List & Credits
By: Keith E. Crosby
I recently had the privilege to chat briefly with the talented singer,
songwriter, and musician, Twinkie Clark, of the legendary Clark Sisters.
Twinkie Clark has been a gospel icon for many years. And with the
recent release of her new CD entitled “Home Once Again…Live
in Detroit,” that debuted on Billboard Magazine’s Top
40 Gospel Chart at #9, she is right where she belongs, back at the
top of the charts. After listening to “Home Once Again…Live
in Detroit”, I don’t think anyone will be disappointed
with this CD because it has something for everybody. It was recorded
live earlier this year at Greater Emmanuel Institutional Church of
God In Christ right here in Detroit. Here’s what Twinkie had
to say about what her fans and gospel music listeners can expect from
her hot new CD.
DG.com: What did it mean to you to come home and
record here in Detroit?
Twinkie: It is always
special; there is no place like it. Being around hometown folks and
family. It’s very, very exciting.
DG.com: Where is home for you now?
Michigan. It’s about 3 hours from Detroit. It is a nice small
town. I am working in the music ministry at Holy Trinity Institutional
COGIC where my pastor is Bishop Nathaniel Wells.
DG.com: What can we expect from your new CD?
can expect something outstanding from this CD. Alex Ward was the producer,
and he did a great job. He produced Dorinda’s last album. He
presented a song, I presented 4 songs, there’s a song with my
sisters, and an organ solo. There is a funky gospel and upbeat gospel
on there. Things didn’t start out so great with this project
– but in several weeks things really came together. We had to
go into the studio to do some work but I was really happy about what
came out of this project. It all came together very fast.
DG.com: Who are you trying to reach with this CD?
Twinkie: I am trying
to reach the praise & worship audience with this CD. That’s
a group that I feel I haven’t done real well reaching in the
DG.com: Do you have a favorite song on the album
Your Presence”. That’s my favorite if I had to pick one.
Just because of the kind of person I am. Really seeking the Lord’s
face and presence. However it is not the track that I think will really
take off on the CD. “Everything You Need is Right Here”
will be a big hit with the listeners. I have been getting really good
feedback from the CD.
DG.com: Who were your biggest musical influences?
Twinkie: First there
is my mom (Dr. Mattie Moss Clark), and then it would have to be several
R&B singers – Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, and of course
Pastor Shirley Caesar.
DG.com: Who are some of your favorite gospel artists
Twinkie: Some of
the artists that I like are John P. Kee, Richard Smallwood, Yolanda
Adams, Hezekiah Walker, and Kim Burrell.
DG.com: Who are some of the up-n-coming artists
today that you like?
Mary Mary, Tonex, and of course I have to add my niece Kierra Sheard
to that list, and my cousin J Moss.
