While overcoming abuse, betrayal and sibling rivalry, The Clark Sisters worked to break gospel music into mainstream radio.
Queen Latifah, 50, Mary J. Blige, 49, Missy Elliott, 48, and Holly Carter teamed up to executive produce The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel. The new film — from director Christine Swanson and written by Camille Tucker and Sylvia L. Jones — premieres on Lifetime April 11 at 8 p.m. ET and recounts the complex story of five sisters struggling to juggle their religious beliefs, familial obligations and personal desires on their journey to becoming the highest-selling female gospel group in history. The writers, director, executive producers and stars of the groundbreaking film are all black women.
