This new Lifetime movie is executive produced by some of the hottest names in music: Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, and Missy Elliott. It is the “authorized musical tale” of the legendary Clark Sisters, recounting the story of the highest-selling female gospel group in history and their trailblazing mother, Mattie Moss Clark (Aunjanue Ellis).

The singers in question are Elbernita “Twinkie” Clark (Christina Bell), Jacky Clark Chisholm (Angela Birchett), Dorinda Clark Cole (Shelea Frazier), Karen Clark Sheard (Kierra Sheard), and Denise Clark Bradford (Raven Goodwin), five sisters who “overcame humble beginnings in Detroit, enduring abuse, loss, rejection, betrayal, and sibling rivalries to achieve international fame as icons of the Gospel music industry,” according to the Lifetime press release.

You may have noticed that the actress playing Karen Clark Sheard has the same last name — that’s because Kierra is Karen’s real-life daughter. At the 2020 Television Critics Association winter press tour, she told the audience that it was a “huge honor” to play her mother for this movie.

“It became more of a personal thing, learning her story and what she’s done as a trailblazer for gospel artists, gospel music, and to see how there are even pop artists that admire what she does, it has blown me away. Trying to sing like her, I literally became lightheaded trying to hit her notes. So, it really is special, and to see the strength that they carry to this day, and even along that journey it’s been really exciting,” said Kierra.

The other actresses echoed her sentiments, saying they grew up singing gospel music in church — and that was important in the casting process. Director Christine Swanson wanted to get singers who could “bring the house down” in order to really “get the essence of the Clark Sisters.”

EP Queen Latifah added, “If you can’t sing these songs then we’re a no-go. I think Kierra really speaks to how difficult that is. I think you may think this is some sort of typical casting, but I’d behoove any of you to go into the Clark Sisters’ catalog and become familiar with their music … I would love for you to listen to their music and try to break down their harmonies and the way that those tracks are built, and the way that they do their runs, and see if you can follow them, and see how challenging they are and how they bounce into different cadences. You got to have a pocket. You got to be able to really pull this off and it’s no easy task. And people love the Clark Sisters so much that you have to pull it off because you’re going to be looking at us like we better get this right.”

The Clark Sisters: The First Ladies of Gospel premieres Saturday, April 11 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime. It is being rebroadcast later that night at midnight ET/PT, on Easter Sunday at 11:30 a.m. and 10 p.m., on Monday, April 13 at 2 a.m., and on Saturday, April 18 at noon ET/PT.
