Lifetime has released the official trailer for the highly anticipated biopic The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel. The movie debuts Saturday, April 11 at 8 p.m. EST.
As previously reported, the film 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.
In addition to the film, the Clark Sisters will be honored with the James Cleveland Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s Stellar Awards. CONGRATS LADIES!!!!
