The Clark Sisters, "Family Christmas"

4.5

The Clark Sisters' new holiday album, "Family Christmas," is truly a family affair as sisters Twinkie, Karen, Jacky and Dorinda are joined by younger members of the Clark clan. Karen's son, J. Drew Sheard, penned the gorgeous track "Beautiful Christmas," which features sister and chart-topping gospel artist Kierra Sheard on lead vocals. J. Moss serves up a potent version of Donny Hathaway's "This Christmas," while his brother, Bill Moss Jr., contributes a warm take on "We Are the Reason." And the sisters deliver stellar new renditions of "Silver Bells," "Silent Night" and "Hark the Herald Angels Sing." It's been more than 30 years since the Clark Sisters issued "New Dimensions of Christmas Carols" -here's hoping they don't wait that long again to deliver another holiday gift like this glorious album.-Deborah Evans Price
