In the 1970s, Dr. Mattie Moss Clark formed her daughters into the Clark Sisters. In 1973, they recorded their first album, Jesus Has A Lot to Give. In 1983, their signature song, “You Brought the Sunshine,” from the album of the same title, became a smash hit—as popular on dance floors as in churches.
