The long-awaited Clark Sisters biopic finally has a cast! Less than a year after we announced the iconic gospel group would be bringing their lives to the small screen, thanks to Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott and Mary J. Blige, we finally have a trailer that will celebrate and honor the legacy that is Karen Clark Sheard, Dorinda Clark-Cole, Jacky Clark-Chisholm, and Elbernita “Twinkie” Clark-Terrell.
The film follows actresses Christina Bell as Twinkie, Kierra Sheard as Karen (her real-life mother), Sheléa Frazier as Dorinda, Raven Goodwin as Denise and Angela Birchett as Jacky and will tell the story of “the highest-selling female gospel group in history and their trailblazing mother, Mattie Moss Clark. Credited with bringing gospel music to the mainstream, the five Clark sisters 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 First Ladies of Gospel airs on Lifetime, Easter 2020.
