TBGB Pick of the Week: February 20, 2007

“Blessed and Highly Favored”
The Clark Sisters
From the upcoming release Live – One Last Time
EMI Gospel 2007

There’s not a young female gospel group out on the highway today that cannot – and does not – acknowledge the Clark Sisters as a source of inspiration. Though the late Mattie Moss Clark’s progeny has pursued successful solo careers, the sisters joined forces one last time for their first live recording since 1993.

An early single from the project, due in stores April 10, is “Blessed and Highly Favored.” It’s a relaxed tempo outing that features the Clark Sisters’ tight harmonies and delightfully sassy vocal delivery. Produced by one of gospel’s brightest lights, Donald Lawrence, “Blessed and Highly Favored” is sure to climb the gospel charts. And if the live project lives up to its promotion, it will be in line for a Stellar nomination.
