Dorinda was born the fourth of five daughters to Elbert and Dr. Mattie Moss-Clark, a gospel choir director. Dorinda began singing as a youngster, alongside her sisters in their father’s church, occasionally performing their mother’s songs. Simply named The Clark Sisters, the group released their debut album “Jesus Has a Lot To Give” in 1973, and in the following year they gained nationwide attention after “Dr. Mattie Moss Clark Presents The Clark Sisters” hit the charts under the Sound of Gospel Records label. These ventures provided the basis for Dorinda Clark-Cole’s net worth.
The real breakthrough in Dorinda’s music career occurred in 1980, when she and her sisters released the live album “Is My Living In Vain” which then spent the entire year on the Billboard’s Gospel Music chart, peaking at No. 1. This album featured several hit singles, including “Speak Lord”, “Now Is The Time” as well as “Expect Your Miracle” which is still, over 20 years later, a staple in churches all over the states.
Their eighth studio album, released in 1981 – “You Brought the Sunshine” includes “Overdose of the Holy Ghost” song which was performed by Dorinda and showed the full dexterity of her unique and “jazzy” voice. It is certain that all these ventures have massively contributed to the overall size of Dorinda Clark-Cole’s wealth.

In her solo career, Dorinda Clark-Cole has released six studio albums so far, of which the most recent is “Living It” which hit the charts in 2015 and peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard’s Gospel Chart.
