EARLY LIFE AND BACKGROUND

She was born on the 19th of October, 1957, and was raised in Detroit, Michigan to the family of late Elbert and Dr. Mattie Moss-Clark. Clark-Cole started singing at a very early age with Karen, Twinkie, Jacky, and Denise – her sisters. The sisters were singers in their father’s church and some of the songs they sang were written and composed by their mother.

She is a mezzo-soprano referred to as the “Jazzy sister” of the group she belonged to that always features high and fast melismas, rifts, runs, scats, and soulful growls. Her passion for singing started when her mother saw the gift in her and encouraged her in developing it. When she was young and while her peers were playing outside, she and her sister were working on their synergy.

According to her “We made a lot of sacrifices. My mom was a stickler for making sure we rehearsed before we went out to perform. She saw the gifts and talents within us and started shaping and molding us. She taught us discipline along with how to use our gifts.”
