “Jacky”) overcame humble beginnings in Detroit, enduring abuse, loss, rejection, betrayal, and sibling rivalries to achieve international fame as icons of the Gospel music industry.
The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel premieres Saturday April 11 at 8/7c.
