Face '83: The Clark Sisters

Ten years into their career, You Brought The Sunshine was the Clark Sister's biggest crossover hit; it came at a tough time as their decision to consort with mammon by playing the Grammy awards left the group detached from their church, and their mother.

Gospel experts insist that there's a distinct "Clark Sound", which might be the case if you listen to a lot of gospel music, but I'm not convinced.

Still, a song which caused a mini-Reformation style spasm in a church has to be treated with respect.

Face 6; History 5.
