Dorinda Clark-Cole

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
As a member of the gospel group the Clark Sisters, powerhouse vocalist Dorinda Clark-Cole had already earned a sizable following. Now, with her self-titled solo debut, she will certainly broaden her reach even further. Clark-Cole blends contemporary and traditional gospel, then adds a touch of jazz for a superbly performed collection of gospel praise. Her vocal mastery packs an emotional wallop on songs like "No Not One" and "It's Not Me," both contemporary-style cuts that in lesser hands may have been reduced to R&B gloss. The Clark Sisters guest on "Show Me the Way," a potent plea for God's direction that blends an easy jazz vibe with voluminous vocals. Clark-Cole ...

The Clark Sisters guest on "Show Me the Way," a potent plea for God's direction that blends an easy jazz vibe with voluminous vocals. Clark-Cole wrote or co-wrote 5 of the 12 tracks here, including the soaring "You Can't Hurry God," which finds the singer backed by an energetic gospel choir. Recorded live -- as are several of the tracks here -- it's one of those get-on-your-feet-and-say--amen moments that are so rarely captured on disk. Clark-Cole's solo career is off to a soaring start.
All Music Guide - Ashleigh Kittle
In 2002, Dorinda Clark-Cole, daughter of gospel choir director and composer Dr. Mattie Moss Clark and former member of the Clark Sisters, released her debut solo album. The self-titled project combines traditional gospel styles with touches of jazz and R&B. Songs include "If It Had Not Been for the Lord" and "I'm Still Here."

    Wonderful Music

    As a true fan of the Clark Sisters in particular, this is my first listen to Dorinda Clark. Truly, I have never spoken in "tongues" in my life...but, "No Not One" comes close to having me do so. The song is incredible.

    DORINDA IS CUTTING UP!

    THIS HOLE CD IS LOW DOWN. DORINDA IS SHOWING OFF ALL OVER THE PLACE. SHE STARTS OFF NICE COOL WITH "IF HAD NOT BEEN", THEN LETS IT GO WITH "NO NOT ONE". AFTER THOSE TWO SONGS DORINDA IS GONE, AND YOU CAN'T CATCH HER! SHE REALLY LOSES HER MIND ON "NOBODY LIKE JESUS" AND "I'M STILL HERE" AND "CAN'T TAKE MY JOY". THIS ALBUM IS A MUST HAVE, DORINDA LET'S YOU KNOW THAT W/ JESUS YOU NEVER HAVE TO LEAVE THIS WORLD THE SAME.

    THIS BETTER GET A GRAMMY, BILLBOARD, AND RECOGNITION FROM MICHAEL GREEN (PRESIDENT OF THE GRAMMYS.)

    OK PEOPLE, IF THIS ALBUM DOES NOT RECEIVE A GRAMMY, OR AT THE LEAST A NOMINATION THAT MEANS THAT SOMEBODY IS SLEEPING, NOT PAYING ATTENTION, OR SIMPLY DOES NOT APPRECIATE GOSPEL MUSIC. AS A MATTER OF FACT DORINDA JUST NEEDS TO GET THE LIFETIME ACHEIVEMENT AWARD. THIS ALBUM IS WITHOUT QUESTION THE ALBUM OF THE YEAR. THIS WILL GET YOU THROUGH ANYTHING. AS SOON AS I PURCHASED THIS ALBUM, IT HAS NOT LEFT MY CD PLAYER, MY SIGHT AND BEST BELIEVE NO ONE WILL BE BORROWING IT. DORINDA IS AT HER BEST VOCALLY, I MEAN THE GIRL IS BLOWING, AND SHE IS ANOINTED. I FEEL THE PRESENCE OF GOD, AND MY SPIRIT IS BEING MINISTERED TO BECAUSE ONLY THESE THINGS COME THROUGH PRAYER AND FASTING. SOMEBODY WAS IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD ON BEHALF OF THIS ALBUM. VICKI, CLAUDE, AND MONICA THANK YOU FOR MAKING A WISE INVESTMENT AND PRESENTING DORINDA TO THE WORLD. YOUR DECISION WILL NEVER BE IN VAIN. ASAPH WARD - HATS OFF TO YOU MY BROTHER. FOR REAL. NOW LETS TALK ABOUT THE FAMILY: ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS ''NO NOT ONE'' #2 KAREN, DORINDA, AND JAMES MOSS WOOOOO. ''SHOW ME THE WAY'' #6,LISTEN AND BE BLESSED. I GET SO EXCITED WHEN ALL THE SISTERS SING TOGETHER. LETS ALL STAND TO OUR FEET AND APPLAUD THE MAESTRO HIMSELF. ***JAMES MOSS***. MY GOD, WHAT'S GOING ON IN YOUR MIND? HOW, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHO, DAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG? WHAT IS IN THE WATER OF DETROIT? YOU ARE SO DOPE, I'M SO SERIOUS. YOU MAKE ME PROUD TO BE BLACK. YOUR BACKGROUND ARRANGEMENTS ARE SO INCREDIBLE. YOUR VOICE IS SILK. I TRULY THANK GOD FOR YOUR GIFT AND TALENT AND THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE GIVEN IT BACK TO HIM. YOU MAKE SOMEBODY WANT TO SCREAM. I KNOW YOU ARE A BEHIND THE SCENES TYPE OF PERSON BUT I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL THE DAY YOU ARE ON THE BIG SCREEN DOING YOUR THING AND DOING IT WELL. (THE NYSNC TRACK IS HOTTTTT) I HOPE THAT THIS ALBUMS BREAKS RECORDS, AND REACHES INTERNATIONAL RECOGNITION, BECAUSE IT TRULY DESERVES IT. I PRAY ALL THAT LISTEN ARE TOUCHED, SAVED, SET FREE, FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT OF GOD, TRANSFORMED, AND CHANGED. THIS IS A GOSPEL ALBUM WITH NO COMPROMISE...

    WHAT DO YOU EXPECT

    FIRST OF ALL SHE IS THE DAUGHTER OF DR. MATTIE MOSS CLARK AND THE SISTER OF JACKIE, TWINKIE, DENICE, AND KAREN. JAMES MOSS IS HER COUSIN. THE MUSICALITY THAT IS IN THIS FAMILY IS BEYOND GREAT, IT IS ANNOINTED. DORINDA'S ALBUM IS PHENOMINAL. I AM SO PROUD OF HER AND HER ACCOMPLISHMENTS. JAMES MOSS. WHAT DOES HE THINK ABOUT WHEN HE IS ARRANGING BACKGROUND VOCALS. I LOVE THIS ALBUM. I WISH DORINDA AS WELL AS HER WHOLE FAMILY WOULD GET THE RECOGNITION THEY DESERVE FROM THE MUSIC INDUSTRY BUT AS LONG AS THE FATHER, SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT ARE ON THEIR SIDE THAT'S ALL THAT REALLY MATTERS. I SUGGEST YOU PURCHASE THIS ALBUM AND ANY OTHER ALBUM THE CLARKS ARE ON
