From executive producers and Grammy Award winners Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige and Missy Elliott comes the authorized musical tale of the incomparable gospel singers the Clark Sisters. 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 (portrayed by Christina Bell as “Twinkie,” Kierra Sheard as “Karen,” Sheléa Frazier as “Dorinda,” Raven Goodwin as “Denise” and 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.

Watch the official trailer below.


The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel will air Easter on Saturday, April 11 at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific, only on Lifetime.
