The Clark Sisters loom large over the modern gospel landscape, which rests mainly on the legacy of their soul and jazz-influenced recordings for Detroit’s Sound Of Gospel label. Sample the highlights here.

‘Awake O Zion’. Tune ! Go Twinkie !!



Amen to this .. a collection made in heaven.  As you mention we should never under estimate the struggles Gospel artistes had to extend their musical and cultural boundaries and take the good word to the people without upsetting the orthodox  churches.  The Clark Sister's opened the door for the likes of  Kenny Bobien and Kirk Franklin to come through . Keep the Faith.
