“I’ve learned so much from them. They just have the anointing,” Blige gushed.
“Seeing their story was like seeing what do our angels go through? They’ve been my Earth angels. So we all want to see what their life was like. What did they sacrifice? What did they give up to save our lives? That’s why we’re telling the story,” she said.
According to the synopsis, the film tells the “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).
