The Clark Sisters

Gospel Group

Not to be confused with the 1940s/50s jazz group The Original Clark Sisters, the gospel quartet The Clark Sisters is comprised of Jacky Clark Chisolm, lead singer Elbernita “Twinkie” Clark, Dorinda Clark-Cole and Karen Clark Sheard. The four sisters are the daughters of legendary gospel musician Dr. Mattie Moss Clark. The women are known as pioneers of contemporary gospel, responsible for bringing the sound to the mainstream. Their hit songs include “Is My Living in Vain,” “Hallelujah,” ‘“Jesus is a Love Song” and “Pure Gold.” With two Grammys and millions of records sold to their credit, The Clark Sisters are the largest selling female gospel group in the history of the genre.
