PRAISE REPORT! The Congregation LOVED 'The Clark Sisters' Biopic - Highest Rated Original TV Movie Of 2020, Period

​ ​ ​ ​

Attention, congregation! Your (virtual) Easter outfits and praise dances while watching "The Clark Sisters: First Ladies Of Gospel," just helped the movie set a record.  Deets inside.

If you weren't watching The Clark Sisters biopic this weekend, you were very likely the only one who wasn't.

Christina Bell as “Twinkie,” Kierra Sheard as “Karen,” Sheléa Frazier as “Dorinda,” Raven Goodwin as “Denise” and Angela Birchett as “Jacky” gave us life re-creating the life of everybody's original favorite non-secular (until they weren't) family - The Clark Sisters!

A little before The Braxtons, but around the same time as their fellow Detroit natives, The Winans, became known for their harmonious family trees, we had The Clark Sisters.

While folks knew their story, folks also quickly learned they didn't KNOW know their story.  And it was a doozy.

The movie hit a high note on Saturday night, delivering 2.7 million Total Viewers (in both live & syndicated airings), according to Nielsen Media Research, making it Lifetime's highest-rated movie since 2016 and the strongest original movie on all of television for 2020 across key demos, including both broadcast and cable.  Halleluuu!

Folks were talking about it ALL over social media, and it ranked #1 across all TV on premiere night with over 700,000 interactions, according to Nielsen Social.

Kierra Sheard thanked her co-stars and executive producers Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, Missy and more for helping her bring such an amazing project to life:

 

About grabbing that #1 spot, she said:

"Look at what happens when we come together!!! God did it! y’all did it! We did it! God is faithful! Let’s go! Thank you so much for tuning in with all of the love and support. #itKeepsHappening"

Sweet.

 

The movie re-airs with an encore presentation tonight (Monday, April 13 at 8/7c) and is also available On Demand.

If you watched the biopic, did you love it?!
