On I SURVIVED, which is already being touted as a career-defining release for Clark-Cole, she collaborated with two of Gospel s most heralded and sought-after producers; longtime collaborator Asaph Alexander Ward (Kim Burrell, Smokie Norful, Vickie Winans) was at the helm of the live session, which took place before an enthusiastic crowd in Nashville, TN, while super-producer Warryn Campbell (Mary Mary, Brandy, Yolanda Adams) took the reins of the studio portion. The result is a powerhouse project rife with the absolute best of music and ministry.
Based in Detroit, Dorinda Clark-Cole developed her musical and performance crafts in the early 1970s as a member of the Clark Sisters, an influential multi-generational contemporary gospel vocal ensemble whose signature harmonies and intricate sound helped connect the worlds of R&B, pop and hip-hop with contemporary Christian music.
One of America's top female gospel groups, the Clark Sisters scored a crossover dance smash in 1983 with "You Brought the Sunshine," which hit #16 on the Billboard R&B Singles chart and #27 on the Billboard Dance Music/Club Play chart while its b-side, "Overdose of the Holy Ghost," provided a showcase for Dorinda's natural talent and vocal range.
Clark-Cole released Dorinda Clark-Cole, an eponymous debut solo album, in 2002; featuring the hits "I'm Coming Out" and a breathtaking "I'm Still Here," the album earned her a Soul Train Lady of Soul Award (Best Female Gospel Artist) and a pair of Stellar Awards. 2005 saw the release of The Rose of Gospel, a live tour de force which brought home another Stellar Award.
Her 2008 solo album, Take It Back -- which included the songs "Faithful," "Praise Your Way Out," "Yesterday," "It's OK," "No Weapon," "If I Were," "Got To Hold On" and "Take It Back" -- became her third straight album to hit Top 5 on the Billboard Top Gospel Albums chart. The title track, which peaked at #2 on Billboard's Hot Gospel Songs chart, received a BMI Song of the Year Award.
I SURVIVED will be available in stores and online on August 30th!!!
Top Customer Reviews
Stand outs: Holy One (I thought Dorinda had lost some of those notes), God Will Take Care (Lord have mercy I cant take this one), He Brought Me (cant stop shouting), For My Good, Back To You, God is Everything, and Thank You (Dorinda and Twinkies chemistry is superb).
Dorinda never fails to take me to another level, and yet again reiterates to me why she is my very favorite Gospel singer of all time!! And I sincerely believe this album displays some of Dorinda's best vocals in the last 10 years. I love this woman!! This album get 4.5/5 (And I might come back and change this grade b/c this album is continues to grow on me.....)
This project is full of passion, energy, vocal power, and most importanly the ANONITING!!! God is all over this one Dorinda, and I will continue to pray that God pours out his spirit and love all over your life, b/c that's exactly what you have done for others. Mattie is PROUD!!!
God Will take care of you-new arrangement on a classic, very nicely done
He brought me-foot stomping down home church, classic Dorinda
For my good-her signature style uptempo, makes you want to dance your trouble away!
Don't give up- reminds me of take it back, gives a strong message of hope
Back to you-a new sound from DCC, kind of had a gospel-rock influence
God is everything to me-definitely reminds me of Michael Jackson, I love this song
This is why-has a nice groove, again a little different than her usual but nice
*Praise & Worship
Holy one-a strong praise team song, reminiscent of KCS towards the end, beautiful!
*Gospel ballads (if you will)
We believe-gorgeous song about believing every word from God, one of my favs!
Thank you-Twinkie and DCC what more can you ask for? The best song on the c.d magic!
Welcome-is beautiful with a strong message welcoming God in, another of my favs!
Overall this is an excellent outing in every aspect. The message is still there and in a strong way, her voice is impeccable, and I love how she is showcasing her lower register a little in a few songs, it's beautiful. Would be nice to have a DVD of this. (wishful thinking) Very nicely done!
p.s Twinkie is in great voice on thank you!
Love every song from the opening Praise joint to the very last quartet song! She gives you all styles and hits every base!!!
This is a must have in your Gospel Collection!!!!
