Exclusive: Sheléa On Her Role In “The Clark Sisters: First Ladies Of Gospel,” Songfirmations & More

An acclaimed singer, songwriter and keyboardist, beyond having her own hits, Sheléa’s credits include Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder, David Foster, Dave Koz, Rickey Minor and Narada Michael Walden. As of this month, Sheléa can also add “actress” to her CV as she stars in the Clark Sisters bio-pic, as produced by Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige and Missy Elliott. Sheléa has also performed at The White House, been featured as part of a Grammy tribute and starred in her own PBS special.

I had the pleasure of speaking with Sheléa about portraying Dorinda Clarke-Cole in The Clark Sisters: First Ladies Of Gospel, working with David Foster, her newly-helmed concept of “songfirmations” and more, as recorded in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic on April 8, 2020. More on Sheléa — including tour dates — can be found online by visiting her official website at
