Encore: The Best of The Clark Sisters is a greatest hits collection by seminal gospel singing group The Clark Sisters to be released on February 12, 2008 through Dexterity Sounds/Rhino Entertainment.
The collection is the first of its kind, chronicling the group's mid- to late-80's recordings for Word/A&M. Though the Clark Sisters made their mark on the genre as independent artists, this collection spans the albums Bringing It Back Home, Conqueror, and the Grammy-nominated Heart & Soul from their first major label recording contract.
Apart from the Word recordings, this collection opens with a new recording of their hit song "You Brought The Sunshine" featuring American Idol finalist Melinda Doolittle. Encore also includes The Clarks' "Follow The Star" (with Dorinda on lead) from the holiday compilation of the same name. The album includes commentary by sisters Jacky and Karen between songs.
