Jacky Clark-Chisholm

Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and actress JACKY CLARK-CHISHOLM has a lot to be thankful for this Easter weekend. She has a new single, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86W3q07T43E">Feel Good featuring the reigning "queen of hip hop soul" Mary J. Blige. She's also teamed up with her famous siblings---The Clark Sisters---for a brand new album titled The Return. But the icing on the cake is the premiere of tonight's highly anticipated Lifetime biopic, The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel.

The film, which is executive produced by Blige, Queen Latifah and Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott, recounts the story of highest-selling female gospel group in history and their trailblazing mother, Dr. Mattie Moss Clark. Credited with bringing Gospel music to the mainstream, the five Clark Sisters---Jacky, Twinkie, Dorinda, Denise and Karen---overcame humble beginnings in Detroit, enduring abuse, loss, rejection, betrayal and sibling rivalries to achieve international fame as icons of the Gospel music industry. 

UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry talked exclusively to "Aunt" Jacky this week as she dished about writing the script, actress Aunjanue Ellis playing her iconic mother and a very personal scene that almost didn't make it in the film. 

The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel airs TONIGHT at 8 p.m. EST on Lifetime.
